1 Samuel 17:33-58 – Facing the Giant

James Hewitt quoted an anonymous saint as saying “Give me a hundred men who fear nothing but sin, and desire nothing but God, and I will shake the world. I care not a straw whether they be clergymen or laymen, and such alone will overthrow the kingdom of Satan and build up the kingdom of God on earth” (Illustrations Unlimited, 128).

David was such a man, and he shook the world in which he lived when he slew the great Philistine giant Goliath in the Valley of Elah. Just imagine what God could do today with a hundred men or women like David who feared nothing but sin and desired nothing but God, men and women who faced their giants instead of fleeing them!
