Summary: Your giants appear with revived courage in moments when you are to weak to fight for yourself...

Fighting with revived Courage

2 Samuel 21:15-22

2 Samuel 21:15 Moreover the Philistines had yet war again with Israel; and David went down, and his servants with him, and fought against the Philistines: and David waxed faint. 21:16 And Ishbibenob, which was of the sons of the giant, the weight of whose spear weighed three hundred shekels of brass in weight, he being girded with a new sword, thought to have slain David. 21:17 But Abishai the son of Zeruiah succoured him, and smote the Philistine, and killed him. Then the men of David sware unto him, saying, Thou shalt go no more out with us to battle, that thou quench not the light of Israel. 21:18 And it came to pass after this, that there was again a battle with the Philistines at Gob: then Sibbechai the Hushathite slew Saph, which was of the sons of the giant. 21:19 And there was again a battle in Gob with the Philistines, where Elhanan the son of Jaareoregim, a Bethlehemite, slew the brother of Goliath the Gittite, the staff of whose spear was like a weaver's beam. 21:20 And there was yet a battle in Gath, where was a man of great stature, that had on every hand six fingers, and on every foot six toes, four and twenty in number; and he also was born to the giant. 21:21 And when he defied Israel, Jonathan the son of Shimeah the brother of David slew him. 21:22 These four were born to the giant in Gath, and fell by the hand of David, and by the hand of his servants.


If we were to write a descriptive narrative about the account in these passages of scripture we would, More than likely focus on David and his weakness, Abishai and his conquest over ishbibenob, jeopardizing the Covenant blessing of Israel (Light), this fight was not won alone and all of this would be adequate, in doing so we use the giants as negative obstacles and thus leave out the pivitol purposes of a perpetual fight with these four giant that occur at different seasons.

Of the grants you Have:

1) Ishbibenob - Who shows up in a season when the king is weak

2) Saph - Shows up and encounters the remnant of the leadership team seeking there devour only to get to David

3) Raph - Goliath's Brother seeking revenge for the slaying of his brother by the hands of David when he was a young man

4) Only known by his issues or abnormalities

On the other hand there is:

1) Abishai - Means: The present of my Father

2) Sibbechai

3) Elhanan

4) Jonathan

Though your giants will never forget your successful defeats, especially when:

They were affiliated with giants connected or kend to them and they wake up in the time that you are weak and faint,

They see you are not capable of fighting for yourself

3 things I see in this text:

1) Fainting but not fleeing

2) Consumed but not concerned

3) There's always more than the eye can see

1) Fainting but not fleeing

Whenever you are at your weakest points in life God inhabits (lives in) your ccircumstances and sends supply for your situation

God is a defender of the weak:

1) Luke 7:37-48 - A Sinful Woman - This woman annoints the feet of Jesus in the presence of our Giants religious rulers

2) Luke 13: 10-16 - A Weak Woman - This woman had an imffermity for 18 years and was loosed from this bong

3) John 12:3-8 - Mary of Bethany - Annoints Jesus's feet with costly oil and spikenard

Psalms 37:25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

2) Consumed but not concerned

Any great man will grow old and require those he breathed into to accomplished the courageous deeds when the leader is finished fighting giants.

There is no concern because God will continue to raise up leaders when the leaders of the previous generation pass from the scene.

David's legacy lay not only in what he accomplished, but in what he's lehaving behind - a people prepared for victory. David's triumphs were meaningful not only for himself but for others who learned victory through his teaching and example.

3) There's more than meets the eye

Your giant has height and vantage, sight advantage but not the right advantage; that lies in the hands of God to I've as he wills to give
