Summary: The Scriptures teach us that God’s people are in a spiritual warfare, and as in any warfare there is need for a plan of battle so we can effectively fight against our enemy (Satan) and gain the victory over him.
Giant - Killers
Scripture Reading: 1 Samuel 17
Scripture Text: Romans 8:35-37 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?  As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.  Nay,
in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
The Scriptures teach us that God’s people are in a spiritual warfare, and as in any warfare there is need for a plan of battle so we can effectively fight against our enemy (Satan) and gain the victory over him.
Victory has been assured us!!
Romans 8:37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
2 Cor. 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ....
2 Cor. 10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
However, this does not negate our need to fight against and resist our enemy.
Matthew 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
Ephes. 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
1 Samuel 17 gives us a classic example of victory over a seemingly unconquerable foe. It is the story of David the giant - killer!!
Ephes. 6:10-12 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.  Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
As Christians, we face many “giants” in our walk with Christ, but through the study and application of His Word, and the power of the Holy Spirit, we can learn to be “giant - killers”!!
There were no “giant - killers” in Saul’s army until David came along. The entire army of Israel was cowering in fear of Goliath and his threats. When David, the “giant - killer” arrived, things began to change for the better!
God is still looking for “giant - killers” today! He is still looking for men and women who will serve Him with a whole heart and allow Him to empower them to fight against the “giants” of our day.
You can be a “giant - killer” in the Army of God if you will meet the qualifications as David did. Let’s take a look at the characteristics of a “giant - killer”.........
I. A Giant-Killer is Faithful and Responsible in Little Things.
1 Samuel 17:15 But David went and returned from Saul to feed his father’s sheep at Bethlehem.
A. David had been appointed as Saul’s armor bearer, a position of great honor, but he had remained faithful to the menial task of being a shepherd of his father’s sheep.
Luke 16:10 He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much:
