Summary: 5 Smooth stones used facing Giants
POCKET FULL OF ROCKS
II Sam. 21:15-22; I Sam.17:40
Ever wondered why David picked up 5 smooth stones from the Brook, I started looking into this thought a little bit more and found some enlightening things about this thought.
„» I want you to notice that the battle was not just against the Philistine(s) but even his oldest brother Eliab VS.28 and Even Saul the king VS.32-33.
Whenever you start to do something for the Lord God, not only will the enemy rise up against, so will your family, church people, and even the lost will send doubt your way
B. We must say¡KI can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. (Phil.4:13)
Let¡¦s see what David used these 5 Smooth Stones for¡K
1. HE NEEDED A STONE OF FAITH
VS.37 SAYS¡KDavid said moreover, The LORD that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said unto David, Go, and the LORD be with thee.
„» You and I are going to face things in this life that we are going to have our faith tried, some things will be spiritual, some will be in the flesh, whatever they may be, you better have a Stone of Faith to hit that GIANT square in the head and knock it down out of your way.
---He was confident. Look at VS.37---He Has delivered, He Will deliver
Galatians 2:20 (quickview)  says¡KI am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
„» David had FAITH, Faith that he could STAND firm in, WALK tall in, and LIVE by. DO YOU?
2. HE NEEDED A STONE OF STRENGTH
VS.34-36 SAYS¡KAnd David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father's sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock: And I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of his mouth: and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him.Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God.
„» It was his FAITH from the past that STRENGTHENED him for the future.
„» He delivered me from the Lion and the Bear and he will give me the STRENGTH to overcome this uncircumcised Philistine.
