HOPE FOR THE UNDERDOG

I.         God has ______________ that _________ you.

Then Saul dressed David in his own tunic.  He put a coat of armor on him

and a bronze helmet on his head.  David fastened on his sword over the

tunic and tried walking around, because he was not used to them.  "I can-not go in these,” he said to Saul, “because I am not used to them."  So he

took them off.                                                                          1 Samuel 17:38-39a

"I cannot go in these,” he said to Saul, “because I am not used to them."

So he took them off.  Then he took his staff in his hand, chose five smooth

stones from the stream, put them in the pouch of his shepherd's bag and,

with his sling in his hand, approached the Philistine.

                                                                                                1 Samuel 17:39-40

II.        God has __________ that __________ you.

Meanwhile, the Philistine, with his shield bearer in front of him, kept

coming closer to David.  He looked David over and saw that he was only a

boy, ruddy and handsome, and he despised him.   He said to David, "Am I a dog, that you come at me with sticks?"  And the Philistine cursed David

by his gods.  "Come here,” he said, “and I'll give your flesh to the birds of

the air and the beasts of the field!"                                   1 Samuel 17:41-44

David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear

and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty, the

God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.  This day the LORD will

hand you over to me, and I'll strike you down and cut off your head. Today I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds of the air and

the beasts of the earth, and the whole world will know that there is a God

in Israel.  All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the LORD saves; for the battle is the LORD's, and He will give all of

you into our hands."                                                                 1 Samuel 17:45-47


 

III.       God has __________ that ___________ with you.

  As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the

battle line to meet him.  Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he

slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead.  The stone sank into his

forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground.

                                                                                                  1 Samuel 17:48-49

 So David triumphed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone; without a

sword in his hand he struck down the Philistine and killed him.

                                                                                                       1 Samuel 17:50

 

 

 

 

NEXT STEPS

 

1.       Resist the shoddy things that we’re told to use in

           combating our fears or enemies. God uses ordinary

           people like you and I to do extraordinary things

           when we allow Him to prepare us uniquely.

2.       Resist listening to your detractors and those who

           don’t believe in you as well as the negative thoughts

           that invade your mind. Let God free you with His

           Word, prayer, songs and through His Church.

3.       Resist being stuck from moving forward towards

           your battles. God wants to achieve victory with us

           as we take steps of faith regardless of the size of our

           enemy. Experience God’s unlimited power by faith.
