Scripture: 1 Samuel 17
What Goliath did was a common occurrence in warfare in the Eastern world. Often the armies would choose representatives to go one-on-one, and whoever won the one-on-one contest would give victory to the entire army. Goliath issues this challenge every morning and every evening for forty days. That is the way it is with giants in our lives. They don't come just once and leave; they meet you in the morning when you get up and they go to bed with you every night. If you don't confront them and conquer them they will make your life miserable.
"For some of you here, right now, your biggest problem is not the problem you are facing. The biggest problem is you are not willing to face the problem." --Dr. Merritt
