1Samuel 17:4 “And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.”
When I took a closer look at this story, I saw why Goliath had to lose to David. He lost the battle from the day he decided to fight Israel. How do I mean?
The name Goliath is one of the worst names a man can be given. His name betrayed him. The name Goliath means “go into captivity”, “shamelessly”, “reveal” and “uncover”.
I want to believe that immediately David heard the name Goliath, he started laughing. He must have been bemused by the action of the soldiers who had been running away from the giant for forty days. The young man knew something the elders didn’t know.
David was not looking at the height of the giant, he was seeing his nakedness and weakness! Goliath came to expose himself. He announced to the whole world that he was weak, naked, and shameless. Goliath revealed and uncovered himself.
Friend, your enemy is not really who he claims to be. Goliath came out looking powerful, strong and unconquerable. The only thing the soldiers and Saul saw was the physical side of the giant enemy. They were intimidated by his size and physique but in reality he was weak and without protection.
Numbers 14:9 “Only rebel not ye against the LORD, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the LORD is with us: fear them not.”
Numbers 14:9 “Do not rebel against the LORD and don’t be afraid of the people who live there. We will conquer them easily. The LORD is with us and has defeated the gods who protected them; so don’t be afraid.”” (GNB)
Any enemy that comes against a believer or a child of God will lose. The day he comes against you marks his end because he will be exposed! The gods that has been protecting him or her will run away. His defense will depart from him and he becomes bread for the believer.
