GOD IS BIGGER THAN OUR PROBLEMS

Let’s encourage our kids while they are young to walk day by day with the Lord and to trust Him. No matter how big our problems and challenges are, they are nothing compared to our God. He created the whole universe. With a flick of His finger, whatever our problems are will be dealt with in His time and in His way, and after it has done its work on our character, as we look to Him to sort them out. King David started out when he was young to walk with the Lord and to trust Him. His life as a young shepherd boy, bravely protecting his sheep from bears and lions, prepared him for when he would one day meet Goliath, and then later to become one of the most famous kings of Israel, known to be ‘a man after God’s own heart’. King David became so famous that even today when someone says that they are fighting a ‘David-Goliath battle’, everyone knows what they mean, even if they have never read the original story. The Bible tells us that Goliath was six cubits and a span. What is a cubit and how big is it? It’s the distance between your fingertips to your elbow, so everyone will be a bit different. The standard cubit measurement from history was anywhere from 17.5 to 20.6 inches (44.5 to 52.3 cm). That makes Goliath somewhere around a minimum of 9 feet tall. Here are some photos of real life giants to get some perspective on the size of Goliath.

POP QUIZ:  Why did David pick up FIVE stones when he went to fight Goliath?  Answer  (Goliath had four brothers… David was ready for ALL of them!)

BIBLE VERSES

Bible Memory Verse:  1 Samuel 15:22  To obey God is better than giving Him a present!  (a wonderful paraphrase from a 13-year-old.)

Bible Memory Verse1 Samuel 16:7  The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart. (I’ve always loved this verse).

1 Samuel 17:37  David 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.

1 Samuel 17:45-51  Then said David to the Philistine, ‘You come to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield. But I come to you in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day will the LORD deliver you into my hand… that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saves not with sword and spear, for the battle is the LORD’S, and He will give you into our hands.’ And it came to pass when the Philistine arose and came and drew nigh to meet David, that David hasted and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine. And David put his hand in his bag, and took from there a stone, and slung it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth… And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled.

You can read all about the real life adventures of King David – the most famous king of Israel – in the Bible books of 1 Samuel, 2 Samuel, and 1 Chronicles, as well as read his beautiful poetry from the Psalms. It is a gateway into the presence of God.

DAVID ~ INFORMATION FOR KIDS

David & Goliath – information for kids  (Christiananswers; click on the text) discovery pages: Sling; Goliath; David; Fear, anxiety and worry—What does the Bible say?

Goliath  (Chuck Missler) …we explored the importance of understanding Genesis 6. The straightforward presentation of the text seems to clearly portray a strange union of fallen angels with women to produce a hybrid race called the “Nephilim” or fallen ones… Genesis 6:4 also includes the haunting phrase, “…and also after that….” Apparently these strange events were not confined just to the period before the Flood. We find that there seems to be some recurrence of those things which resulted in unusual “giants” appearing in subsequent periods later in the Old Testament narrative, specifically the giant-races of Canaan. There were a number of tribes… that were giants. The kingdom of Og, the King of Bashan, was the “land of the giants.” Later, we also find Arba, Anak, and his seven sons (the “Anakim”) also as giants, along with the famed Goliath and his four brothers.

David, man after God’s own heart  (Chuck Missler) …an overcomer is simply one who recognizes his moment- by-moment choices, confesses his sin and then, chooses to turn around and go God’s way. He is not someone who is perfect, religious or good. David in the Old Testament, if you recall, was an overcomer. In the New Testament, he was even called a “man after God’s own heart.” He certainly wasn’t perfect or good or religious! He simply knew how to confess his own sin and turn around from following it. This is the kind of overcomer we are talking about and that God desires. Why is becoming an overcomer so important?

How big was Goliath?  (genesis6giants) the Bible describes him as ‘6 cubits and a span‘; a cubit is roughly 18-20 inches, so that makes Goliath over 9 feet tall! Look at these photos of some known real life giants to get an idea of how big Goliath was.

The clues kept on coming… He would be a descendant of Adam. Thus, Satan’s subsequent stratagem was an attempt to contaminate the human gene pool… But that plan was a total washout. Only nine were saved from the judgement of the Flood… When God revealed that His plan would focus on a descendant of Abraham, Satan had 400 years to lay down a mine field… Then we discovered that He would be a descendant of David. Ominously, a chain of attacks ensued to wipe out His family. Again and again there were attempts to eliminate His heirs – but there was always an intervention that foiled the diabolical plots…”  Read more
