David’s brothers and others did not believe he could defeat Goliath, the giant. However, they were not in the field when he killed a lion and a bear. Only he and God knew that his past victories had prepared him to defeat the giant.

Surely, God has done something for you in the past that now gives you confidence to trust Him for the battle you are facing today. Maybe only you and God really know about the past victories that have prepared you to defeat the giant that you are facing today. Stand firm on your relationship with Him, and remember your past victories until you emerge as a victor in the battle you face today.

David took the challenge against all odds,
And put his fate in the hands of God,
The giant was big, but David didn’t care,
For he had killed a lion and a bear.
