Moreover the Philistines had yet war again with Israel; and David went down, and his servants with him, and fought against the Philistines: and David waxed faint. And Ishbibenob, which was of the sons of the giant, the weight of whose spear weighed three hundred shekels of brass in weight, he being girded with a new sword, thought to have slain David. But Abishai the son of Zeruiah succoured him, and smote the Philistine, and killed him. Then the men of David sware unto him, saying, Thou shalt go no more out with us to battle, that thou quench not the light of Israel. And it came to pass after this, that there was again a battle with the Philistines at Gob: then Sibbechai the Hushathite slew Saph, which was of the sons of the giant. And there was again a battle in Gob with the Philistines, where Elhanan the son of Jaareoregim, a Bethlehemite, slew the brother of Goliath the Gittite, the staff of whose spear was like a weaver's beam. And there was yet a battle in Gath, where was a man of great stature, that had on every hand six fingers, and on every foot six toes, four and twenty in number; and he also was born to the giant. And when he defied Israel, Jonathan the son of Shimea the brother of David slew him. These four were born to the giant in Gath, and fell by the hand of David, and by the hand of his servants. (2 Sam. 21:15-22)
The Philistines looked with the eyes of men and trusted giants and great stature and physical attributes to conquer Israel, just as they had done with Goliath. David and the men of Israel trusted God and relied upon His strength for the victory over Goliath’s four brothers. David was getting older and no longer able to fight as he had once done, but God was still faithful and raised up others to continue the battles for Israel. God gave Israel the victory over Goliath and continued to be faithful in conquering the giant brothers of Goliath who opposed Israel.
When multiple attacks come against us, spiritually or even from the secular world through physical means, the child of God is to rely not on his own strength or the ways of the world but on the strength and power of God. We may face many battles, and many may be related to those we have already fought, but our God is faithful and those who know Him by faith in Him and His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary can rest in Him for victory. He has already given us victory over sin and death, and will never leave us nor forsake us, even as we get weaker in this life but renewed in our minds and become more like Christ in our walk with Him who is our victory, our life, and our strength. God is our champion as we continue the missions, ministry, and discipleship which we are commanded as we reach the lost for Christ, teach all nations all He has commanded, and preach His Word at all times and in every situation. We glorify God and stand victorious over the giants of despair, doubt, distraction, and depression, not because of us, but because of Jesus Christ and His love, mercy, and grace as our Creator, Redeemer, and King.
While we are here, God has sent those of us who are His saints and know Him out into this world to reach the lost that they might be saved from sin. He desires that His people strive to be holy and obedient unto Him that we might minister to those around us who are hurting and in need as He provides. We serve others, equipped with the Word of reconciliation and righteousness, rightly divided and fitly spoken, that they may see Christ in us, the hope of Glory. Our God has commanded us to love one another with an unfeigned love, even as He first loved us, and to disciple one another in the Word of God so that we may all grow in grace and in the Knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Our Lord has commissioned those who are His with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to go where He sends us in the power of the Holy Spirit. As we go, we are to proclaim the Good News of forgiveness through repentance and reconciliation with the Father through faith in His Son, that those who believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah of God might have life in His Name.
God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. God calls you to faith in Christ and His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with God, forgiveness from God, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of God who is God the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
