Five Sooth Stones

1 Samuel 17:40 KJV 1900
40 And he took his staff in his hand, and chose him five smooth stones out of the brook, and put them in a shepherd’s bag which he had, even in a scrip; and his sling was in his hand: and he drew near to the Philistine.
1 Samuel 17:40
1 Samuel 17:45-
1 Samuel 17:45–46 KJV 1900
45 Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied. 46 This day will the Lord deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.
There is no pain, Jesus can't feel. There is no hurt, that He can't heal. For all things work according to the masters purpose and his holy will. No matter what are going thru, remember that God only wants a chance to use you for the battle is not yours its the Lord's.
The Story of David and Goliath is a

It is not just about a battle
A Battle of men

more than a Battle of men, armys or Nations. It ,like many stories in the Bible, is a battle between the gods of this world and God the creator of the world. In every case God is looking for a man that will be the instument of God's justice and will in the world. God sets the stage, arranged the characters and facilitates the plot that ultimately declares Him and him alone as God.

Ephesians 4:11–16 KJV 1900
11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: 16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
