1Sa 17:1-58. Mark Vivian. The account of David & Goliath is such a well know Bible story; especially for those who’ve grown up in the church. It reveals our living God’s work through His anointed, soon-to-be king, to rescue God’s people from the enemy which threatened to undo them. David knew the truth about the victory - it was not his. He said it was the Lord who delivered him (v.37). It’s this same truth in which God’s people can trust and rest.
