The Giant of Fear 1st Samuel 17 Skip Heitzig
One of the most paralyzing of all human emotions is fear. It can rob us of reason and faith. It makes a bad situation worse than it really is, and it saps us of energy and confidence. David would write later on, “I sought the LORD, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears”(Psalm 34:4). But in our story today he faced a fearsome giant (literally) that his country was in dread of. Let’s consider how fear works and by what means it can be defeated.
I. Fear Is Intimidating (vv. 8-11)
II. Fear Can Be Debilitating (vv. 21-24)
III. Fear Breeds Squabbling (vv. 28-29)
IV. Fear Requires Conquering (vv. 45-47)
A. By Remembering Past Victories
B. By Realizing Personal AssetsC. By Relying on a Powerful God
