Date: February 1, 2008

Speaker: Pastor Dennis Sallas


Saul replied, “You are not able to go out against this Philistine and fight him; you are only a boy, and he has been a fighting man from his youth.” (1 Samuel 17:33)


Be a disciplined risk taker.  (1 Samuel 17:34-37)

Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; (1 Peter 1:13-14)


Be careful.  (1 Samuel 17:38-39)

Be very careful, then, how you live-not as unwise but as wise.. (Ephesians 5:15-18)


Stay on course.  (1 Samuel 17:45-47)

For everyone born of God overcomes the world.  This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.  (1 John 5:4)

So David triumphed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone;  (1 Samuel 17:50)

David learned that he couldn’t defeat the enemy with weapons that people of the world uses.  He needed to use his own weapons and his own ways that God had taught him in the beginning. (1 Samuel 17:40) 

We need to know that we can be ready for life’s challenges by our faith and confidence in GOD. (Zechariah 4:6)
