Goliath Never Had a Chance (1 Samuel 17:10-11, 1 Samuel 17:32-37, 1 Samuel 17:48-49)

Pastor Steve NewtonPastor Steve Newton, June 24, 2018
Part of the 1 Samuel series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Goliaths come in all forms:
The disease you just learned about and now need to confront and contend with.
The serious surgery you are facing that understandably makes you afraid.
The loss of your job or the threat of unemployment, which undercuts your confidence and self-esteem.
The never-ending demands of parenting your children.
The loss of a friend, a loved one, a dear one.
The daily diminishment of aging, a very real giant.
Goliath is whatever immobilizes you in fear—fear of the future, fear of intimacy, fear of failure, fear of risk, fear of extending yourself, fear of loneliness.
