LIFE LESSONS FROM THE BOOK OF 1 SAM 17:23 & 25.
"And as he talked with them ,behold there came up the champion , the Philistine of Gath, Goliath by name, out of the armies of the Philistines , and spake according to the same words:and David heard them.And the men of Israel said ,Have ye seen this man that is come up? surely to defy Israel is he come up: and it shall be , that the man who killeth him, the King will enrich him with great riches, and will give him his daughter , and make his father's house free in Israel."
BENEFITS OF HAVING A GOLIATH IN YOUR LIFE!
1.Goliath brought David fame . Your Goliath will always look so tough in the beginning , but watch it , there is always an end to every Goliath in your life. No matter how tough the Goliath is , lol, listen , there is an end . " For surely there is an end ; and thine expectation shall not be cut off." Prov 23:18. Believe the word and not the facts .
