Podcast #156: “Giants Fall” by Francesca Battistelli

Battlefield Basics with David in 1 Samuel 17

When was your last battlefield experience? I’m not talking about a military exercise, rather the battlefields of life. Francesca Battistelli’s song, “Giants Fall,” led me to 1 Samuel 17 to see David turning a food run into a battlefield story for the ages.

I wonder if we, like David, may be more prepared than we realize.

This Week’s Challenge

Read all of 1 Samuel 17. Take out your journal and make a list of observations. Meditate on key observations and verses throughout the week. If you are facing your own giant, ask God to reveal how He has prepared you. Keep your eyes fixed on God’s glory alone. Step up and, as Francesca Battistelli sings, “Though the stones in your hand might be small, watch the giants fall.”
