In another war with the Philistines, Elhanan son of Jair killed Lahmi, the brother of Goliath the Gittite whose spear was like a ship’s boom.
And then there was the war at Gath that featured a hulking giant who had twenty-four fingers and toes, six on each hand and foot—yet another from the clan of giants. When he mocked Israel, Jonathan son of Shimea, David’s brother, killed him.
These came from the clan of giants and were killed by David and his men. (1 Chronicles 20:4-8)
All the experts said that it was humanly impossible for a human to run a mile in less than four minutes. They looked at all the data and concluded it just couldn’t be done.
But in 1954, Roger Bannister ran a mile in 3:59.4.
Since that time, over 1400 runners have been inspired by Bannister’s success and have also broken the “unbreakable” barrier of a 4-minute mile.
Before David faced the giant Goliath, the experts were probably all in agreement: giants just can’t be killed by normal-sized humans.
But David killed Goliath. And then, inspired by his success in doing the “impossible,” David’s fellow warriors began chopping down giants too!
What’s holding you back? What have you or other so-called experts declared “impossible” or “unbreakable” or “undoable”?
If God is calling you to take on the giant, DO IT!
Defy the so-called experts. Do the “impossible.” Don’t let what others say is un-doable hold you back from victory!
