(The following excerpts were taken from  I am Mad at Hell—I’m Not Taking It Anymore“)

The morning sun rose, painting the sky with hues of pink and gold as the valley of Elah stirred with anticipation. Among the ranks of Israel’s army, tension hung thick in the air, mingling with the scent of sweat and fear. Yet, amidst the trembling warriors stood a shepherd boy whose gaze remained fixed upon the hillside where the giant Goliath awaited his challenger.

The atmosphere would have been tense as the armies gathered for the impending battle. Suddenly, a hush fell over the valley, disrupted only by the booming footsteps of the towering Philistine champion. He was a sight to behold, donning a suit of bronze armor and wielding a sword fit for a giant. Goliath’s sword was enormous, weighing an astonishing 600 shekels or roughly 15 pounds. To put it into perspective, a typical long sword would weigh between 2½ and 4½ pounds at most. Therefore, Goliath’s sword was massive and extremely heavy, highlighting his immense strength and skill as a warrior. It was no wonder his opponents would have been intimidated by such a formidable weapon wielded by a giant like Goliath.

As he stepped forward, his presence cast a shadow across the land, striking fear into the hearts of all who beheld him. David refused to let his fear and doubt get the better of him. He was not alone in this fight, for he had faith in the God of his fathers, who would be his shield and strength. The sounds of clashing weapons and the screams of soldiers filled the air as David stood resolute amidst the chaos and confusion of war. Despite the overwhelming odds against him, he remained a beacon of hope in a world consumed by fear. With nothing but a sling, five smooth stones, and his unwavering faith, he was ready to face the giant that stood in his way. David, undeterred by the enormity of his adversary, stepped forward from the ranks of Saul’s army. He was filled with courage, and his spirit was fortified by faith. With each stride he took, the ground trembled beneath his feet, echoing the resounding beat of his resolve. He knew the battle before him could not be won with a sword or spear but with faith and conviction.

This battle wasn’t a physical test of his strength and agility for David. It was a test of his faith and resolve. He knew that with God on his side, no giant could ever defeat him. With a steadfast heart and an unyielding spirit, David was prepared to meet his destiny head-on, ready to face whatever trials lay ahead. As he strode towards the battlefield, the eyes of both armies lay upon him, transfixed by his boldness. The sound of his racing heartbeat was the only thing that drowned out the murmurs of doubt that swirled around him. Amidst a sea of skeptical stares, one set of eyes remained fixed on him with an intensity that made him shiver – the giant Goliath. His lip curled into a sneer of utter contempt as he beheld the young challenger who dared stand before him.

With a voice that rang clear and strong across the valley, David addressed the mighty Philistine. His words were laced with the confidence that could only come from a heart steadfast in its trust in the Lord. “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin,” he declared, his voice unwavering. “But I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.” – 1 Samuel 17:45-46 As the tension reached its peak, the moment of truth arrived, and David, with nothing but a sling in hand and five smooth stones, faced off against the giant that had terrorized his people. With a single smooth stone, he let fly his weapon, guided by the hand of God. He watched as it found its mark, striking Goliath square in the forehead.

With a mighty crash, the giant fell to the earth, his towering frame crashing down in defeat before the young shepherd boy who had dared to stand against him. At that moment, amidst the stunned silence of both armies, the impossible became possible, and the victory that had once seemed so far out of reach was now within their grasp. For David, the journey was far from over. Still, as he stood victorious over the fallen giant, he knew that with God on his side, no giant, no obstacle, could ever stand against him. So, with hearts lifted in triumph and voices raised in praise, the armies of Israel celebrated their unlikely champion. This shepherd boy had faced the giants and emerged victorious.
