Our Bible Reading today is about Goliath. Goliath was a giant. He was more than nine feet tall!
The Bible tells us about other people who were very tall. Deuteronomy 9:2-3 tells about people called Anakites who were tall and strong. 1 Chronicles 20:4-8 also talks about giants. One of these giants had six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot! Another giant, Og, was a king who slept in a bed that was more than 13 feet long and 6 feet wide (Deuteronomy 3:11).
When the Israelites faced these giants, they were scared. But David knew God was with him. God helped David defeat Goliath.
Sometimes we face problems that seem like “giants” to us. We become scared, and we think that we cannot overcome these problems. We need to remember that God was with David. God will be with us, too, when we are scared or when we face difficult situations.
Ask God to help you today. He will give you courage and strength.
