Relate Magazine for teens just posted my newest devotion article called “Let God Be Your Giant Slayer” !

The young David slaying the giant Goliath is a favorite, well-known Bible story. Using this story, I offer some thoughts on what God is looking for in a “giant slayer”. He wants someone after His own heart, and that someone was David. David was only a young shepherd boy, but God used his circumstance to teach and train him to become a leader.

I use 1 Samuel 16:7 to teach what kind of characteristics God is looking for in a giant slayer. I also use 1 Samuel 17:36-37 to tell how well prepared David was to face Goliath. I encourage everyone to read the full account about David’s selection to be the next king and the full account of his encounter with Goliath in Chapters 16-17 in 1 Samuel.

Following the discussion about David and Goliath, I briefly bring up some familiar giants that may be present in a teen’s life: bitterness and addiction.

Everyone needs to trust God for help in slaying their giants! If you are facing a “giant” in your life, take it to the Lord in prayer. Let Him guide you in how to handle it.
