David’s courage is a product of his character, and his character is a result of his closeness to God and submission to Him. David could face the bears, lion and even Goliath he encountered in his life’s journey. David’s story is a good example of courage because he faced his problems bravely. He knew and had so much faith that God would help him.

Even when his elder brother tried to discourage him when he went to the battlefield to give his brothers food, he didn’t allow it. He stood up to his brother in a respectful manner and was surprised that the children of Israelite could not stand up to Goliath, who was insulting the name of the Lord most High. That was the difference between David and his brothers.

David had reverence for God and was very courageous. He didn’t allow any disrespect to God to happen anywhere he was because he had a relationship with God and knew Him intimately. But his brothers didn’t have any knowledge of how mighty He is and His ability to deliver a person from evil. That was why they were all afraid of Goliath. On the other hand, David was not afraid of Goliath and was able to kill him. This is the difference between a born-again Christian and an unbeliever.

A born-again Christian knows how powerful God is. He or she is a courageous person and has a close relationship with God. A born-again Christian is like David, courageous, strong, a person after God’s heart, etc. No situation can make a born-again Christian afraid or sad. A born-again Christian prospers in anything that he lays his hand on. Life is better for a born-again Christian, because he has Jesus.


1. I surrender my life back to You, O Lord, in the name of Jesus.
2. O Lord, give me the spirit of courage, in the name of Jesus.
3. I plug my life into the socket of divine favour, in the name of Jesus.

4. Anything in my life, taking me back to my old life, catch fire, in the name of Jesus.
5. O Lord, let Your mercy say no to judgement in my life, in the name of Jesus.
6. Every Goliath troubling my life, your time is up, die, in the name of Jesus.
7. I speak woe to every Goliath of backwardness disturbing my life, in the name of Jesus.
