We can listen to the voices of rage and anger in our lives. We can hear the shouts of the world around us, or we can listen to God's voice of love.

Scripture: 1 Samuel 25:1-42
The untold story of David and Goliath is that David was the perfect warrior to defeat him. He was a lethal slinger, wielding a projectile at the speed of a 45 caliber bullet into the head of a nearsighted giant. The real story is not just to expect the miracle, but be the miracle and step into God's opportunity. Preached at Casas Church. Used by permission.

Scripture: 1 Samuel 17:3-49
We all face giants in our lives. Don't be caught off guard. You have a God-given advantage. The Jewish soldiers said of Goliath, "He's too big to kill." David, full of faith, said, "He's too big to miss!" Preached at Elevation Church. Used by permission.

The truth about temptation is that it's not a sin to be tempted, only to give in. Don't blame God, others or the bait. When tempted run, don't try to resist. And when you do fall prey to temptation, remember that failure isn't final. Preached at North Coast Church. Used by permission.

Scripture: James 1:13-15, Matthew 4:1-11, Genesis 3:4-5, 1 Samuel 15:19-25, 1 John 1:9
David was seen by others and likely by himself as the last person for God to choose to be something even close to king of the nation, of his people Israel.

Raising children in a corrupt society has its challenges. Hold on tight: commit to the tough process, provide clear direction, encourage more than discourage and release them when it's time to grow up.

David's darkest hour running from King Saul was the day he returned home to Ziklag to find his family, flocks, and food cruelly ripped away. How did David deal with his crisis in the wilderness? How do we handle ours? Listen, lean and learn. Preached at Reality L.A. Used by permission.

Hanan, the Ammonite king, has bad advisors who arrogantly reject King David's peace treaty and support. In contrast, Joab, David's general, surrounds himself with wise and brave men. Like Joab, we need to intentionally surround ourselves with brave, wise, godly men and women.
