    1. Jer 29:11, 1 Sam 17:8-10,23-24 God has an awesome purpose and plan for each of us to fulfill here in this world, but we must understand that the devil will send a Goliath to try and stop us from accepting Jesus and from fulfilling Gods will for our lives.
      1. Matt 19:26 The good news is that God has provided us a way to confront and conquer every Goliath that will come at us to try and stop us.
      2. Gal 5:7-8  If we choose to be idle or lazy or if we give in to the temptations that come at us or the fear that tries to stop us then we will remain limited and will do little for God.
    2. James 2:26, Matt 11:12 We will only be able to conquer Goliath and fulfill Gods will for our lives if we are active in our faith and take bold steps of faith towards God.
  2. 1 Samuel 17:45-46 The first step that we need to take to defeat Goliath is we need to be bold and directly confront the Goliath that is in our way, if we run in fear we will never defeat Goliath
    1. 2 Cor 6:14+17 We also need to separate ourselves from all wrong influences and wrong relationships and any weak points of temptation that cause us to fall into sin, If we are living in sin, we need to repent, and we need to make ourselves accountable to others
      1. 2 Tim 1:7  If our Goliath is fear, then we need to boldly confront our fears by doing exactly what fear tells us we can’t do and trust that God will meet us there.
      2. Ecc 12:1 We need to spend our time serving God in the ministry in our youth, leading others to Christ, and developing our leadership rather than being idle with our time.
  3. Hebrews 10:36, Gal 6:9 The way we defeat Goliath is that we remain faithful in these areas trusting that God in his perfect timing will give us victory over every Goliath that wants to get in our way and try and stop us! #Borntoconquer!
