    Our God is awesome. The story of David and Goliath reminds us of the power of God over ALL forces. After all, He is the Creator of the universe (multiverse) and everything is under His control. To draw from this immeasurable source of power, we must love and obey Him. We must stay at the centre of His will all the time and victory over the Goliaths in our lives, including sin, will be assured.

    To B. K. Miller - Also, angels are Spirits; they cannot reproduce. I've seen this question on here many times from different men - never from a woman. As to giants; really now how big does a giant have to be? The Israelites were and are a relatively short people, like their 'brothers' the Ishmaelites. And look at f'ball and basketball men. They are giants.

    To Brian k. Miller - There's nothing wrong with researching for things not found in God's word, but if He wants us to know something, i.e. Goliath's father - It will be in His word, as a general rule. Goliath's father isn't pertinent to salvation. Neither Goliath, BUT - his story was - faith in God and not man, i.e. Saul's armor.

    You have to just love David; Ps. 20:17 - ".....but we will remember the name of the Lord our God." 1 Sam. 17:45 - "....., but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts ....."; (who is the 'phillistine' to defy the armies of the living God?!"). I love it, I love it; HALLELUJAH!!!
