A Band of Brothers–Week 2

1 Samuel 17: The Battle with Giants in Your Life

Festering Trouble (1 Samuel 17:1-15)

Situation from the Text:

The Battlefield (1 Samuel 17:1-3)

The Giant (1 Samuel 17: 4-11)

The Shepherd (1 Samuel 17: 12-15)

Application to your life:

  • What Giants are you facing that question your God?
  • Are you faithful to do the little things that no one sees?

Four Traits (1 Samuel 17: 20-50)


Thoughts from the Text:

L Little things make the difference so be faithful (1 Sam 17:20; 34-37)

E Expect criticism and Evoke your past successes(Criticism: 1 Sam 17:28, 33; Past success 1 Sam 17:34-37)

A Always be Yourself and do not wear someone else’s armor(1 Sam 17:38-39)

D Declare that the Battle is the Lord’s and give him the glory(1 Sam 17:37, 45-47)

Application to your life:

  • Name the little things that can make a difference in your life. Spiritual, financial, relationships with others?
  • What are you doing right now that is so radical others are criticizing you for it? If nothing, then is that a good thing or are you wasting your life?
  • Write down some past successes that you can always look back to where God was faithful.
  • What are the gifts that God has given you? Are you trying to be someone else instead of God’s unique masterpiece?
  • What areas of your life do you need to turn over to the Lord and give him the glory for overcoming?

Final Triumph (1 Samuel 17:50-57)

Thoughts from the Text:

The battles of our life are not really about us. They are about God. In fact all of our lives should   not point to us but should point to God.

Application to your life:

  • What do you need to change in your life so that it points more to God and less to you?
  • Name the first giant in your life that you are giving over to God this week.
  • If you have already conquered a giant or after you conquer one, who will you tell so that your life points to God and what He has done in and through you?
