The Most Famous Trash-Talker

1 Samuael 17:45, Goliath trash talk
The nine-foot Goliath was a trash-talker. He had a reputation to match his mouth, but it didn't match God's reputation.

Trash-talk is used today to distract opponents in sports, gaming, and street fights, but Goliath used it to frighten the entire Israeli Army.

Then along came the shepherd-boy David who used the only weapon that could silence the nine-foot enemy--FAITH in God's name.

David said:
“You come to me with sword, spear, and javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord Almighty... the Lord does not need weapons to rescue his people. It is his battle, not ours.” 1 Samuel 17:45-47 

Satan is a trash-talker too, telling us God is too small and our problems are too big. When we hear him, we can fight him with FAITH in God's name by reciting God's promises until he retreats. 

What a blessing to know it's God's battle, not ours!

  1. Found you through the blog hop.
    So true! Great post! reminds me of all the times I hear the lies and know they are not from God! And it also reminds me that I do not want to be a trash-talker, but a truth-giver.

  2. It is God's battle and it doesn't matter what anyone else has to say!

  3. Not going to listen to the trash talkers!!
