               David, the Summit Who Enjoyed Spiritual Victory (1 Samuel 17:41-47)                   2/14/2021


The saved people of God can become a spiritual summit albeit lacking in other things (academics, power, specialty, worldly status). The spiritual summit is our original form (Genesis 1:26-28), although we lost everything, it is a blessing that we restored the moment we were saved. This is the covenant that was given to the Israelites who were saved first (Deuteronomy 33:29). It says, “Happy are you!” and that God will be their shield and sword and help them. No matter how small or difficult, it is over when God helps. Our enemies will surrender, and we will tread on their heights. What kind of person is a spiritual summit? We’re not talking about someone who is merely smart, rich and has high status. It is someone who has received God’s blessing. It is someone who receives God’s help. It is someone who enjoys God’s power and victory. What does God want to do lastly? He wants to raise them as those who will proclaim who God is to the world (evangelism disciple). We have received the identity and authority to enjoy this blessing when we were saved. David from the passage is the model of this blessing. Goliath who possessed many things of this world mocked young David, but David stood with this blessing of the spiritual summit. The miracle would be Goliath not being defeated. People say the opposite and say that Goliath falling was the miracle. That is because they do not know the blessing of the spiritual summit.


  1. David enjoyed the blessing that God had given to him(Blessing of Salvation)

1) David is the model of all blessings. He was a person whom God had chosen, loved, and used.

David was a man of God’s heart (Acts 13:22). He hadn’t learned much, but he was someone who knew God’s heart. The poems he wrote while praying became the book of Psalms. The people loved and accepted him even when he became king. The most important blessing was that Christ came through his descendants.

2) There was something David enjoyed first for his life to be used like this way.

He held onto the covenant that God chose him, loved him, and will use him and enjoyed it. 

Romans 5:1 says, “Therefore since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” To “have (enjoy)” means that hold it precious, give thanks, and be happy.

God gave His Son’s life because He loves me. Within that, He saved me and made me His child. 

It is rightful that my whole heart goes to Him now that I know His love. When you meet the person you love, is enjoying your love for each other work and suffering? This is why David repeatedly confessed in Psalms, “I give thanks to God, I only love God, and only look upon God.”

This is where the skill summit and cultural summit follows. The works I do become a masterpiece and creates works that change the flow.  

In Psalms 78:70-72, it says that David’s heart was faithful and everything he did with his hands was blessed.


  1. David enjoyed the most important blessing among all the blessings he received from God. It is the blessing of spiritual victory.

David’s whole life was a blessing of a victor. God desired to use David, so who would be offended or angry the most? Who was it that brought unjust persecution or temptation to make him fall? God led David into victory amidst all these circumstances and raised him as the spiritual summit who will save the world.

1) Evil spirits who worked upon King Saul knew ahead and fled when David played his instrument before him (1 Samuel 16:23).

If we truly know Christ and enjoy Him, the devil will know this first and flee. Later on, summits who have high status on the outside but are struggling internally will come to you (1 Samuel 16:22).

2) The fight with Goliath from the passage is a model that shows us the spiritual victory we will enjoy in our field (academia, workplace, world).

Unbelievers and those who do evil may have more possessions, much power, money, and status and mock us. David was not discouraged or frustrated by that. King Saul and others did. What was different about David?

He went forth with the authority of the Lord’s name (verse 45). It is the assurance of the power of the throne.  

This is what it means for Christ to have all the authority of heaven and earth (Matthew 28:18). Try to do everything with the authority of the Lord’s name (when praying, before problems, doing important work). He will work because you are doing it in His name, and Satan who interrupts will have no choice but to crumble.

He went forth with the assurance that God will give Goliath into his hands (verse 46). It is the assurance of victory.

It cannot be done with my strength. However, the power that transcends time and space will take place if God allows it and works. Restore this faith and enjoy it. No trials or problems that come will matter (1 Corinthians 10:13, 15:57, Romans 16:20).

He said that all the earth and all those gathered will see that the Lord saves (verse 47). It is the assurance of evangelism and mission.

It is the faith that God will work because He will reveal His glory through me and save all 237 nations. To what extent did David hold onto God’s desire for evangelism, mission, and the 237 nations? His prayer and vision in his most difficult moments were this (Psalms 57:9-11 “I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations.”) This is the reason for the authority of the throne and the power that transcends time and space to take place. Hold onto the covenant of spiritual victory and be triumphant in the spiritual battle. There were times of failure for David. God gave him Solomon when he repented and started anew and relays that blessing (2 Samuel 12:1-25).


  1. It was God’s method to train David.

1) It was the training through his father, Jesse. We must know the importance of discipline through parents.

Joseph received the absolute influence of his father Jacob (Genesis 37:11, 45:28). Samuel received absolute support from his mother Hannah. This was why the king asked David, “Whose son are you?” after David brought down Goliath (1 Samuel 17:58). It’s okay even if only one of the parents holds onto the covenant and prays. Wisdom to how to raise a child will come. The reason David came to the battlefield was because of his father Jesse’s errand (1 Samuel 17:17-18). That was God’s plan. Jesse is the grandson of Ruth who only looked upon God and held onto the covenant at a place where she had lost everything (Ruth 4:17).

2) It was the training through the Lord’s servant, Samuel. This is why the role of the Lord’s servants and church officers in the church are important.

Samuel gave worship in Jesse’s house and anointed David. The works of the Holy Spirit was upon David from that moment (1 Samuel 16:13). From then on, Samuel became David’s spiritual mentor and prayer supporter. Remnants, make it so that my parents, church officers, and the Lord’s servants will have no choice but to pray for me (Isaiah 62:6-7).


Conclusion – May you stand as the true spiritual summit who enjoys spiritual victory in this world that is filled with darkness in these last days.
