He took his staff in his hand and chose for himself FIVE smooth stones out of the brook.
1 Samuel 17:40 MEV
Have you ever thought or wondered why the shepherd boy David during his confrontation with the giant Philistine champion chose 5 smooth stones? Why 5 stones? Why not 7, or 3 or just 1?
Here is what I believe from my understanding from the Word of God;
“… but I come to you in the name of the Lord of Hosts…”
1 Samuel 17:45 MEV
He did not fight with his own strength but he allowed the Lord to fight for him.
Concerning Pharaoh and the Egyptians God says,
“So I will stretch out My HAND and strike Egypt with all My wonders which I will perform in its midst.”
Exodus 3:20 NKJV
And God says again and many other several times,
“It shall be when your son asks you in time to come, saying, ‘What is this?’ that you shall say to him, ‘With a strong HAND the Lord brought us out from Egypt, from the house of bondage.
Exodus 13:14 MEV
Now hear what the Lord Jesus says,
“But if I cast out demons with the FINGER of God, no doubt the kingdom of God has come upon you.”
Luke 11:20 MEV
Here’s the analogy: A hand has 5 fingers. The 5 stones represented the Hand of God which David relied on to strike Goliath.
Interestingly, David only used 1 stone instead of 5. God didn’t need to use His Hand on Goliath, just a finger (one stone out of 5) was enough to swallow the champion enemy.
The ‘champion’ problem you have may seem great in your eyes but it’s nothing before the Lord our God. Just His Almighty Finger (1 stone) is enough to deliver you.
