David and Goliath for Little Kids

This map shows where the story of David and Goliath took place when David was a young shepherd!

During the time when the story of David and Goliath took place there was a war between the Philistines and the Israelites. The two armies set up their camps between the cities of Sokoh and Azekah. The Bible says there was a Philistine warrior named Goliath that was over 9 feet tall! For forty days, every morning and night he came out of his camp and challenged the Israelites. Goliath said he would fight anyone from the Israelite camp one-on-one and the battle between them would decide who won the war!

When the Israelites heard Goliath they became very afraid, even King Saul was scared! But when David came to the camp and heard Goliath he completely trusted in God and was not afraid. David told King Saul that he would fight Goliath and that God would protect him. David went to a nearby stream and grabbed five smooth stones that he could use in his sling when he fought the giant.

Goliath laughed when he saw David because he was a young boy, not a warrior like him. David told the Philistines that God was with him and no weapon is any match for Almighty God. David and Goliath ran to fight each other; David grabbed one of the smooth stones from the stream and slung it hitting Goliath right in the forehead!

David beat Goliath with a sling and a stone and when the Philistines saw what happened they were so frightened that they ran away. God had a big plan for David, eventually he became the King of Israel! Have faith in God and stand up for Him like David did so God may use you in amazing ways too.

1 Samuel 17:37 - David said moreover, The LORD that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said unto David, Go, and the LORD be with thee.

1 Samuel 17:49 - And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth.

The study of David and Goliath is very important in the study of the Bible, let's pray:

Dear Jesus, we thank you that no matter how big our enemy is you are bigger and stronger. If we trust in you we will be in the best possible place. Help us to trust you. Help us to see the giants that come into our lives and help us defeat them by your strength. Help us to trust your promises and to be thankful for your mercy. We love you. In Jesus name... Amen!
