FACE-OFF WITH A GIANT

GOLIATH:

I’m ready for a major battle, 
and they have sent me this play toy.
I was looking forward to a challenge,
but I’m facing a mere boy.

What can they possibly be thinking, 
sending in a boy like you?
Don’t they know one of your size,
I can trample with one shoe?

DAVID:

What are you thinking, giant,
as I fondle this stone?
You are probably convinced 
that I am acting alone.

But there is actually One 
who is standing beside me.
A formidable adversary 
who you simply cannot see.

He is my moral support, 
and He steadies my hand.
And He knows the exact spot 
where my stone must land.

You can't know the awesome power 
of this entity you face,
Who will cut you down to my size, 
and leave your memory in disgrace.

For He is the God of everything, 
and He is also mine.
The hand that holds this stone 
will be guided by the divine.

As my stone finds its target, 
you succumb without a sound.
And the earth beneath you trembles, 
as your body hits the ground.

I had the element of surprise, 
as you simply could not see,
the invisible enemy you were fighting 
was actually God instead of me.
