Spiritual weapons of mass destruction
Those who live through the eyes of people they seek approval from, in crux are rejecting God, who made them to be and His destiny for why they were born. King Saul wanted David to fight Goliath through the eyes of his experiences in warfare. He offered David three things. 1) armor for his head, 2) armor for his body, and 3) a sword for fighting Goliath (I Samuel 17:38-39).
David felt uncomfortable using Saul’s armor and decided to only confront Goliath with a slingshot. He told Saul his weapons were not proven. David’s slingshot was symbolic of his prayer life on a backside of a mountain. It symbolized brokenness from his brethren and total dependency on God for fighting all of his battles. David’s slingshot was a proven weapon when he killed a lion and bear by himself. David’s weapon was also a harp he played that produced love affair with God. So his slingshot and harp reminded him of proven weapons God provided him for a love relationship between him and God in prayer. David’s slingshot and harp became weapons of mass destruction for his enemies for years to come. David had to learn to use these weapons through his private and personal devotions with God. He had to deal with the deck of cards God dealt him because he grew up around family rejection.
