1 Samuel 17:34-36
 But David said to Saul, “Your servant was tending his father’s sheep. When a lion or a bear came and took a lamb from the flock,  I went out after him and attacked him, and rescued it from his mouth; and when he rose up against me, I seized him by his beard and struck him and killed him.  Your servant has killed both the lion and the bear; and this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, since he has taunted the armies of the living God.”

Revelations 12:11
They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.

It might've looked like David was just tending the flock, but really he was being prepared for battle!  When he went to talk to Saul he had already faced a lion and a bear, and won!  He knew that with God, Goliath didn't stand a chance.  He had his testimony.  He saw the faithfulness of God.  He said to Saul, "When a lion or a bear came and took a lamb from the flock, I went out after him and attacked him, and rescued it from his mouth".  David then went on to say, "and this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them".  
Saul couldn't talk David out of it.  David had seen the faithfulness of God, he knew God was on his side! 
Our testimony is a powerful force!  
David not only took down Goliath, but he charged at him fearlessly.  He knew he had the victory! 
Whatever you are facing, charge at it knowing you have the victory!  You are a child of God.  You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood!  Look and see how faithful your Father has been to you, and know He will ALWAYS be with you and He will ALWAYS be faithful to you!  His plans for you are HUGE and AWESOME!  That uncircumcised Philistine might have looked big, but he didn't stand a chance against a child of God who knew his identity! 
You are victorious.  Take your testimony and face Goliath fearlessly.

Blessings,
