MISMATCH

This sculpture is about accepting the challenges for which God has uniquely prepared us. David is displaying an attitude of confident humility having set aside the massive armor and weapons provided by King Saul - in favor of his already tested sling and stone.  God had faithfully delivered him from the jaws of lions and bear in the past. 

His look of absolute resolution, determination, and courage could be mistaken for fleshly bravado, but his lips tell a different story -

…the Lord does not deliver by sword or by spear;
for the battle is the Lord’s. 1 Samuel 17:47

Goliath was hopelessly mismatched and had no chance for victory against an obedient saint.  The spirit of the Lord came mightily upon David because he was a man ‘after God’s own heart’.
