1 Samuel 17:48-50
- And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose, and came, and drew nigh to meet David, that David hastened, and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine.
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.
So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David.
Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men. Proverbs 22:29

Israel was terrorized by the Philistines for 40 days. Goliath, the head of the enemy had vowed that if he killed the representative of the Israelites, they would become slaves to the Philistines. When David came on the scene, he became infuriated by Goliaths words, especially because he mocked the name of the Lord, so he volunteered to engage him in battle.
David didnt find it easy with his goal of killing Goliath. First, Eliab, his elder
brother rebuked him for being nosy in areas where even elders feared to tread. Second, King Saul tried to discourage him and later gave him an armour he was not used to. Third, Goliath himself felt insulted that a small boy came to fight him with a catapult and stones.
However, against all odds, David stood before Goliath fearlessly and won.My child, if you must reach your goal, you must carefully select who and what to listen to. Stay away from those who talk down or rubbish your goals, rather, stick with people who will encourage you.
Also, like David, stay focused, confront any challenge fearlessly and never forget to rely on God. With Him on your side, you will reach your goal.
Father, please let nothing stop me from reaching the goal Youve set for my life, in Jesus name.
