Why do people still deny the power of His name? God is not silent, nor has He hidden from us. All you have to do is look up in the sky, or watch a storm roll in, to see His power at work. Goliath was relying on his own strength, and couldn't look beyond himself to see what God was about to do.
1st Samuel 17:42-43
And when the Philistine looked about and saw David, he disdained him; for he was only a youth, ruddy and good-looking. So the Philistine said to David, "Am I a dog, that you come to me with sticks?" And the Philistine cursed David by his gods.
Things aren't always as they appear. David may have been small, but his faith was great. If we just look at things on the surface, we will often times miss the treasure that is hidden inside. A package may have a plain brown wrapper, but it's what's inside the package that counts.
