David's First Goliath by Jay Bryant Ward
About this Image:
"David said, The LORD that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine." -1 Samuel 17:37
Admittedly, This painting began as a personal piece, but has grown to be a favorite of many with many interpretations, including Daniel and the Lion’s Den, symbolisms of Narnia, and others. I’ve always wanted to paint a ‘David and Goliath’, but as I was studying the verses, it struck me how David was so very confident by the time he confronted Goliath. I realized that the Lord had already prepared him. Where did the real challenge occur and when was his faith truly tested? Alone, and without all the fanfare. Just himself, a lion, and the Lord. I feel that’s how most of us face our Goliaths…
