The Story of David vs. Goliath

February 2008

1 Samuel 17:32-33 “let no one lose heart” 37, 40-51

Update on “Two Down...Two to Go” Legal Issues


            A story for a time such as this. This begins in 2001, when a young 31-year-old woman almost dies from a botched abortion at the Hope Clinic for Women. Safe and legal you say? Over three-thousand women have died since abortion was legalized in 1973, and hundreds of thousands injured or maimed through safe, legal abortions!


          We had already been helping abortion-bound women outside Hope Clinic for seven years when this happened. But now the mighty Goliaths (Hope Clinic for Women and attorney Mark Levy) were going to destroy the little Davids that had cost them one million dollars in business. Ephesians 5:11 “Have nothing to do with fruitless deeds of darkness, rather expose them.”


          The Goliaths filed a slanderous lawsuit against the Davids and from then on, continued to file other frivolous lawsuits, use the local police to intimidate and harass, and even be so bold to say, “I’ll take their inheritance and every penny they have,” to defeat the Davids. Sure, it would have been much easier to stay home and not show up for the battle, or we could have chosen to be like David’s army crouching down in the ditches with our knees knocking. “You cannot go against this Philistine and fight with him, for you are only a youth, while he has been a warrior from his youth.” 1 Samuel 17:33.


          There is one thing awfully important that the Goliaths didn’t know. That’s when you stand for truth and righteousness like David did, your God and Savior J-E-S-U-S will deliver you from the hand of your enemies. “The Lord who delivered me from the claws of the lion and the bear, will also keep me safe from the clutches of this Philistine.” 1 Samuel 17:37. And just like the Bible story, God was with us. “You come against me with sword and spear and scimitar, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty.” 1 Samuel 17:45. After seven lawsuits, much slander and persecution, blood, sweat, and tears, the Kings of Kings trounced the Goliaths, using the little Davids. After a seven year battle, “multitudes have learned that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves...  For the battle is the Lord’s and He shall deliver you into our hands.” 1 Samuel 17:47.


          Not only did He deliver us from the Lion’s den and grant us favor in the courts, but He gave us a platform to continue to save babies, help women, stand for righteousness, and speak the truth. God also blessed us with a new addition to our family, a beautiful baby daughter.   


          Pray for us, as we have one last battle to fight, and remember that Jesus is Lord and His laws reign! Psalm 144, “Blessed be the Lord, my Rock, who trains my hands for battle, my fingers for war. He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold, my deliverer, my shield in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me.”
