David | Goliath | God

Having done a study on David and Goliath I felt the need to paint what I had learnt.  The blurb is what I displayed with the artwork followed by a few Bible verses...
David was tiny and insignificant, as we may sometimes feel. 
Goliath represents our problems and fears which can look enormous and far too big to tackle.
God is enormous, loving, giving, colourful, amazing… you can’t actually put God into words.  What we do know is that God is much bigger than our problems and is always on our side. 
A rainbow reminds us of God’s promises to us; it is a symbol of hope and is absolutely awesome, just like God.
As I painted this picture I saw David as the small pale rectangle; Goliath, twice David’s size, as the bronze rectangle and God depicted as a rainbow, so much bigger.
1 Samuel chapter 17 verses 4-7
“The Philistine army had a hero named Goliath who was from the town of Gath and was over nine feet tall. He wore a bronze helmet and had bronze armour to protect his chest and legs. The chest armour alone weighed about one hundred and twenty-five pounds. He carried a bronze sword strapped on his back, and his spear was so big that the iron spearhead alone weighed more than fifteen pounds. A soldier always walked in front of Goliath to carry his shield.”
1 Samuel chapter 17 verses 40-42
“David picked up his shepherd's stick. He went out to a stream and picked up five smooth rocks and put them in his leather bag. Then with his sling in his hand, he went straight toward Goliath.  Goliath came toward David, walking behind the soldier who was carrying his shield. When Goliath saw that David was just a healthy, good-looking boy, he made fun of him.”
Genesis chapter 9 verse 16 
“When I see the rainbow in the sky, I will always remember the promise that I have made to every living creature.”
