"For the battle is the LORD’s, and he will give you into our hand", (1 Samuel 17:47).
Yes, that's what David said before he decided he was going to face his giant (Goliath). What David meant when he said those words, was that he didn't have much to worry about, because he knew the Lord God was with him in taking down this problem, this giant. He knew it was his battle to win. He was cool, he was calm, and he was collected about it. He knew who he was. Confident, assured, doing his thing.
Many times winners just know they're going to win. It's just something about their attitude, based on all their training and preparation. It's not conceit, cockiness or arrogance. It's a quiet confidence -- they simply know.
I'll never forget season three of America's Next Top Model when Eva Pigford walked in and strutted towards the judges. She clearly exuded confidence, it was memorable. Typically the models stood somewhere around 5'10" and over. Yet Eva was only about 5'7". What made her stand out among the competition? When she walked in, she walked in like, 'let's go, I'm winning this thing, I'm the next top model, and I'm here to kick butt and take names.' Needless to say, the 5'7" firecracker won. She defied the odds. And she just knew before she walked in, that she was going to win, and she feared no one.
Same thing with David.
