One of the most famous chidren's stories from the Bible is the story of David and Goliath. The most remarkable part of this story is that it's true. God proves through David that with faith and righteous indignation associated with the holiness of God, anything can be accomplished.

1 Samuel 17:48-51a New King James Version (NKJV)

48 So it was, when the Philistine arose and came and drew near to meet David, that David hurried and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine. 49 Then David put his hand in his bag and took out a stone; and he slung it and struck the Philistine in his forehead, so that the stone sank into his forehead, and he fell on his face to the earth.50 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone, and struck the Philistine and killed him. But there was no sword in the hand of David. 51 Therefore David ran and stood over the Philistine, took his sword and drew it out of its sheath and killed him, and cut off his head with it."
