Facing the Giants

th-9

1 Samuel 17

Many people know the story of David and Goliath; the general theme of the story has been used in countless illustrations and movies. Coaches have used the story to encourage their teams, and we have probably all heard stories of people who have overcome tremendous obstacles to achieve success.

As you reflect on this portion of scripture, remember that God has a plan for you! He is calling you to make a stand for Him. When you have the Lord, you have nothing to fear. David was just a teenager when he faced Goliath. Goliath was a giant among men, a seasoned warrior who struck fear in those that faced him. But David had boldness because he had seen the Lord work in his life on many occasions previously. He KNEW that God would be with him and would give him the victory… that is why he was able to look at Goliath and say “You come to me with a sword, spear, and shield; but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel… and this day will the Lord deliver you into my hand…”  David wore no armor, he had no shield or sword… he had a sling and some stones… but most importantly, he had the God of all creation with him.

If you are facing giants today, remember that the Lord is with you. If you cling to Him, He will never leave you, nor forsake you. His ways are not our ways, but His plan is ALWAYS perfect and will provide all that you have need of. Be blessed, be at peace, and have a great week!
