David shouted in reply, “You come to me with a sword and a spear, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of the armies of heaven and of Israel … Today the Lord will conquer you.”
1 Samuel 17:45-46 TLB
I was stressed to the max, over-analyzing the problem and worrying
about it as if it were all up to me to fix it.
When will I ever learn? I asked myself for the umpteenth time.
What it comes down to is our perception of God. How big is He? Is He ready, willing, and more than able to handle our problems?
The answer is a resounding YES!
John Ortberg says:
When we make the mistake of shrinking God, we offer prayer without faith, work without passion, service without joy, and suffering without hope—which results in fear, retreat, loss of vision, and failure to persevere.
David was a small shepherd boy who looked past Goliath’s size. He knew his God was bigger than any giant he would ever encounter. David also knew the battle belonged to the Lord.
No matter what you’re going through, the next time a giant steps in your path, call on the Lord and let Him fight the battle. The good news is He never fails.
And He’s way bigger than the giant standing in your way.
