Just a young boy, David aimed his rock-like faith at Goliath’s head, knowing He had God on his side. Those little rocks were just little rocks, but his faith was as big as his mightiest of rocks, His God. Why don’t we do more throwing of our faith-like rocks at our giants? In the name of the Lord we can defeat our “Goliaths”, the things that come from the enemy to frighten us!
When the enemy shows up and tells us we are doomed or weak or inconsequential, let’s tell him about our faith. We know we can defeat him because we have the One who already defeated him, on our side! Remember, Satan is a liar and will make you think you are smaller and weaker than you are. But…God, our friend, can only tell you the truth and He says anything is possible with faith. He also says we can do amazing things with Him. Try these encouraging verses on for size!
Philippians 4:13…I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Ephesians 3: 20-21…Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
Matthew 17:20…He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”
Can you hear and feel David’s huge faith in these words below? If a little boy can do this, so can we. All it takes is a little faith in a big God!
David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel which you have defied.” 1Samuel 17: 45-46 NIV
I can see myself saying this from now on, when I have a problem. 🙂 Can you?
Aim your faith in God at the very thing that would scare most people and watch that giant fall!
Have a wonderful day in the Lord, being strong with His might!
