February 29, 2024

Everyone knows the story of David and Goliath. A young man goes against a gnarly giant, the Philistine army’s hero, killing him with a sling and a stone, using the giant’s own sword to cut off his head, and even up the odds for the army of Israel to defeat them and take their spoil. This story is often told as an encouragement for us to forge ahead in our battles and remain fearless. My summation is no different, except that I’m highlighting a verse that should stay on our minds when facing our giants.

And David spake to the men that stood by him, saying, What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine, and taketh away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God? 1 Samuel 17:26

David came in with both barrels blazing on behalf of God as if he needed to defend His character against this evil force. Remember, anyone who is not for us is against us. David was fearless and full of the Holy Spirit because he knew God was with him and would give him the ability to defeat His enemy. Why are you trembling in your battles? Will God not give you the capability to defeat your enemy, which is also an enemy of God, as He did David? Make sure you are prayed up, confessing and repenting of any sin; then you can go confidently into battle and win, giving all the glory to God!
