Weird: Religion – Day 4 of 5
Everybody knows the story of David and Goliath. Goliath, a huge warrior mocks God’s chosen people, and the soldiers of Israel were terrified to stand in his presence. But David, a young shepherd with no military experience, is willing to stand in battle against Goliath. David had seen and heard Goliath mock the armies of the living God, and David responds to Goliath, boldly declaring that God will defeat him. When the battle was over, the men of Israel overtook the Philistine army. It was a battle they should not have won. But David’s trust in God carried them to victory.
Read: 1 Samuel 17
Question to consider: Many times we move out into life thinking we cannot truly overcome the situations before us. But the story of David and Goliath reminds us that trusting God can and will lead to victory. Are you trusting God to help you overcome the challenges you’re facing today?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I acknowledge that far too often I trust myself, instead of fully putting my trust in You. Today I want to again confess my sins of _____________________. While these sins sometimes overwhelm me, I know that by bringing them to You and entrusting them with You, they will no longer overwhelm me, but may instead be used by You to help me become the person You have made me to be. And this is my prayer today, that You will continue to show me the person You have made me to be. Amen.
