TOBI Says, What about David and Go­liath?

Calhoun Times - - RELIGION - TOBI Says

The story of David and Go­liath is one of the most fa­mous sto­ries in the Bi­ble. It, like the many other sto­ries, are to teach Chris­tians to learn to trust God in any sit­u­a­tion they face.

When David heard the chal­lenge from Go­liath, he was not afraid. His child­like faith ex­pected God to give the vic­tory. Ev­i­dently his par­ents had taught him to trust God and to do the right thing at every op­por­tu­nity. Re­mem­ber how God had used him to kill a bear and a lion to pro­tect his sheep.

King Saul had stopped fol­low­ing God and be­gan de­pend­ing on his own strength. He was afraid of the gi­ant. The sol­diers fol­low­ing their leader were also afraid of the gi­ant.

David went out to face the gi­ant and God gave him the vic­tory. Then the army fol­lowed David’s lead­er­ship and went and con­quered the Philis­tine army.

You will face gi­ants in your life. It will prob­a­bly not be a ten foot gi­ant. It may be a bully or you may be tempted to cheat or some­thing else will make you mad. The chal­lenge you face will give you the op­por­tu­nity to see God at work in your life.

God is big enough to han­dle any prob­lem that you will face. He loves you and wants you to fol­low Him. He wants you to have vic­tory in your life.

You will not al­ways win, but He will al­ways be with you in any sit­u­a­tion that you face. He wants you to learn to trust Him just as David did. Then you will see God de­feat your Go­liath.
