Facing Giants

What's On My Heart Today... "Facing Giants"

"God did not give us a spirit that makes us afraid but a spirit of power and love and self-control.” 2 Timothy 1:7

The noblest characters the world knows are those who have been trained on the battlefield. David knew this well! When he was facing impossible odds, it was his faith in God that won the battle. Strength is born in long-suffering hearts, because they have known the desperate need for God's help. What David learned was to keep focused on the goodness of God. When we allow ourselves to focus on ourselves we begin to doubt God. The next time you are facing impossible odds, be willing to accept that it is God's will no matter what happens? Remember, all giants aren’t obstacles…some are opportunities. Today, God would say to you...

"The Lord gives His people strength; the Lord blesses His people with peace." Psalm 29:11
