Facing the Giants

So David triumphed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone; without a sword in his hand he struck down the Philistine and killed him.  When the Philistines saw that their hero was dead, they turned and ran. -1 Samuel 17:50-51

The victory does not always go to the strongest and it is not always the most powerful that wins.  Looks can be deceiving. We often see giants in our path that scare us, deter us, or defeat us without a fight.  Unless we face the Goliaths in our lives, real or imagined, we can never move on or feel empowered to overcome the next monster that appears.

David used just a stone, not a sword, to slay the enemy; a common rock that was well known to his hand. It had no power of its own, but it was tool that had seen much practice and was guided by God. With that combination, there is no giant that will not fall.  When one is defeated, they all run away.

What is in your hand? Stop, turn, smile and use what God provides to erase every obstacle that stands in your way. The victory is yours.
