Live Like David

We all know the story. Giant taunts army. No one is brave enough to fight giant. Young boy says he'll do it. He does. David and Goliath. A story we all know and love. However, David and Goliath didn’t make sense. Yes, David should have been crushed, giving Goliath the victory. But on paper, David should have never taken on the giant. When you look at the size difference, the age difference, and the vast difference their experience, David shouldn't have even went considered the fight. But he did.

The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw
of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.
1 Samuel 17:37

David not only had faith that God would protect him, he also had confidence and boldness in God. He didn't fearfully or timidly go to Goliath. He went bravely knowing what he had to do and Who was with him.

We need to live like David. We need to trust that the Lord who saved us and who has rescued us time and time again will be there. What we are facing may not make any sense on paper. It might be seem so far fetched in our human mind, but the Lord's thoughts are not our thoughts.

"For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
and your ways are not My ways."
This is the Lord's declaration.
Isaiah 55:8

Let's be women who live like David. Who boldly and  bravely face our giants. Who fight with confidence in the Lord.

It's time for Share A Link Wednesday! Each Wednesday we invite you to leave a link to your latest blog post in the comments. We still desire to connect women of God with one another and encourage each other in Christ. So grab a cup of coffee or glass of sweet tea, sit back and visit a few blogs. Be encouraged and share your own stories.

  3. Too often I look at the circumstances, at my inadequacies, at all the problems instead of looking at the One who can overcome them all. I do indeed need to be more like David.

    My latest post resulted from a study of Christ being lifted up for us and our lifting up souls, voices, and hearts to Him:

  4. So grateful for Jesus, my true Champion, who flings stones of righteousness at the head of our enemy!

  6. Oh Jennifer, I want to be a woman who lves like David. I want to always remember that I have God's protection. However, the enemy likes to remind me how big and bad my struggles are. I just need to remind myself that my God is bigger and mightier than any struggle I face. My post this week is about pouring Jesus into your family,
