David was small when he hurled a stone toward Goliath. Many believe he was approximately 14 years of age, but David was fierce. He was was a mighty person of faith. He was able to see what others could not see. When he saw the king of Israel cowering and waiting for a champion he grew upset, after all the champion should have been the king. No one was able to defeat Goliath, because they were afraid of Goliath.
Often we have situations in our lives that we do not believe can ever be accomplished. We look to someone or something to help us out. When we have money issues we look to jobs for raises or to others for assistance. David was not this type of leader, he was a bold and seemingly fearless leader. He accomplished what he set out to do, becauase he trusted in God Almighty to lead him through.
In our own situations, whenever we face an obstacle that is seemingly our Goliath, we can place our confidence in God’s ability to be our source. Do not let the situations surround you and cause a mentality of defeat. The Word of God specifically states time-and-time-again that God will be on our side. In fact one of my favorite verses is “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble” (Psalms 46:1, NIV).
