This week we are studying “Facing Our Giants”, and we have had a power-packed Chapter with precious tools to help us learn how to face things like poor attitude, poor health, situations with family members, our own sin, and many more! These are our “Goliaths” or “Giants”. God DOES provide what we need to face these Goliaths just as He gave David the strength to kill the giant Goliath. His only requirement is to believe Him, to have faith.
If you aren’t familiar, in the Old Testament of The Bible, God’s people, the Israelites, where being threatened into slavery if they couldn’t defeat this very large “Giant” named Goliath. David, as a young boy was the ONLY one of all the Israelite Army, including the King, that KNEW God was with him and that He could have this great defeat over Goliath with God on his side. All of Israelites were cowering in fear. They had lost faith in God and instead of calling out to Him, they ran terrified in fear. Can you relate? I know I can. However, now, I do run to Him first. I heard a friend once say, “If you are experiencing a problem or stress, pain, anything, run to the “throne” not the phone.” In other words, we have learned in this study that God wants to be our “First Responder” in our troubles, fears, insecurities, etc. He wants to call on Him, not our friends, spouses, anyone else before we come to Him. I don’t know about you but it is a grand promise from God and I take Him up on allowing Him to be my First Responder. There is no one else better!
