David told the Philistine, “You come to me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come to you in the name of the LORD of Armies, the God of the army of Israel, whom you have insulted. – 1 Samuel 17:45 (GW)
A lot of the time when we are up against a situation that seems huge, we look around and see all the reasons why we can’t. Maybe we think that we’re not smart enough, not equipped enough, or don’t have enough money. What we see is our limitation. We see where we don’t measure up and all of our weaknesses.
In the Bible, the army of God was faced with a situation that seemed way bigger than them. They felt too small and unequipped to handle the giant Goliath and his fighting skills. The neat thing about this story is how David viewed the situation. Where everyone in the army of God saw lack and limitation, David saw an opportunity for God’s strength.
In the story of David and Goliath, David chooses to side with God. He trusts that God was going to fight for Him. And because of David’s choice to see possibility instead of limitation, he saw God come through for Him in a major way and win the battle.
You might be facing a situation or problem that seems huge. But today, be encouraged. Just like David, you’ve got a God who loves you and who is fighting on your side. Choose to see your problems as opportunities to see God move in your life.
