Life isn’t always easy. Challenges come each day. And at times those challenges might seem like more than you can face on your own.
There’s good news. You don’t have to face them alone. Like David, you can rely on the Lord. You might be facing a giant that seems just too big. And it might be true that the giant is too big for you and for what you can do in your strength, but there’s hope. You’re not fighting alone. You’ve got God on your side and He goes to battle for you.
This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head. This very day I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds and the wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel. 47 All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.” – 1 Samuel 17:46-47 (NIV)
All throughout the Bible, we see God fighting for people. Time and time again, humanity comes up short. But thank God, He didn’t leave us alone. Throughout time, God has been coming to our rescue. Even when we don’t deserve it, He comes and helps us in our weaknesses.
So if the thing that you face today is bigger than yourself, that’s ok. Often your problems will be bigger than what you can handle. But they’re not bigger than your God. God has come to the rescue of His people time and time again. And He wants to help you too.
Don’t give up. Don’t let yourself be discouraged. God is fighting on your side. From creation to Jesus, that’s the love story shown throughout the Bible. God keeps fighting for humanity. That’s the good news about Christmas!
