I love the story of David Vs. Goliath. It helps illustrate how nothing is to big for our God. Imagine what would be going through your mind if you came up to battle against one of Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s, Sylvester Stallone‘s, or any famous movie hero/villain. The odds are completely against you. What I love about David is that he didn’t care. His reaction was “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(v.37).” David has complete confidence in the Lord. During this time David was not a warrior. All David was, was a Shepard and a musician. By mans view, he does not have the qualifications to beat Goliath. In fact his bothers and his king were urging him to go back home because he does not belong there, they were afraid for him. David insisted though. He knew the Lord had his back. Finally David won the argument with king and went to battle against Goliath. The only thing David has in the battle was the clothes on his back and a slingshot. Goliath however was fully armored and had a sword that was the size of David. The odds definitely seemed packed against David, but that does not fear him. As soon as the battle started Goliath ran at David full force with his sword pulled and ready to slice David. David however pulled his sling out and in just one shot he nailed Goliath in the forehead and killed him. Just like that Goliath is dead. Goliath, the champion warrior known for his skills in the battlefield, died within 30 seconds of this battle to the little boy David.
I wish I had the faith and trust David did. He very much knew how the situation seemed to human odds, but he also knew he had God on his side and nothing is to big for our God. I love how God can use the must unexpected people to do His biggest tasks. Over and over again in the bible, we see God choosing what seems to be the wrong people, our our eyes, to do His tasks. We can never underestimate our God. This is the God who created the universe and everything in it, there is nothing to big or challenging to Him. All He asks is that we trust in Him, give our problems to Him and He will take care of the rest. My good friend just blogged Stop Everything. We just need to be still and trust in the Lord with complete confidence like David did.
