Trials don't come to take what you have, they come to supply what you lack
David was a young Shepard boy, the youngest son of Jesse. One day, Israel was challenged to war by the Philistines. Meanwhile, David visited his brothers in battle every so often to bring back news for their father.
A great Philistine giant named Goliath, who stood to be over nine feet tall challenged the Israelites everyday for 40 days straight to fight him. The Israelites and Saul trembled with fear and did nothing.
Now one day as David came to check on his brothers, he heard Goliath mocking the Israelites and their God. This didn’t settle too well with David. Because none of the other Israelites volunteered to fight Goliath, David persuaded Saul into letting him on the battlefield. When the giant saw David he laughed and disdained him.
The only thing David came with was his sling and five stones, but the most important thing he came with was the Name of Jesus (1 Samuel 17:45). David put a rock in his sling and slung it right into Goliath’s forehead, and the giant fell head backwards. The Israelites cheered in victory as the philistines ran with fear. The Israelites won all because of a young Shepard boy who had such a strong faith in God and stood on the fact that all things are possible to those who believe! (Mark 9:23)
This story is such a great reminder that we are never too young, or too unworthy for God to do great and mighty things through us. Whenever we walk into a Goliath in our lives, we can call on to God to deliver us from our battles and give us courage to overcome the enemy, just like David.
"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." — Isaiah 41:10
