Everybody knows the Biblical story of David VS Goliath. The army of Israel, was being defied by goliath and all the men were fearful to fight against this mighty men of war.
However a little boy called David said to King Saul: Then David said to Saul, “Let no man’s heart fail because of him; your servant will go and fight with this philistine.” I Samuel 17:32-33
Now pay attention in the reply of King Saul: “And Saul said to David, “You are not able to go against this philistine to fight with him; for you are a young youth, and he a man of war from his youth.”
We can see that people pay more attention to the outwardly conditions rather then the power that lies inside.
- You aren’t able
- You are week
- You haven’t got what it takes
- It’s to hard
- It’s impossible
These are the words of defeat, negativity and above all lack of faith.
“So Saul clothed David with his armor, and he put a bronze helmet on his head; he also clothed him with a coat of mail. David fastened his sword to his armor and tried to walk, for he had not tested them.(…)”
Saul didn’t believe that David could overcome without his help and his armor!…In other words: “You can go but you will need this!…”
Isn’t that what people say: You need to have this or that, otherwise…..you just can’t!.. David quickly realized, that not only he couldn’t walk with it but he didn’t needed the armor to overcome the Giant!…His best Weapon was inside!…
“(…)So David took them off.” – He believed that God would back him up, and deliver him in to his hand.
In a nutshell:
- Do not depend on outwardly circumstances.
- Don’t allow your emotions or feelings to deceive you.
- Use what you have inside as your best tool.
- Be bold and courageous.
- Depend on God and He will back you up.
