Doing Battle with Goliath

This week, my devotional assignment on vision, comes from 1 Samuel 17: 26 & 27. in regard to David and Goliath. I have yet to figure out how to write that, but in thinking about them:

I came to realize that Goliaths are in our lives all the time. Sometimes they are quiet and the SON shines in such a way that we don't see the shadows. We go on about our lives without much thought of them. At other times they are huge and noisey and the shadows overtake us, lying over our lives in darkness. It is at those times when we must work to get out of the shadows, taking a leap of faith into the Sonlight. We need to look for God in those times. We need to do battle with our Goliath, not in our own strength, but using the strength provided by God. One of those strengths, no matter how week it "feels", is TRUST. Another is surrender to the knowledge that God never fails us. No matter where we are, no matter what our circumstances, God knows best where to take us, and how to take us through
to work things out for our BEST and for HIS glory!

Do battle with your current Goliath, and don't shiver in your shoes. Stand tall, stand firm in your faith, and walk in complete surrender to the Lord. He will bring about your victory!
