David and Goliath from the 21st-Century Perspective
Anything that’s trying to hinder you from going to where God is trying to take you is a GIANT, this plan was written to encourage you and let you know that no matter what GIANT you’re facing, as a believer in Jesus Christ you have in your possession the AUTHORITY and POWER to defeat it. Nothing has ever been created that can destroy the Kingdom of God within you.
The life of faith is full of challenges, difficulties, and trials. But there are also times of victory, but no matter what challenges we face all VICTORIES will come from the Lord. Don’t think for a second that God’s victories are limited to Joshua or others in the bible. He also won a battle for you. On the cross, Jesus cried out, “It is finished.” Not “will be” but “is.” With his last breath, the strife was over and the battle was won. Singlehandedly, the Lord achieved victory, therefore we can direct ever victor from this point forward toward Jesus because he’s the one that did it.
“It’s never easy when we face difficulties or challenges, and I have to confess that my job situation was extremely discouraging for a while as well. The Lord has since provided me with a job I enjoy, and I am very grateful. God’s word is full of optimism and hopes to help us overcome the hardships that confront us. He wants to encourage us to face our daily challenges with enthusiasm, strength, and joy because he is fighting our battles right alongside us. Sometimes, all we have to do is stand still, and he gives us success. God has our best interests in mind, and he wants us to know that in him we start every day from a point of victory—because he has never been and never will be defeated” Quote from Karla Hawkins
The Lord stood with me and strengthened me so that the message might be preached fully through me, Also I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work and preserve me for His heavenly kingdom. To Him is the glory forever and ever. Amen! (2 Timothy 4:17-18).
