Goliath! You Are Going Down!

I remember one Vacation Bible School I planned in the past years having David and Goliath roaming around all day and David had a chance to slay Goliath over and over again. The kids loved seeing our Goliath-like actor hitting the ground again and again. I guess as time went on, David didn’t seem much like the underdog anymore. They all knew what was going to happen. However, they cheered David on each time as if it was the first time they had seen him in battle.

I am sure those who were watching the real battle as recorded in Samuel had no idea that David could win. It seemed like such a mismatch. But with God, all things are possible.

We know the story, and like those children at VBS, we have been present to the story many times. We know what can be accomplished with God. However, we continue to worry and doubt that we can overcome large obstacles or challenges in our lives, even with God’s assistance. We have heard this story and many others, both scriptural and from personal testimonies, and we still doubt.

What are the Goliath’s you need to slay in your life today? Can you attack them head on with God’s help? Are you willing to trust in Him?

May you walk freely with the Lord through a battlefield covered in slain Goliath’s today and everyday. Remember, all things are possible with God!
