You ever imagine if the story of David and Goliath had occurred in 2017. After a stone sent the giant to the ground I’m sure the reporters would have pulled David aside to get the exclusive. “David, what kind of message are sending the youth of today that they should fight giants with only a sling and a stone? Don’t you think it is a little reckless to go into battle without a shield?”
With a big smile on David’s face I imagine he would say, “Actually, I was the only one out there today who had a shield.” Perplexed the reporter would reply, what do you mean? You see “the Lord is my strength and shield. I trust in Him with all my heart.” (Psalms 28:7).
The enemy may appear unconquerable. Their resources may seem limitless. You’ve heard stories of others who have been defeated by them, but when you go against them in the “name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel” (1 Samuel 17:45) you will be victorious. Never accept defeat again. Never allow the enemy to determine your attitude. Instead, in Christ, know that you are more than a Conqueror through Him who loved us. (Romans 8:37).
