Joe black tells a story of him singing in church and an elderly lady told him after, that he should have faith like David. He continues to explain, that David didn’t have that much faith as he picked up 5 stones for 1 giant. He tells how the lady explained that it was. Perfect faith as it was 5 stones for 5 giants, as Goliath wasn’t alone, he brought his 4 brothers. So, in fact David’s faith was great as he literally had 1 stone for each of them.
5 stones for his 5 giants. How many stones do you need for your giants. Time to have faith and pick up a stone for each of your giants. Being broke, Sad, depression, lonely, insecure, adultery, love …… and so the list goes on. We all must face one or more “giants” in our daily lives. The harder we try to get rid of it, the more we experience failure. It constantly feels as if we are fighting a losing battle, a constant war against live, our giants. Where we have the solution just not the weapon to deal with it. Yet today I need to tell you, you do have “the weapon” we just tend to sometimes forget that we can defeat our giants. We have the stones all we need is to trust our slingshot.
All we must do is just believe, pick up your “5” stones and trust that each stone you have, when flung in believe will hit and obliviate it’s target. A stone(faith) flung at a giant (problem) will hit its target (believe).
Have faith like David,
face your giants.
Father today I pray for all to be able to pick up their stones and have faith like David. With You as our slingshot we know our target will not be missed.
