I was thinking of all the brave people who triumph over great obstacles. David’s own people could not believe that he would defeat the Giant Goliath and help his people take back their land. And yet he did! His own brothers begged him to not go thru with this.
Yet David had prayed and was encouraged and sure of his decision. No one believed in David! Yet he was sure of his decision. He was brave against all obstacles. He was small, He was a Sheppard Boy, He was small, He was not a warrior, He was laughed at, He was told that he would die! Yet Goliath mocked him from a far, He even proclaimed to be God! He did not believe this little guy would knock him down and that the sword you demanded his servant to get would be the same sword David would use to take off his head with! David was victorious because he knew that God was with him. He knew that he would destroy the giant and that he would take back his land.
Being brave did not just happen. It was his faith! David knew that God would deliver him! In my life I have had brave moments! However never as brave as what God called David to do! He was in line with what God called him to do!
No matter our need for bravery God will be with us! Find comfort in knowing that God has a plan for your life!
