Have an Abundant Faith

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.(Hebrew 11:6)

One of the greatest and my favorite stories of the Bible is David and Goliath. It’s such a good story, in fact, that the world has come to make common use of it! A prime example of this is when the underdog faces an invincible champion in just about any sport on national television, commentators always seem to make mention of David and Goliath.

Imagine the scene at the time of David. The children of Israel were small compared to the Philistines (incidentally, they are still small today β€” there are very few tall people in Israel!). And here they are faced with this enormously frightening giant, Goliath, champion of the Philistines.

All the Israelites shook in their sandals, saying Goliath’s too big for us to hit! All but one, young little David. Instead of fearing Goliath’s enormity, David saw his size to be an advantage! He said, on the contrary β€” Goliath is too big to miss! That day, David became a hero for the Israelites and his name would be remembered well –even to this day.

It all depends on our point of view, the way we see our circumstances. We can either walk in doubt, asking “Can God do this thing?” or walk in faith, proclaiming “God surely will!”

We all have some scary Goliaths to face in our lives. You may be facing one right now. Have faith, my friend! In our greatest distresses God wants to show that He is powerful! Let’s walk in faith for His victory! Have an abundant Faith. Amen.
