Fear has two meanings
‘Forget Everything & Run’
‘Face Everything & Rise’
The choice is yours
The story of Goliath vs. David rings true for each of us. We are dealt with cards that seems insurmountable to us. As we slay one giant another one rears its head up. Sometimes we crack under the pressure but the fight never stops. It would have been nice if we could face the giants in our lives with the same confidence that David had.
The Philistine also said to David, “Come to me, and I will give your flesh to the birds of the sky and the beasts of the field.” 45 Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, a spear, and a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have taunted. 46“This day the LORD will deliver you up into my hands, and I will strike you down and remove your head from you. And I will give the dead bodies of the army of the Philistines this day to the birds of the sky and the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel, 47 and that all this assembly may know that the LORD does not deliver by sword or by spear; for the battle is the LORD’S and He will give you into our hands.”
1 Samuel 17: 44-47
7 Some boast in chariots and some in horses,
But we will boast in the name of the LORD, our God.
8 They have bowed down and fallen,
But we have risen and stood upright.
Psalms 20: 7-8
