This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 1 John 5:14
"David said to the Phillstine, "You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you I the name of the LORD Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied." - I Samuel 17:45
A lot of the time when we are up against a situation that seems huge, we look around and see all the reasons why we can’t. Maybe we think that we’re not smart enough, not equipped enough, or don’t have enough money. What we see is our limitation. We see where we don’t measure up and all of our weaknesses.
In the Bible, the army of God was faced with a situation that seemed way bigger than them. They felt too small and unequipped to handle the giant Goliath and his fighting skills. The neat thing about this story is how David viewed the situation. Where everyone in the army of God saw lack and limitation, David saw an opportunity for God’s strength.
In the story of David and Goliath, David chooses to side with God. He trusts that God was going to fight for Him. And because of David’s choice to see possibility instead of limitation, he saw God come through for Him in a major way and win the battle.
You might be facing a situation or problem that seems huge. But today, be encouraged. Just like David, you’ve got a God who loves you and who is fighting on your side. Choose to see your problems as opportunities to see God move in your life.
Class of 2018
Our graduation service will be held this Sunday May 6th. If you are setting up a table I will have the tables out in the church foyer this Saturday May 5th. I will also leave the foyer unlocked all day to give you time to work on your tables. We are also asking our church family to bring a covered dish Sunday morning. We will have a church wide luncheon after morning service to honor our grads. I’m looking forward to this service and I am also very proud of our graduates this year.
