1 Sam 17: 34 – 37 But David said to Saul, “Your servant has been keeping his father’s sheep. When a lion or a bear came and carried off a sheep from the flock, I went after it, struck it and rescued the sheep from its mouth. When it turned on me, I seized it by its hair, struck it and killed it. Your servant has killed both the lion and the bear; this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, because he has defied the armies of the living God. The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.”
David did not have any fear to face the giant, because he was reminded of God’s faithfulness in the past. The same God who rescued him from the lion and the bear would rescue him from Goliath too.
In our life we tremble at the giants, because we forget God’s faithfulness in the past. We tend to forget all the victories he has won for us, all the valleys he has brought us through, the mountain tops he has climbed with us, the Jordan experiences, the red sea miracles, the wilderness road where he carried us, the financial breakthroughs and the list goes on.
As we enter this season of Thanks Giving, let us try to keep a Thanks Giving journal giving Him the utmost praise for all He has done for us in 2013 and years before. This will enable us to face the giants in our life with confidence as we know our God is the same yesterday, today and forever!
For God’s children, the best is yet to come. So rejoice dear child of God as you await the dawn of 2014.
