Daunting opponents can appear massive and larger than life. When David faced off against Goliath, he was taking on a man who exceeded him by two times. The gleaming soldier had double the size, experience, and prowess of the young shepherd boy. It should have been a blowout win for the Philistine champion. Instead it became the greatest upset of all time! When you stand before a giant, do so with the confidence of one who competes in the strength of the Lord. David appeared to enter the battle field with only a sling and five smooth stones, but beyond the sight of his enemy he carried the favor and blessing of the Liv- ing God. Face your next overwhelming opponent the way David did, leaning on previously granted victories and the promised support of our mighty God.
“Let no one lose heart on account of this Philistine; your servant will go and ght him I Sam 17:32 .
How will you prepare differently for the next big game?
