David and Goliath

So much can be learned from this story; not just about a fight between two men.  It represents two modes of thinking.  The Goliath is always seen as bullying, scary and offensively large  dark thoughts, while the thought of David represents humility and turning to God, knowing the battle is always His anyway.  After refusing the armor of Saul, he was rewarded with the protection of God.

It reminds me of a horror film.  We know it is just a movie but still get frightened.  I Samuel 17: 37 reads “And David said, ‘The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.’ And Saul said to David, ‘Go, and may the Lord be with you.'”

Today, I will practice turning to God first.

One thought on “David and Goliath

  1. I just LOVE how you are always emphasizing to turn to God first. Some could think, “I get it already…how many times do you have to tell me this,” but error can be so persistent and the moment our thought lapses out of the good, error is right there to slip in with a material suggestion. Always being alert of who is “speaking” to us is so, so important. Thank you for this David and Goliath reference to what type of thinking is more important. Happy week to you! ❤️
