Recently, I read the story about David killing Goliath – it’s always inspiring & encouraging! As I read the story leading up to Goliath’s death, David recounted how he had fought off a lion & a bear to protect the sheep under his care. David used this memory to encourage Saul that with God’s help, David could overcome Goliath. Futhermore, when David confronted Goliath, he boasted that he would use Goliath’s own sword to cut off Goliath’s head, which is exactly what happened. Later in David’s life, David again acquired Goliath’s sword from a helpful priest for his own weapon as he was running away from Saul to save his life. Goliath’s sword was a turning point for David’s life – shifting away from sheep & moving toward kingship.
In our lives, there are turning points, like Goliath’s sword. God uses unique things & experiences in our lives for both victories & encouragment at very strategic times, particularly for me with Saving Moses. We can trust God to direct our steps and give us the resources necessary for each step 🙂
