Have great confidence in the Lord today! Many today place their confidence in every other thing except the Lord, maker of heaven and earth. In the story of David and Goliath, David completely aligned his life with the Lord, maker of heaven and earth, so much so that when King Saul questioned David’s abilities to fight Goliath, David said, “The LORD.” “The LORD,” was David’s answer. Think about it!
“Moreover David said, “The LORD (YEHOVAH), 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 the LORD be with you!” I Samuel 17:37
David’s confidence and faith didn’t come from a flash of emotion, but it came from a personal relationship with God. David had killed a lion and a bear and was proficient with a sling and stones, but ultimately David looked to God as the answer. I can tell you that the Lord wants to be your answer. He wants to rise above everything in your life that you place your confidence in and He wants us to trust completely in Him. We have to trust God more than we trust our own abilities and experience. We have to trust God more than we trust our education and what’s in our bank account. We have to trust God more than we trust our spouse or best friends. He must become our answer, because everything else has the possibilities of failure, but God never fails! He has never lost a battle and He never will.
The Lord may not always do what you think He should do, but He still has never failed those who completely trust in Him. The next time you sense the call of God on your life to take on a challenge and your abilities come into question, respond as David did, “The LORD.”
