1 Samuel 17:45 – David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.”
I’m sure you have heard of the latest craze, Pokemon Go. Within the game, your Pokemon can “battle” other people’s Pokemon in Pokegyms. Each Pokemon has a different type and level of ‘attack’. The higher and stronger, the better. When you win the battle, your Pokemon owns that gym.
In life we have so many battles to face – some may seem small and insignificant, others may seem so big that you can’t even imagine being able to overcome it. Regardless of the size of the battle we’re facing, we cannot forget the greatest weapon we all have access to. David was able to defeat the giant by coming against him in the name of the Lord.
What is the giant in your life right now? Does it seem too big, too powerful and too impossible to overcome?
Remind yourself of who your God is. No sword, no spear and no javelin can defeat Him. No amount of time, no amount of strength, no amount of power can come against God – the God who is on your side.
The power of His name is limitless and so much more effective than any of us will ever fully know. You may be weak, tired and fearful, but our God isn’t and when you come against your battle with Him, nothing can stand against you.
