Remember When

  • David said, "Yahweh who delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine." Saul said to David, "Go! Yahweh will be with you." 1 Samuel 17:37 WEB.

    Young David was probably around fifteen years old and facing the greatest challenge of his life, a man named Goliath. He was a real giant of a man who was just over nine feet tall and caused the whole army of Israel to cower in fear as he taunted them.

    David's three older brothers served in the army under King Saul, and one day David brought them some rations from home. While David was there dropping off the supplies, he heard Goliath come out and shout his taunts at Israel. So David asked some of the men about the loud-mouthed giant, but his brother Eliab railed at him and told him to go back home to the "few" sheep he took care of.

    David's faith was not shaken by his brother's criticism, so he turned and asked someone else about the giant. After he learned what was going on, David said: "I'll fight him." This wasn't the first time David had to rely on God's help to survive. He recalled the times that the Lord had delivered him out of bad circumstances.

    David remembered that God had already delivered him from the paw of the lion and the bear and that this giant was only a bigger version. When David stepped out in faith, the same God who had delivered Him in the past defended him once again. That was faith in action.

    When faced with an impossible circumstance, like David, remember the times when God has already come through for you. Don't let fear and worry hold you back from what He has in store. Fear guards the treasure house door, and you will have to face it to get what is inside. Remember when God took care of you, for He will do it again.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, please strengthen me and bring those things You have done for me in the past back to my remembrance. Put the right people around me, and build up my faith. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: For those following the Creation Photography weekly challenges, here is this week's theme from group leader, Dianna Wyles: Isaiah 55:10-12 "As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands." ~ 'Winter Wonderland' will be our next fun theme and is open wide for creative interpretation! I realize winter doesn't always mean snow; what does it look like where you are? Our mountains may have a bit of snow but the valley is just cold and foggy in the mornings, clearing to sunny by mid-day right now...unless it's raining, lol! My photos today reflect our Thanksgiving weekend birding trips and some beautiful creatures that share our California style winter wonderland (Yes! Hummingbirds are still around at the end of November here in Northern Ca.) Enjoy your day everyone, God bless! Here is the link: Creation Photographers
