Devo: Never Allow Fears to Overwhelm Your Faith

In David’s day they fought “by representation.”  One man would fight for the nation as a whole, and the country of the losing warrior became subservient to the country of the conquering warrior.  The upside is obvious, isn’t it?  Everybody didn’t have to die!  So David versus Goliath was really Israel against the Philistines.  It was a one-on-one contest: winner take all.  We’re familiar with David’s victory over the giant with faith, a stone, and a slingshot.  Yet scripture tell us he picked up not one, but “five smooth stones.”  Why?  it wasn’t lack of faith – he knew that Goliath had four brothers.  Observe:

  1. Giant Killers realize that their giant represents greater issues.
    A giant never stands alone; behind him lie his causes.  Overeating, addiction, abuse, and anger are all driven and supported by other issues.  Somewhere behind the obvious giant are his supportive brothers – pain, guilt, lose, and shame.  David was prepared with five stones – one for Goliath and one for each of his four brothers.  What lies behind your giant?  With God’s help you can conquer both the giant and his support team.
  2. Giant-Killers are not overwhelmed by the challenges.
    Never allow your fears to overwhelm your faith.  The Bible says that “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2Tim 1:7).  Fear will feed on the failures of the past, but you can’t allow yesterday’s failures to overwhelm today’s faith.  So take your failings; list them on a piece of paper and boldly print at the top of the page: “Things I don’t need to try again.”
