1 Samuel 17:1-54

David asked the soldiers standing nearby, “What will a man get for killing this Philistine and ending his defiance of Israel? Who is this pagan Philistine anyway, that he is allowed to defy the armies of the living God?” 1 Samuel 17:26

How are we viewing our gigantic problems? Are we viewing it like the rest of the world? Or, are we viewing it like David using a Godly perspective? Everyone, even the King Saul, saw Goliath as someone scary and invincible. But, a simple shepherd like David saw him as a mere pagan.

In this world most people admire the self-confident and aggressive. But, almost  no one notices those who are Christ-confident and passive. In this world most idolize the rich and famous. But, does anyone notice the poor and rejected? How many people on this planet trust soothsayers more than the living Word? Most people want the best and be the first. No body want to be the least and last.

If you have noticed, common thinking is very different from godly thinking. I think the point I am driving at is… Our gigantic problems are so small in relation to God. Just like David, if God is with us, there’s really nothing to fear. To Him nothing’s impossible. Time to change perspectives, don’t you think?
