This week, we learn a little more about David, and how we can model his techniques for successfully defeating our Goliaths.
Here are 3 questions you can wrestle with this week. I encourage you to read David vs. Goliath in 1Samuel 17. Then reflect on these questions personally and with a circle of trusted people.
1. Every day we face giants in our lives. Maybe your giant is anxiety, insecurity, body image, anger, or unforgiveness. The list of giants is long and very personal. Take a moment and ask yourself. What giant is stopping me in my tracks and blocking my spiritual growth?
2. Once you’ve named your giant, it’s time to tap into God’s supernatural power given to you through the Holy Spirit. Think of a time when God fought a battle for you. You won, but you’re confident it was because the battle belonged to the Lord. There’s power in remembering how God came through for you in the past. Ask yourself, when have I seen the Holy Spirit at work in my life? Share you real life story and watch your confidence soar!
3. Knowing you show up on the battlefield with the power of the Holy Spirit, visualize what the victory looks like. Then ask God to give you the stepping stones – each step of the way to defeat your giant. That might mean calling to make a counseling appointment, or studying forgiveness in the Bible, or linking arms with a friend who’s fighting the same battle. What’s your first step toward victory?
