Triumphing Over Giants..

I just prayed the same thing last night. Asking for God to give me strength and courage to face the difficulties I'm facing right now. Doubts and fear I'm having, I hope to overcome them..
And this morning, I read ODB and it's titled Triumphing Over Giants.
Sometimes we feel our problems are sooo big, like a big great giant standing before us.. can't find a way to get out of it, sometimes even makes us feel like giving up and be eaten..
Us, as God's children, should never forget.. that God will always be with us in whatever condition.. He has us protected in His hands.. He's just a prayer away.. He'll come and help.
After all, we are all God's origami.. all the things we face, good or bad, happy or sorrow, are His ways to twist, fold and turn us to be more like His Son.

sharing the reads:

Read: 1 Samuel 17:33-50

The Lord, who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine. - 1 Samuel 17:37

In 1935, the debate team of Wiley College, a small and unranked black school in Texas, unexpectedly defeated the all-white championship team from the University of Southern California. This was a classic case of the unknown triumphing over a national giant.
When ancient Israel was in peril t the hands of the Philistines, there was a boy named David who actually triumph over a giant (1 Sam. 17). The armies were drawn up on opposite sides of the Valley of Elah. They were probably afraid of one another and decided that the outcome of the battle should be determined by a battle of champions.
The Philistines offered Goliath, a giant (about 9' 9"), but Israel could not find anone who was worthy or brave enough to fight. David heard of the dilemma and appealed to Saul to let him fight Goliath (vv. 32-37). saul was reluctant, but he agreed. David, armed with five smooth stones (v.40) and unswerving fight in the Almighty God (v.45), triumphed over the Philistines' national champion.
We all face giants in our lives - worry, doubt, fear, sin and guilt. But with limited and unlikely resources and unswerving confidence in our all-powerful God, we too can triumph over them. - Marvin Williams

Come, Lord, and give me courage -
Thy conquering Spirit give;
Make me an overcomer
In power within me life. - Anon.

God gives us courage to challenge our giants.
Hope you all have a great blessed day!!
