Your perspective for His
This morning I read the story of David and Goliath, found in 1 Samuel 17. Whenever I read this Bible story I am inspired and encouraged. There are so many different points that strike me about this, but there's only time for one.
Perspective. This story is about a little guy, David, who fights a big 9 foot giant named Goliath. It's the typical underdog story. The Israelites were afraid because Goliath was so big. Their perspective was that he was, too big, too strong, and could not be defeated. As far as they could see, they were too small, too weak and already defeated.
Now David enters the scene but sees something different. He saw a man defying God. He saw that the giant was big but the God he served was bigger. He slew Goliath and the army of God defeated their enemies that day. It took one change of perspective to make a big difference.
Ponder this, the Israelites saw Goliath and said "he's too big to hit". David saw Goliath and said "he's too big to MISS!" That's a change in perspective.
How do you see your obstacles today? No obstacle is bigger than your God. Ask Him to trade your perspective for His.
