Tough times are inevitable because — life. It’s how we handle ourselves in those situations that will make us or break us.
Our outlook determines the outcome. Are we going to learn, or are we going to linger? Are we gonna let God battle, or are we gonna let defeat slay us before we even get started?
It’s hard when we are staring a giant right in the face not to turn around and run for the mountains – arms flailing, heart pounding, tears falling. It’s scary when we feel ill-equipped. Human nature tells us to either lash out or to curl up in the fetal position. Human nature tells us that the situation we are in is utterly impossible.
But if we will fully open our eyes and our heart, we will see that we have a giant of a God next to us ready to slay any so-called Goliath that’s messing with His kiddo. We will see that God’s muscles are so much bigger. And we will know without a doubt that victory is one stone’s throw away.
Are we strong enough? Nope.
Are we brave enough? Nope.
Are we equipped enough? Nope.
Is God enough? You better believe it!
Grab Him by the hand, and let Him fight whatever battle is staring you in the face today.
