Some 3,000 years ago a Philistine giant named Goliath engaged a young shepherd named David in a fight to the death. Standing more than nine feet tall and many times David’s match in physical strength, Goliath seemed to be the sure victor. But David didn’t think of the battle as his own.

David voiced his assurance this way: “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied” (1 Samuel 17:45).

How are you fighting the “Goliaths” in your life? Are you battling in your own strength, or are you strong in the Lord?
