When David came face to face with Goliath he didn’t see through the eyes of fear and run away scared like everyone else. David didn’t see a giant at all, what David saw was an opportunity for God to show up and bring a victory.
The Bible refers to David as a man after God’s own heart. I believe when it comes to navigating this life, we need a revelation of God’s heart for our own lives. When you know the nature and character of God and have a deeply anchored understanding of what God thinks about you, then you’ll have something to stand on when adversity comes.
I believe that God is raising up a generation of people who will so intimately know his heart, that they will be able to stand up and be a voice of stability and victory in the midst of the chaos. All you need is one word from God and it can carry you through even the darkest and scariest moments of life.
