When the only thing you know to do is trust God there will be people that will talk you into relying on your inability due to their perception. We have to be careful when listening to them, because our strength emanate from a greater source. 1 Samuel 17:31-33 David said to Saul, “Let no one lose heart on account of this Philistine; your servant will go and fight him.” 33. Saul replied, “You are not able to go out against this Philistine and fight him; you are only a young man, and he has been a warrior from his youth.” David was sure about the confidence he had in God to deliver him in the situation, he never thought about his inability, he trusted God.

He was able to testify about the victory God gave him in prior situations. Although, his battle was with ferocious animals, that didn’t matter to him. He was confident that God would give him the victory again. 1 Samuel 17: 37 The LORD who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.”

The apostle Paul felt the same way about God delivering him. During his persecution and suffering he had faith to trust God for deliverance. 2 Corinthians 1: 9-10  Indeed, we felt we had received the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. 10. He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again.

We must remember:

  • Isaiah 59:19 …When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.
  • 2 Chronicles 20:15 …Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.

Don’t let worry and fear cause us to forget that the God we serve will do it over and over again. Have faith in God!
