For forty days, every morning, and every afternoon, a drunk giant had screamed curses at the king and his band of warriors… and not one man was willing to tell him to shut up. Forty days! He stood in front of thousands of men in a battle-hardened army and said, “Give me a man, that we may fight!” The entire army was intimidated. The giant was asking the thousands of warriors, “IS THERE NOT A MAN THAT WILL STAND AND FIGHT?” The world is seeking that answer today.
Jesus’ brother James taught us, “Obstacles make you larger.” He taught us as men not to resist the pain of becoming a larger man. He said, “When your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.” King David, as a young man, is perhaps our best example of how to endure a deep, wounding pain and allow God to turn it into greatness, largeness. Catch how this applies to you.
