- American-Indian saying: "Does the moon stop shining because little dogs keep barking at it?" I'm not saying that your family members are "little dogs!" But you are the light in your family/community, through whom the Light of Christ shines for the world to see!

A: Seek God's face.
I recall Don Moen's song "Be Magnified." It goes like this:
"Be Magnified O LORD! You Are Highly Exalted;
And There Is Nothing You Can't Do.
O LORD, My Eyes Are On You..."
In the last post, we saw what Jesus' walking on water meant. Now we'll see how you can walk on water, keeping your eyes fixed on God at all times.
Do you have a life without problems? Yes? Then you have a problem! Because problems come as an in-built feature in life's travel package.
Think about it. If you did not have problems, you would not:
* learn how to solve them
* look for a power higher than yourself who could help you solve them

In the post David and Goliath, we read about how David knocked down the Philistine giant Goliath with just one weapon. No, that weapon was not the stone. It was faith in Jesus Christ.
When you have read the Bible carefully, you know that God, throughout history, has promised people of His blessings if they follow Him and obey Him. You also read how He has fulfilled these promises when people obeyed Him.
David was a shepherd who was faced with a giant of a challenge when he was just a teenager. King Saul of Israel and his army were confronted at war by the Philistines. The enemy camp had a giant of a man in their ranks, called Goliath. You have probably heard the story of David and Goliath (1 Samuel 17). Goliath was over 9 feet tall, solidly built and wore a complete armour. None of the Israelites thought they could take him on. He kept mocking them. He came out against them every morning and evening for 40 days and terrified the Israelite army.
In the name of the LORD!
Then David was sent to the battlefront by his father Jesse. He had a good look at Goliath and saw no reason why he could not overcome this hurdle to victory. So when Goliath cursed him, he answered him back:“You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the LORD will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you and take your head from you. And this day I will give the carcasses of the camp of the Philistines to the birds of the air and the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. Then all this assembly shall know that the LORD does not save with sword and spear; for the
battle is the LORD’s, and He will give you into our hands.” (1 Samuel 17:45-47) You can purchase a Bible from Christianbook.com
David took out a stone and took aim. At the first throw itself, the stone hit Goliath's forehead and knocked him to the ground. David took Goliath's sword and killed him and cut off his head, as he said he would. The Philistines fled. King Saul and his army chased them and killed them and won.
You can win too, if faced with a giant in your life.
Read the forthcoming post Trust God and Overcome the Giant to find out how.
