Facing Giants

Pastor:
Passage: 1 Samuel 17:32-49, Mark 4:35-41
Service Type:

We often face what seem insurmountable obstacles.  But David fighting Goliath with faith that God would give him the ability to conquer and Jesus still a storm that had the disciples panicking; show us that God can overcome all that we face.  It is impossible for us, but God is more than able to handle anything.  We just need to remember to call on God, and not try to handle it on our own.  Saul wanted David to wear armor to protect him, but David relied on God.  The disciples wanted Jesus to help bail out the boat, but he had a much better solution.

Confession

God, our Rock and our Redeemer, to often we try to handle problems on our own.  We think we can handle anything, but sometimes find things slipping out of our control; not remembering we were never in control anyway.  We get frustrated when our solutions don’t work out, and people don’t do what we want.  We want to take Your place, forgetting that we are the creations, not the Creator.   Remind us always that You are in control, and if we let You, You will bring about better results than we ever could.
