Have you ever had enough? Have you ever been sick and tired of being sick and tired? Does it seem as though Satan is ALL UP IN YO’ STUFF? A lot of times, it looks that way. It feels that way, and we react on those feelings. Well, I’ve learned over the course of my life that feelings kill. And it’s because emotions run our feelings, and with that, we often cannot make a clear-headed decision about anything when we’re like that.
Kid decisions, spouse decisions, work decisions, sometimes even faith decisions. I saw this come across my twitter feed from Toby Mac, and thought it was awesome and spoke a lot.
"Sometimes God will put a Goliath in your life for you to find the David within you."
Can you feel me now? Does that not speak to us and to our trials? David didn’t go looking for Goliath – remember, he went looking for his brothers. The situation happened upon him when he approached the camp. So, when our own personal Goliath shows up, what are we going to do about it? Will we find our own “David” inside of us?

For a warrior, they/we love to be fed great portions of meat. This goes to our strength and energy for the fight – well, these verses give us enough “meat” to give our spirit strength and energy for the fight as well. Tap into it; the fight is ongoing. To battle!
