But David said to the Philistine, You come against me with a dagger, spear, and sword, but I come against you in the name of the Lord of Hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. – 1 Samuel 17:45
David, a teenager who wasn’t even big enough to fit into a suit of armor, stands across from Goliath, a giant of a man who was also the most skilled and ferocious fighter of the enemy. Things did not look good.
Sometimes, it seems like everything is stacked against you—hopeless situations or circumstances you cannot possibly overcome. You might be faced with crushing financial or family problems. You might have to cope with the humiliating consequences of wrong choices. You may be devastated by the loss of a loved one or the loss of your own health. You are small and weak, standing across from these gigantic problems intent on defeating you. Things do not look good.
But like David, you have a secret weapon of such power that nothing can stand against it. And it is not so secret, it is the Lord God. You come against anything which confronts you in the name of the Lord, the creator of all things and the One who loves you. You may fling a small stone and win the battle, you may simply call out His name. But you can be assured that nothing, no dire circumstance or drastic situation, no problem or sickness or loss or sin, can stand against the Lord God.
Jesus loves us, He forgives us, He fights for us, He heals us, He stands between us and all that try to harm us. Jesus wins. Every. Single. Time.
