The hand holding my hand Christianity

There was a difficult time in which I faced a battle and saw myself pressed against a wall of gigantic unbelief.

God, however, asked me to believe what I could not understand to believe. If I experienced the victory in this battle, it would require a tremendous amount of faith.

Have you ever had a giant of unbelief rising above your circumstances and you understand that faith believes that God will work mightily?

I thought of David, how many of us are facing huge battles. And in no time I could see the young David reaching for the five smooth stones and putting one in his slingshot, the other in a bag. Then God stopped me in my tracks and opened my eyes to see another hand, God's own hand came down and wrapped itself around David's hand.

A sudden wave of faith and courage lit in my soul as I thought of God's hand shooting David's smooth stone like a rocket at Goliath. We all know the glorious end of this story. The giant fell to his death and David saw the victory that he knew his master would bring him that day.

At that moment I have also experienced a victory. I knew in my heart that my giant would fall too. God's mighty hand wrapped around my own and the fight that I had struck would soon be the fight I would win! My gigantic unbelief turned into a gigantic triumph, all because of the hand holding my hand. Once again I was reminded that the fight belongs to the Lord, and it is he who fights for me!

Every time we believe in our intimidating circumstances, we win the fight. Day after day we can pick up the smooth stones and throw them at the giants in front of us – and throw them to the ground. God's hand will lead us and He will bring the victory. Sometimes it's a quick win and sometimes it's a slower process.

God gave David the victory over Goliath. He can also give us the victory against the giants in our lives.

1 Samuel 17: 46-50
"Today the Lord will give you my hand, and I will beat you and take your head away from you. And today I will give to the birds of the air and the wild beasts of the earth the carcasses of the camp of the Philistines, that the whole earth may know that there is a God in Israel. Then this whole assembly will know that the Lord does not save with sword and spear. for the battle belongs to the LORD, and he will give you into our hands. "When the Philistine got up and came closer to meet David, David hurried and ran to the army to meet the Philistine. Then David put his hand in his pocket and took out a stone; and he threw it down and struck the Philistine in his forehead, so that the stone sank into his forehead, and he fell on his face to the ground. So David prevailed with a noose and a stone against the Philistine and struck the Philistine and killed him. But there was no sword in David's hand. "
