The #1 secret to overcome any weakness

This is the story of David and Goliath. If you already know this story, you can skip the video and the passage below

Here is the story in simple English

There was a war in the land of Israel. King Saul and the Israelites were fighting the Philistines. One of the Philistines was a giant. His name was Goliath. He was very big and strong. The Israelites were afraid of him.

Goliath shouted to the Israelites. He told them to choose a man to fight him. No one wanted to fight the giant. Goliath shouted to them every morning and every night for forty days. None of the Israelites would fight him.

David’s brothers were in the Israelite army. Jesse sent David to take some food to them.

David saw the giant. He heard Goliath shouting. He saw that the men were afraid of Goliath. David said he would fight the giant. His brothers were angry. They said David should be taking care of the sheep.

David knew God would help him. He picked up five stones. He took his sling and went to fight Goliath.

Goliath saw that David was young. He was angry. He shouted at David and made fun of him. David shouted back.

You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.

Goliath came at David to fight. Then David put a stone in his sling and threw the stone.

The stone hit Goliath in the head. Goliath fell to the ground.

David took Goliath’s sword and cut off his head. The Philistines saw David kill Goliath. They were afraid and ran away. God had helped David kill the giant.

How did David succeed?

Note the words of David

You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.

In other words, David was saying

Goliath, you are a trained warrior. You might have lot of years of experience  You are skilled. You have killed many warriors and won many battles. Good. But I come against you trusting in the Name of the Lord Almighty. I am not that as skilled as you, but the One who is with me, is more powerful than you. 

And that’s the key – being confident in God and His strength.

#1 secret to overcome any weakness

Dear friend, that’s all we need, but we rarely acknowledge this fact.

The moment you start trusting in God, and start to have confidence in the strength of the Lord, you will literally start gaining the strength and the power that comes from God which helps you to overcome any weakness.

That’s the entry point of strength in weakness – Your dependence on God (The #1 secret to overcome any weakness)

The world and the friends around you may dump all the so-called wisdom into your head, but never forget this most powerful idea to trust in God Almighty.

Try applying this in your daily life and see the difference for yourselves.

When you are weak, satan will come and whisper in your ears:

You are a failure. You cannot do that. Satan will remind your past mistakes and failures and will try prove that you can never succeed. 

But remember to take this weapon which David took – His total dependence on God and declare victory in the Name of Jesus. Never have any confidence in your own strength, skill, wisdom or power. Trust in God and only in God.

And the result would be VICTORY.
