The world we live in is filled with negativity, despair, and hopelessness. However, studying the Bible reveals to us how we can experience victory despite what is going on around us. In the Old Testament, David the young shepherd provided a strong example of how to overcome challenges. Despite the fear around him when Goliath showed up, David never gave up hope; he faced a giant much bigger than himself and slew him. There is an enemy loose in the world today—Satan—who wants to make his presence known. He wants us to feel intimidated, afraid, hopeless, and inferior; however, we can draw from the lessons David taught when we face the Goliaths in our lives. Our strength lies in spending time with God; hearing directly from Him in the midst of the situation causes us to prevail.
