A Trusting Heart
August 17, 2021

Today’s 333 Devotional: “A Trusting Heart”

David learned to trust God as a boy as he shepherded his father’s flocks. And then, little by little his faith in God grew as he took on greater challenges. David’s faith grew to the point where he was willing to take on a lion and a bear to save the flock. Therefore, when it came to Goliath, he didn’t cower in fear like the rest of Israel, because he feared and trusted only God.

Because of the faith that was built, when David gets to the camp and sees what is going on, he is incensed at Goliath’s words, but also the people’s lack of response and outrage to Goliath’s words. And so, David said, “Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God?”

David feared God, and not man.

David’s trust and faith in God had been built over years of shepherding. He faced challenges and trusted God to help him rather than fearing the danger. And on each occasion, his faith was built to where he could face the greater challenge, and that was Goliath.

And so, the question becomes, “How are we dealing with the challenges we face?” Do we trust in God to give us the victory, or do we kind of let them slide saying something like, “If it’s God’s will? If we can’t step out in faith in the normal everyday occurrences of life, then how can we ever expect to face the Goliath sized problems that come our way?

Jesus knew how to trust in the Father and not fear man. He wasn’t afraid of upsetting the religious establishment. And so, He took on the religious leaders of that day, and won. And then He took on the greatest Goliath of them all, death, and won the victory for all of us.

Therefore, if we want a heart and faith that pleases God then we need to take a stand for God, with a trusting heart.
