Joel Osteen daily devotionals September 3 2022 : Run to Your Challenges :
1 Samuel 17:48, NLT
As Goliath moved closer to attack, David quickly ran out to meet him.
David was a teenager and shepherd with no military training, experience, or equipment. All he had was a slingshot and five smooth stones. Goliath was almost twice his size, extremely powerful, and an experienced military professional, wearing a full set of armor. You would think David would have tried to sneak up on Goliath. But when you know who you are, when you know you’ve been equipped and empowered, when you know God being for you is more than the world being against you, you won’t run from your challenges; you’ll run to your challenges.
Do you know what God has given you? Do you know you have what you need to unlock every door to your destiny? God doesn’t create anyone without putting something significant inside. That’s why the enemy works overtime trying to convince you that you’re not enough. What you have may look insignificant, like it’s not enough, but when God breathes on it, it will become more than enough. Don’t live from a deficit mentality.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that when the challenges in my way look bigger, stronger, and more powerful than I can handle, I can run toward them, knowing You are breathing on my life and making me more than enough. I believe You being for me is more than anything that comes against me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
