I read this morning a little prayer for children regarding staying strong in the face of enemies (from Prayers Over Our Children). The writer points out that when David needed to fight the giant Goliath, he had exactly what he needed–the slingshot and the stones.
I’m amazed to think that God prepares us in advance for whatever battle we’re in–physical or spiritual. I imagine my frantic proclamation that I don’t have what I need. I usually feel alone or unequipped, but if I just look around, my slingshot and stone are right at my feet.
I pray that we recognize what God has provided to stay strong, even if these tools appear small and inconsequential.
