The Battle Belongs to the Lord (Part 2)

1 Samuel 17 Continuing on with our story of David and Goliath here, there are a few keys points we can glean from David’s preparation to meet the giant. First of all, David realized that the Lord had been preparing him for this moment for a long time. By tending sheep, the Lord had given David the perfect training ground for the battle he was facing. Take a minute to think how the Lord has prepared you for raising your kids in our current climate. What experiences has He allowed you to have that are going to be helpful as you guide your kids through the minefields of our culture? Sometimes we don’t always realize the hardships or trials the Lord allows (the bears and lions God allowed to attack David’s sheep) are actually necessary for our spiritual development.

The Battle Belongs to the Lord (Part 1)

Let me play the role of David here for a minute and encourage you. Parents – this is the

Wearing the Crown

In moments of angst, when purity has seemed too hard and not worth it, I have allowed myself to ponder the alternative, usually when I’ve retired for the evening. It’s gone something like this… “You know, I could just blow it all right now. Does it really matter? I could walk into any one of the college parties and dance with some guy and have sex tonight if I felt like it” Most people who know me don’t believe I’d ever think that. My crucified self doesn’t, but my flesh does. No matter how much you know about who God is and why purity matters to Him, you can still be deceived. You and I aren’t perfect. We are not above this sin. Shakespeare once wrote, “Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown.” When I get angsty and rebellious like this, it’s because I’m wearing the crown. I could
