Circumstance or Challenge

What do you do when confronted with circumstances that negatively affect you? I have another “c” word I use instead of “c”ircumstances. Try using “c”hallenge. With every circumstance comes a challenge to look for kinks in the armor of that circumstance. They always have them. Nothing is too great for God not to give you the ability to find them. Once you do, you are no longer at the mercy of that circumstance. You’ve taken the challenge to overcome it and will easily defeat that enemy by taking advantage of its weakness. David knew where to strike Goliath. His aim was sure and his stone hit exactly where the giant’s weakness was. He didn’t kick around the dust at his feet and slowly approach his enemy. Note that he RAN toward his enemy. What is challenging you today? It’s time to defeat that giant that hasn’t seen how big your God is and take a run at it.

I Sam 17:50 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David.

51 Therefore David ran, and stood upon the Philistine, and took his sword, and drew it out of the sheath thereof, and slew him, and cut off his head therewith. And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled.

About Jim

I'm a 72 yr old guy, who had worked in Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune for 28 yrs and now retired as of 31 Dec 16. I've worked in medical records, Health Benefits Department, Billing, the IT department and retired as the Personnel Security Manager for the hospital. I'm a musician and Corvette enthusiast. Yes, I have had two. I traded my second Corvette for a Harley Davidson Fat Boy mid-summer 2019. I've already ridden about seven thousand miles. I'm also searching for a fresh new outlook on life with new spiritual insight among other things. I was ordained a minister on 20190202. I've become certified with the American Chaplaincy Association through Aidan University in June '21. I've found that with the unconditional love of my companion, Libby Rowe life is complete through God. She's a beautiful, vibrant, giving woman who gives her all in everything she puts her mind to do. She and I married on 24 July 2015. She was ordained in February 2022. She has a blog too called Under a Carolina Moon. Give it a visit.
