Have you ever faced a problem with your knees trembling? Everything within you tells you to "run and hide." But you hear a quiet voice reminding you that "God did not give you a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, love and a sound mind." (2 Timothy 1:7)
Jesus told us "Take my Yoke upon you, and learn from me. I am humble in heart and you will find rest for your souls." (Matthew 11:29)
I'm not sure if they still teach kids this - but when I was a kid in school, they taught us a song. The words went like this: "He's got the whole world in His hands, He's got the whole wide world, in His hands, He's got the whole world in His hands, He's got the whole world in His hands." We sang it innocently because we were told to (in music class). But it is the truth. Even His word says, "I have engraved you upon the palms of my hands."

I'm quite sure that David was scared as he faced that mean ol' giant. But I think he also felt peace while he stood there because he recognized that the fight wasn't his. He recognized and acknowledged that without God he could do nothing. But with God, well "all things are possible."
With God on your side - there is no room for failure. "The steps of the righteous are ordained by God." (Psalm 37). He ordained you. Your steps. YOU.
Okay... I've got my slingshot. Loading it up and aiming it at the current worry in my life... Down it goes! Another one bites the dust! It's your turn now... You GOT this! Because He has You. Deep breath, exhale... Let it fly!
