I was reading Psalms 104:1-4. It is so powerful that I had to share it with you!
Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul! O Lord my God, You are very great! You are clothed with honor and majesty—
[You are the One] Who covers Yourself with light as with a garment, Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain or a tent,
Who lays the beams of the upper room of His abode in the waters [above the firmament], Who makes the clouds His chariot, Who walks on the wings of the wind,
Who makes winds His messengers, flames of fire His ministers.
No wonder Goliath was nothing to small David! Even though he was the smallest son of Jesse, once he heard of this big giant, he knew that God (the God of Israel) would win the battle! Why? Because he knew the heart of God. David knew God intimately and deeply!
Nothing was impossible for David’s God! No one and no thing even compared to David’s God!
When our impossibility is bigger than our God, then our impossibility becomes our idol. What’s your impossibility? What is your giant Goliath?

I have Goliaths for sure. Just yesterday my hubs said that I kinda just said that the Holy Spirit couldn’t handle something…uh, oh yeah, he’s God. I’m so thankful he’s bigger than my Goliaths!
OOH! How easily I can give into my impossibility. Praise God He is bringing wisdom and discernement in those areas, I still get spoofed, but I seem to see my Goliath a little clearer now. Just loved this Sheri
HI, sooo cool to “meet” you! This bloggy world makes it truly ‘a small world’ eh?! Thank you for coming by my place…THANK YOU for taking time to write comments on some of my near and dear posts. You had such sweet words for me….they were such an encouragement. We ARE so blessed by the Father! >>Hmm…my Goliath? I’m thinking right about now it would be (because we were missionaries and have recently come home and begun life over) getting into our own home and being financially ‘ok’. >>Loved your statement..When our impossibility is bigger than our God, then our Impossibility becomes our idol. WOW, that was PROFOUND. Whew, have to think about that one for a while….thank you dear sister for sharing and loving with Christ’s love! >>Have a blessed weekend with your family!! 🙂
Oh my. I’ve never thought about my impossibility becoming my idol. I’m glad that you pointed that out. My Goliath is our personal finances. I’m consumed with wanting to get out of debt and have enough income for our family.
