(St. Anthony, Abbot)
David spoke to Saul: “Let your majesty not lose courage. I am at your service to go and fight this Philistine.” But Saul answered David, “You cannot go up against this Philistine and fight with him, for you are only a youth, while he has been a warrior from his youth.” David continued: “The LORD, who delivered me from the claws of the lion and the bear, will also keep me safe from the clutches of this Philistine.” Saul answered David, “Go! the LORD will be with you.” 1_Sm_17:32-33,37,40-51
When the world is screaming in your ears, beloved, “You’re not good enough! You’re not big enough! You’re not old enough! You’re not rich enough! You’re not famous enough!” trust in God your Creator. He is bigger and better than any of them. And, in Him, and with Him, you can do ALL things, even to the conquering of the greatest giant! The LORD be with you, beloved, in Jesus Name, I pray!
