Not Ordinary

"David fastened his sword to his armor and tried to walk, for he had not tested them. And David said to Saul, “I cannot walk with these, for I have not tested them. So David took them off. Then he took his staff in his hand; and he chose for himself five smooth stones from the brook, and put them in a shepherd’s bag, in a pouch which he had, and his sling was in his hand. And he drew near to the Philistine...Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the LORD will deliver you into my hand," (1 Samuel 17:39-40, 45-46a) When Goliath was slain God did not make a major, prophetic display of it. Instead, he took a teenage boy with five smooth stones and a slingshot and this teenage boy slew the giant with only his stones, not with sword or other weapons. You see, God takes ordinary, everyday, average people and does extraordinary things through them. So, the next time you think you can't do something, remember you CAN do it if you only allow God to work through you. Who knows what you can do then!! Love, Beau
