Lions, Tigers, and Bears. Oh My! (1 Samuel 17:18-37)

Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Wednesday service

Relate your past troubles to a lion or a bear, something that is dangerous that can bring mortal fear. If your hope and trust is in God, we shouldn't have the fear of those things. Our enemy the devil walks around like a lion just waiting to pounce on a weak one. Courage is a by product of faith. The world teaches that we can not stand against the enemy. We need more confidence in God so instead of running away from the enemy, we stand against him. How much is joy worth? People spend millions of dollars seeking for joy. So you've had "bear" attacks, but you're still here. We've been through really rough battles, but we're all still here. So what does the future hold? More lions and bears. If God is for you, who could be against you? We've been made MORE than conquers. The devil is out to steal what God has given you. Don't let him steal your joy. So we know that trouble is coming, so what do we do? We need to prepare to fight! Ephesians 6:11-20 Stand, having the entire armor of God on!
