Attitude can make a pivotal difference when facing down a giant.
David was the youngest – remember overlooked when the great prophet Samuel came to anoint the next king – at left at home AGAIN to look after the sheep. His brothers go off to war to become heroes and he has to stay home, like a kid. This could of made him feel insecure and insignificant – esp when his dad tells him to go take some lunch to his brothers. Menial. Not very life changing or significant.
But even when his brother insults him David maintains an attitude of self confidence – or perhaps more so confidence in who he is and who he is called to be. His brother’s words were intended to make him doubt and retreat but David was not affected.
He had a different perspective of WHO HE WAS – He was God’s.
He had an attitude of faith and an identity secured in what God said about him.
To overcome self doubt we need to get a clear and accurate picture of who God says we are.
MEN AND WOMEN OF DESTINY.
To step out and be the person we are called to be and to do the things we are called to be we need to be people of FAITH – having faith in GOD – it is HIM who works in us – I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH HIM WHO GIVES ME STRENGTH.
In order to overcome the giants we face we must have an understanding of what God says about who we are.
Overturn the doubt by fixing your eyes on Jesus and His truth and His words. It’s all about attitude. David’s attitude was one of faith. Not doubt. He was unshakable because He had faith in God’s unshakable power.
Attitude can determine outcome. Our attitudes determine our actions.
Change your attitude and you can change your perception and outcome.
An attitude of doubt will hold you back from stepping out. An attitude of faith will propel you into adventure and opportunity.
Faith provides eyes for the heart. Faith sees. ~ Bill Johnson
To overcome an attitude of doubt we must REPLACE it with the opposite attitude: Faith
Let your FAITH be bigger than your fear.
Doubt isn’t conquered by confidence in our own giftings or abilities, which may sound like a contradiction to what I have said and will say – but the reality is that doubt is conquered when we know the greatness and power and almightiness of God!
God is faithful.
God is powerful.
God is compassionate.
God is for us.
God is holy.
God is the Creator of the Universe.
God’s thoughts and ways and wisdom are higher and greater than ours.
He is omnipresent, omnipowerful and omniscient.
In other words, He sees all, knows all and has all the power.
He is awesome and glorious, good and great.
Have a holy confidence that is founded and grounded upon GOD and His abilities and resources!
We overcome the giants in our life with faith!
