UCC Devotional in Response to David and Goliath

Monday, September 23, 2013

I read this today, by Matthew Laney, who is the Senior Minister of Asylum Hill Congregational Church, in Hartford, Connecticut and thought I'd share:

God, when I am faced with giant problems, help me to remember that you do not call me to be practical, strong, resolute, calm, cool, calculating, patient or frantic. You do not even call me to be successful. You only call me to be faithful.

I nonetheless find myself praying for all those other qualities, daily.

    I just prayed for my husband last night to give him the faith of David! That is awesome!

    I understand. God wants us to believe He "has our back"! The Lord is my shepherd. emoticon
