At the heart of one of the most well known (even clichéd) stories of all time lies a subtle and life changing truth. God used a stone in the hand of a boy. That God used a stone means He can use us too.

If we have to be honest we are losing to life. Sure, we pretend that things are fine, but we know there is more. The lack of life in so many churches

Overview

At the heart of one of the most well known (even clichéd) stories of all time lies a subtle and life changing truth. God used a stone in the hand of a boy. That God used a stone means He can use us too.

If we have to be honest we are losing to life. Sure, we pretend that things are fine, but we know there is more. The lack of life in so many churches confirms this unspoken truth. To make matters worse, we are in bondage to the giants that surround us. While we sing songs of victory on Sunday, Monday brings bondage.

The story of David is the story of each of us. For too long church as we know it has created a structure that undermines our identity in God. We have abdicated who we are as priests of the living God and have often forfeited a victorious life. As we learn what made David different, we too will be made different. We'll become a stone in the hand of a victorious God.

Very thoughtful and applicable to our lives. Made very moving observations with very simple but powerful words. I may start collecting stones to track the victories with which God has blessed me.

This really opened my eyes, by taking one of the largest contributors of the Old Testament (Psalms, anyone?) and holding his life up as a mirror to our own. Andrew Mullek brought the life of David into focus as someone who Praised God where he was, who fought lions, bears, and a giant and took the victory that God granted him. It follows David's eventual misstep, reiterating Romans 3:23 "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God". But God's love is shown in forgiveness and further blessings after repentance. God's love of David and of us all allows us the victory through Jesus Christ. I recommend this to anyone who is struggling with finding joy where you are, anyone coming against challenges and feeling like a failure. Take that victory that God offers. Learn from your missteps, and receive God's blessings!
