Taking on Goliath

( 3 )

Overview

The question that we need to answer is: How do we unleash the ?David? that is in all of us? What was it about David that enabled him to defeat Goliath? The answer is pretty simple. Jesus said, ?Have faith in God? (Mk. 11:22). As simple as that answer may seem, putting that statement into practice and living a life that exemplifies faith in God isn't always as easy as it sounds.

    One of the Best!

    When that shepherd boy picked out five smooth stones from the creekbed 3,000 years ago, I know he had no idea his courage would be remembered and written about in our day. When David unleashed one of those stones at his Goliath of a problem, he had no idea people in our day would study his actions and try to learn from his life. When I picked up Taking on Goliath: How To Unleash The David in All Of Us, I had no idea how great a book this would be. But it wasn't long until I sat up and began to pay attention--and then began to use my yellow marker. Rob Marshall writes, 'It takes a long time to be an overnight success.' To take on his giant, David had first taken on himself. He had worked on his character and proven dependable in everyday little actions--those very actions which make up a person's life. 'A vision or purpose for our lives...will help us say no to the things that would distract us from God's plan.' Knowing the direction we're headed means we also know all the directions we're not headed. We can avoid the multitude of interesting little sidetraps that eat up the time and waste the lives of unfocussed people. The author quotes Howard Thurman, who wrote, 'Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.' Then Marshall goes on: 'What you're looking for are the dreams that resonate deep in your heart, the ones that scare you a little and that make you feel most alive.' 'Who we are and what's in our hearts control what we do and what we get in life.' And this is all just from Chapter One: 'Clarity--Preparing Our Hearts.' There are nine more chapters, all just as powerful, from 'Confrontation--Handling Criticism' to 'Commitment--Making Decisions' to 'Courage--Facing Our Fears.' I congratulate the author on a book well done: well-written, practical and very motivating. No one who reads this book will be disappointed.

    Running thru Goliath

    This is much more than a book using the theme of David and Goliath. It has incredible insight on confronting our obstacles and overcoming our challenges. I've made so many notes and underlined so many of the author's lines that the book will stay in my personal library as a reference and a guide. Sometimes I need to be reminded that there are few actual impossibilities in life. You need this book!
