Trusting God is a stabilizing experience
We can’t know for sure, but from every indication David didn’t have the jitters when he went into battle. Why? Because he was stabilized by his trust in God. Again, no matter what situation we face in life, it always starts with where our eyes are fixed. Back in July, Nik Wallenda walked across Niagara Falls. Of course this is something that takes much training. However, there is another important factor in being able to complete this feat. He was able to complete this feat because no matter what issues he faced his eyes were fixed on one thing. I think this thought can also be illustrated by storms. A lot of times when it storms and rains, all we see are a sky full with clouds, rain, and lightening. However, if we took time to imagine seeing through the clouds, rain and lightning, we would see the sun shining. It is the same with the storms in our lives. All we see is the storms that are going on. However, if we look past the storms, the sun is always shining on the other side. Do we see as the world sees? Or do we see as God sees? Like David, we also stabilized by our trust in God.
