Sometimes we don’t have the privilege or luxury of going through our issues in private.
Let’s take a look at David.
When David finally reached King Saul, Saul laughed at him, demeaning him and saying,
“You are only a boy.”
But Saul finally gave in to a determined David and said,
“OK, boy. If you insist on going out there and fighting that giant, put my armor on.”
So David put the armor on and clinked and clanked around the king’s tent.
He could have thought,
“Go home, David, go home. You don’t fit in the big boys’ clothes.”
But David didn’t go home! Instead he said,
“I can’t go in this armor,” and he took it off. (See 1 Samuel 17:33, 38–39.)
This tells me we all have our own armor.
We don’t need to wear anyone else’s. Just be yourself. You have your own style.
As long as you take off the giant’s head, who cares what method you use? It may be behind a pulpit or it may be in the mall; you may wear a suit and tie or jeans and a hoodie—who cares? Just swing the Rock, Christ Jesus—and carry it around as a reminder that it’s only the Rock who slays the giants that stand in our path!
Today, instead of wearing someone else’s armor—give yourself permission to just be yourself.
