Morning Thought: Like David, use Goliath’s own sword to conquer Goliath. Take whatever is threatening you and turn it to triumph. Difficulties and distresses strengthen you if you see them from the Father’s perspective and transform them through faith. Paul said, “That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong” (2 Corinthians 12:10, NIV).
