I’m speaking to a group of inner-city youth today. My message is the story of David. No one thought such a small boy could defeat Goliath. He was ridiculed by his brothers, discouraged by the king. But David knew he could defeat the giant even if no one else believed in him. I hope to encourage these young people that despite where they come from, despite what their parents have accomplished, God has a purpose for them. Others may not recognize it, may make fun of them, even discourage them, but they are important, loved by God, beautiful, smart, and were born for such a times as this (we will finish with the story of Esther).
Please pray that the love of God would be communicated to these young people. Pray that I would speak boldly. Pray that I would demonstrate the love of God in word and in power. Pray that these precious young people will get a revelation that they are God’s masterpiece created for good works. Thank you for your prayers.
“Master,” said David, “don’t give up hope. I’m ready to go and fight this Philistine.” Saul answered David, “You can’t go and fight this Philistine. You’re too young and inexperienced—and he’s been at this fighting business since before you were born.” (1 Samuel 17:32-33 MSG)
