Let’s read together this scripture from 1 Samuel 17: 34-36, 49-50: ” But David said to Saul, “Your servant used to keep his father’s sheep, and when a lion or a bear came and took a lamb out of the flock, I went out after it and struck it, and delivered the lamb from its mouth; and when it arose against me, I caught it by its beard, and struck and killed it. Your servant has killed both lion and bear; and this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, seeing he has defied the armies of the living God (..). Then David put his hand in his bag and took out a stone; and he slung it and struck the Philistine in his forehead, so that the stone sank into his forehead, and he fell on his face to the earth. So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone, and struck the Philistine and killed him. But there was no sword in the hand of David.
David was able to face and defeat Goliath because he had not forgotten that one day God had given him victory over the bear and the lion. He remembered the first feat he accomplished by the power of his God.
On the other hand, the people of Israel failed at the gates of Canaan because they had forgotten that God had fed them, given them water, miraculously protected them as they walked in the wilderness (1 Corinthians 10:1-11).
Beloved, how do you react when facing an adversity or a challenge? Surely you have already experienced feats that God powerfully accomplished in your life. Do you remember them? Do you believe that this same God is with you, facing the current adversity of your life? He has not changed and still wants to glorify Himself! He is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13: 8)
In order not to forget, I encourage you to have your notebook of remembrance; and note down in the small notebook, your prayer topics as well as their fulfillment and dates. And so like David, you will remember them when facing a challenge: you will defeat the giants by remembering the miracles God has already accomplished in your life.
It may happen that God’s response is a process and that He has already began to answer you without you noticing. Do not despise little beginning, remember the little cloud which was as small as a man’s hand, that Elijah’s servant saw before the heavy rain, in the middle of drought (1 Kings 18:44).
Writing and constantly reading the first signs of fulfillment and the “small” divine interventions, will enable you to be grateful to God and speed up the ongoing process of fulfillment.
May God bless you Beloved

And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days. (…) And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the LORD Shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, As the LORD has said, Among the remnant whom the LORD calls.”
