Faith that Conquers
Charles F. Stanley
Scripture: 1 Samuel 17:45-47
All of us face difficult circumstances in life. We feel threatened by defeat, embarrassment, and despair. When we face those kinds of battles in life our greatest defense is strong faith in the living God, based upon the foundation of the word of God. When faith is built upon this book it is possible to be victorious and to conquer in every single circumstance of life. This message is about the Faith that Conquers, as exemplified by the story of David and Goliath.
All of us have Goliaths in our lives. They may be people, a job, bad habits, relationship problems. The Faith that Conquers makes it possible to face those challenges and be victorious.
1 Samuel 17:45-47
 Then David said to the Philistine, "You come to me with a sword, a spear, and a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have taunted.
 "This day the Lord will deliver you up into my hands and I will strike you down and remove your head from you. And I will give the dead bodies of the army of the Philistines this day to the birds of the sky (lip smack) and the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel,
 "and that all (the) assembly may know that the Lord does not deliver by the sword by spear; for the battle is the Lord's and He will give you into our hands."
Principles of The Faith that Conquers
Faith that Conquers the quality of faith that moves from, "I know He can but I'm not sure He will," "Yes He will," to "Thank God, it's done and I'm going to await His time to show me the finished product."
