The story has life lessons for us all to learn. We all need the five stones presented in the story. We all need to know God. We need to cease our busyness and turn to God. “It was easy to forget God in the world of business and busyness.” We all need to make room for God in our lives.
Prayer is a two way conversation with God. “She’d… expected God to help her without even a thought to listening to what He had to say.” Prayer is not us asking God for things, we need to listen to His answers. Prayer must be from the heart and not just us paying lip service to God. “She’d prayed… a quick dose method.” Prayer is never meant to be a chore but an act of love.
The novel explores the need for a simple trust in God. “I needed to go forward in faith, not seeing… but knowing You stood there waiting for me.” God has promised to never leave us. We need to trust His word.
We are all blessed and loved by God. ” ‘What made him beloved? What did he do?’… ‘Nothing. He’s my son.’ ” God’s character is to love. It is in his nature to love us. We do nothing to deserve His love but He loves us because of who He is and not for anything we have done.
Conquering Your Goliaths is a book of great beauty. It is a book that will bring peace to your soul. It will enlarge your faith if you put into practice its words. Let the words sink into your soul and let God love you with an everlasting love.
