Remember the Titans

Inspired by the movie Remember the Titans
starring Denzel Washington

1 Samuel 30:6
And David was greatly distressed;
for the people spake of stoning him,
because the soul of all the people was grieved,
every man for his sons and for his daughters:
but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.

Remember the Titans

Whenever you feel like giving up..... remember the Titans
Whenever you feel like hope is gone..... remember the Titans

Remember the pain that Abraham felt when God asked him to sacrifice his son Isaac....
God provided a ram when he was about to kill the child. Abraham went on to be the "father of many nations"
Remember the disappointment Jacob felt when Laban cheated him on his wages and the one he wanted to marry.....
Remember the reason why Joseph was thrown into the prison..... He was falsely accused of raping Potiphar's wife.
God used that situation to make Joseph second in command to pharaoh.
Remember Moses..... when he led the Israelites in going out of egypt..... When the Egyptians are about to overtake them,
Moses stood firm and eventually divided the sea through God's power.
Remember Joshua and Caleb..... 10 spies told negative things, but only the two of them said good reports.
Remember David when people thought of stoning him..... He did not give up, and soon became king.
Remember Daniel in the Lion's den..... He was there just because he was praying before God his father.
Remember Shadrach, Meshack and Abednego..... who were thrown to the fiery furnace just because they wouldn't bow down to other Gods.
Remember Mordecai..... and how Haman hated him so much that he made a gallows to hang him there.
Remember Elijah and how fearful he was when Jesebel planned to kill him....
Remember Job..... and the pain and affliction on his body..... because he feared God.
Remember the trials, sufferings and disappointments that Paul endured.....
Remember how Stephen died.....

Whenever you are down and no one seems to care.....
Remember...... the Titans of faith went through similar situations as you are.
