As we kicked off the new “Life of David / Defeating Our Giants” series over the weekend, Pastor Ray shared a Christmas story that confirmed this truth: God works in ways that we can’t even imagine! This is a perfect example of how God “connects the dots” to see His will be done in and through His people. It gives us the faith to trust, that why should we fear when God’s here?
