And the Philistine said, I defy the armies of Israel this day; give me a man, that we may fight together. When Saul and all Israel heard those words of the Philistine, they were dismayed, and greatly afraid. I Samuel 17:10-11
What giants are in your life? They are speaking over your health. They are speaking over your family. They are speaking over your finances. When we hear their words they cause us to be afraid to live. We want to be free but we can't see beyond their presence in our life. We can ignore the giants but they don't go away. The giants want us to serve them. They want us to be enslaved to their ways.
Goliath never proved he was a worthy champion to Israel. Saul and Israel took his words and believed him. He had the ability to paralyze people through his words. We are paralyzed in fear because we don't want to face giants. Giants have the ability to destroy our lives. We want to live. We want to live in comfort and preserve our life.
We can't avoid the giants anymore. If we die, let us die fighting not hiding. Stop playing it safe. Our kids need us to face our giants. We are not facing giants alone, God is with us. God is before us fighting our battle when we step in the battlefield and partner with Him in faith. When we turn from the giants words to God's word we find love and courage. We have nothing to be afraid of. Anything you are faced with a giant, don't listen to just turn to God. Cast your cares to God and let God give you the victory. Fear comes when we try to fight on our own. When we measure ourselves against the giants we face. When we measure the giants to God we see they are nothing to worry about. Face your giants and believe God will deliver victory to you. He will not let you down but reward you for your faith in Him.
Until next time....
