1 Samuel 17:48-49 (NLT) As Goliath (giant) moved closer to attack, David quickly ran out to meet him. Reaching into his shepherd’s bag and taking out a stone, he hurled it with his sling and hit the Philistine (giant) in the forehead. The stone sank in, and Goliath (giant) stumbled and fell face down on the ground.
What things in your life feel like giants in front of you that you must defeat before you can move forward? Sometimes when we begin to face giants in our lives, we feel afraid or unable to gain victory over them. We even try to run from it instead of facing it head on. Jesus said in John 16:33 I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on Earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world. Regardless of what we face or how daunting it looks, you will overcome the giants in front of you. Before they fall, you must stand up and face your giants. You too can defeat and be victorious over any giant just as David defeated Goliath. No matter how big the giant is before you, remember that it can be defeated because your God is always bigger than it. Giants will always fall because they are shown to be powerless and inadequate to a God who reigns supreme over all.
Father, thank you for sending your son to overcome this world. Thank you that no matter what I face I can be victorious over it. Reveal to me anything in my life that I have allowed to defeat me. I know now that any giants I face are powerless to You. Give me the wisdom to use what I have to confront any giants in front of me. In Jesus Mighty Name, Amen!
