All of us at one time or another have been through a struggle, a hardship or trial. But it’s the “giants” that stand in our path that can be the most damaging. They can come in any form such as people, situations, habits and even physical items. These “giants” can tear us down, destroy our confidence and completely convince us we are nothing. If we let them they can control us to the point of total defeat. But as a Child of God we can not let this happen and God himself tells us many times he has already given us Victory.
Deuteronomy 20:4 – For the LORD your God is he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.
John 16:33 – These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world
1 Corinthians 15:57 – But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Exodus 23:20 Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared
Deuteronomy 31:8 The LORD is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.
We just have to accept Victory and use it. We have all the tools needed to defeats those “giants” just as David did. Who would ever know that a boy could take down such a adversary with just a few rocks and a sling. God knew! It was part of his plan the whole time this illustrates to us that nothing is too big or too scary to have Victory over. If a small boy can kill a giant with one shot we can tell the giant to move and it will be moved.
It all boils down to Faith it doesn’t have to be a large amount of Faith, it isn’t a contest, you can have the smallest amount of Faith even as small as mustard seed and you can tell a Mountain to move and it will.
Matthew 17:20 – And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
God gives us the ultimate weapon His Word the very thing that spoke existence into place, The Word of God. More powerful than any two edge sword, so powerful in the last days Mountains will crumble at the sound of it. Our other weapon is Prayer
Philippians 4:6 – Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
John 15:7 – If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
1 Thessalonians 5:17 – Pray without ceasing
Really the only thing that keeps these “giants” in our path is us, we fail to recognize that we already have Victory in everything we do. It is easier for us to accept defeat then to fight and this makes us weak and lazy. But God uses these trials and storms to build us to make us stronger and for us to share our testimony with others and if we don’t fight we have no testimony. Then the Devil wins and we go through these trials for no reason but defeat.
Lord Heavenly Father, I come to you Today Lord to ask that the person reading this who is struggling with Giants in her path Lord that she learns to lean on you Lord, to come to you and pray for Faith and Strength that only you can provide. Lord I pray she sees the David inside of her and finds that voice that tells that mountain to crumble and becomes stronger for your Glory in the Mighty Name of Jesus Amen
