“And David said to Saul, ‘Let no man’s heart fail because of him: thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine.'”1 Samuel 17:32
All of us face “giants” from time to time. These “giants” try to do the same thing to us that Goliath did to the army of Israel- intimidate and bring fear. When the giants come we have to make a choice… are we going to let them make us afraid or stand up to them through the power of the Lord? David made the choice to not look at the size of the giant, but at the size of His God. So instead of running away in fear, he went out to meet his foe.
You can’t run from your giants, you have to face them. If you keep running from them, they will keep taunting you, and you will not have any peace. They will be out there every morning waiting for you, just like Goliath was there every morning… “in their face”. If your knees are weak because of the giant that keeps oppressing you, if you are feeling the urge to run, if you are wanting to go and hide somewhere from it, the word to you this morning is the same one that Davis spoke to Saul, “Let no man’s heart fail because of him.” Actually, it’s your word from the Lord… Don’t let your heart fail because of it. Because the Lord is with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you. You aren’t facing it alone, “Lo, I am with you always.” The Lord will fight your battle for you just like He did for David if you will put your trust and confidence in Him instead of fleeing in fear. The Lord hasn’t given you a spirit of fear, but power, love and a sound mind. Do what David did, look at the size of your God instead of the size of your giant. When you do, you’ll discover that your God is bigger. If the earth is His footstool, then in proportion, how big is that giant now? Besides, if God was big enough and powerful enough to bring down David’s giant, He’s still big enough and powerful enough to bring down yours today…. He hasn’t changed. So, be strong in the Lord and the power of His might, because God in you is greater than any giant.
Have a blessed day. Don’t run from the giants, stand and face them…and remember you aren’t facing them alone… the Lord is with you.
