What are your Giants?

What are your Giants?
Author: Pat Aman

I pray you will have a wonderful week. I already thank Father God my week will be wonderful. Last week started off a doozy. But, I am feeling 100% better and stronger even today.

I miss being able to fellowship together with my brothers and sisters in Christ. But, I know starting tomorrow, I will be back, running the race that is set before me.

Let’s take a moment to talk about giants that we may have in our lives. Sometimes we let things overwhelm us and not let God take care of them. Just as I kinda let things overwhelm even me last weekend. Making decisions, even positive ones can be a little much for us all as we get older in age.

I wonder if David even felt afraid for just a second of the Philistine giant, Goliath, in his life. Goliath who was three to four times the height of David. He was wearing at least 278 pounds of Armor besides his own big body which could have weighed 400-600 pounds, being well over 13 feet tall. He wore a bronze helmet, bronze leg plates, and a bronze javelined was strapped to his back. In his huge hand, he carried a spear. The point alone possibly weighed about twenty pounds. Goliath had a armor barrier who bare his shield that walked before him.

Goliath told David to come here and I will give your flesh to the birds of the air and the beasts of the field. David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with a sword, spear and javelin, but I come in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.” I

1 Samuel 17:44 “Come here,” he said, “and I’ll give your flesh to the birds of the air and the beasts of the field!

Before this, young David had taken his staff in hand, stooped down, and picked up five smooth stones and placed them in a pouch.
1 Samuel 17:40 Then he took his staff in his hand, chose five smooth stones from the stream, put them in the pouch of his shepherd’s bag and, with his sling in his hand, approached the Philistine. With a Shepherd’s staff in one hand and a sling in the other he approached the giant. With one stone He flung the stone, it hit Goliath in the head and killed him.

The key to this scripture is He came in the name of the Lord.

What are the giants in your life?

How can God help you overcome them?

I believe it is good not only to pray, but to turn to His Word for the answers. There are directions and power in prayer and God’s Word.

Whatever these giants are in our lives, we must not run from them. We must face them head-on as David did with Goliath. Put on your spiritual armor and stand firm, unafraid, trusting God for strength.

The exciting thing about all this is when we put on the full armor of God and obey Him, then we can stand back, call TIMBERRRR– and watch the giant fall!

“God has given us the armor to dress in daily. So put it on and watch the giants in your life fall.” Pastor Pat Aman

Yes, some of us need to learn how to face our giants. Some of us need to run towards our problems and stop running away from them. Some of us need to introduce our Goliaths to our Father God.

Please realize Father God stands ready to battle with you. Yes, the same Father God who enabled David to kill Goliath.

Today, talk to Father God about your Goliaths. Then confidently move towards those obstacles, knowing the Father God stands with you, and has gone before you to prepare the way.
