What is your giant?  Whether it’s our finances, our health, or our marriage, we’ve all faced that one insurmountable battle that felt like it was too much to bear.   When it comes to giants, there is one lesson in the Bible that can equip us to defeat any challenge that comes our way,   That is the story of David and Goliath.  The qualities God instilled in David that enabled him to succeed will work for you, too.

STAND IN FAITH-You might face opposition when you start communicating what God has put in your heart, but you need to take this stance like David did.  He might have been inexperienced and small compared to Goliath, but he knew God had equipped him to overcome.

BE FAITHFUL WITH THE  LITTLE–Had David not been faithful with the few sheep the Lord had given him, he never would have been able to stand up to Goliath.  Many want to win against the giants when the grandstands are full, but few will be faithful in the little things God gives them when no one is watching.

PURSUE YOUR ENEMIES UNTIL THEY CAN’T COME BACK– If you read the whole story, the Philistines didn’t flee when Goliath first went down.  They were at a far distance and didn’t know exactly what had happened.  Goliath could have tripped, or maybe he was just wounded and would get back up and win yet.  But when David cut off his head and held it up, all doubt was removed, and the enemy fled.

People don’t like to face giants, but David wouldn’t have been a hero if he had slain a midget.  The giants in your life are actually great opportunities for God to show Himself strong on your behalf.  David’s victory over Goliath catapulted him into his destiny.  Are you ready to face your giant so you can be catapulted into yours?
