Message for March 12, 2017 from Pastor Shirley

The Bible text that we will be looking at this morning is a familiar passage taken from 1 Samuel chapter 17. It   is young David against the Philistine, Goliath. The name Goliath means giant but also means to uncover. Goliath represents the many things we face in life whether they are spiritual or physical. God wants us to recognize the giants in our lives and uncover them for what they are.     

    What is your giant? The thing that you cannot see around because it so big and consuming, you see little else but it. It could be debt, it could be illness. A giant could be
relational, someone in your family, your spouse and your marriage.

    The giants that come along in life will try to win over. As we uncover them they will not be as big as the enemy wants you to believe. But like David we can say to the giant, You come to me with a sword, a spear, and a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the LORD of hosts…” 1 Samuel 17:45 David comes against Goliath in the name of the “Lord of Host or the Lord God Almighty!

     God has given us His name – His name which reveals His character and His ways. When facing the Goliaths of life that is where we are to look – who God is and what God is. He is the “The Lord of Host – He is the “Lord God Almighty”. The many names that God has in reference to him is more powerful than any name of the giant’s that come against us in this life.
