One of my favorite stories growing up as a young girl in Sunday School was the story of David and Goliath. As the story unfolds, we see that David has more than a heart for God, the man has heart. When he slays the giant Goliath with a slingshot and 5 smooth stones in his bag, he proves that winning the battle is always about how you view your target.
David isn’t impressed as others are with the physical stature of Goliath because he is not looking at Goliath with eyes of fear. David is viewing Goliath with spiritual eyes. As long as he looked upon his mammoth situation with the eyes of God, he had no doubt that victory was his.
The thing that I have come to learn about the giants in our lives is, they never show up at the best time; they show up at the appointed time. And although they show up, everyone is not equipped to fight them off.
Young David teaches us a very powerful lesson in 1 Samuel 17. The first lesson is that you must begin to look at every situation in your life with spiritual eyes. The second is, you aren’t going to win the battle putting on someone else’s armor; you have got to use what works best for you. Lastly, this battle isn’t yours, it’s the Lords.
The giant many of you are facing right now is fear. When you keep yourself in the presence of God, fear cannot overtake you, your family, your country, or your life. Giants really aren’t as powerful as they seem, but you must get clear to see this.
The signs have never steered us wrong, but fear can seem like a mighty big giant to slay. During this time, I want you to spend less time snacking in the kitchen, and more time feasting on the word of God.
There is no giant, no virus, no epidemic, or pandemic bigger than our God. Every Goliath needs David. Suit up. Study up. Pray up and fast up. The bigger they are, the harder they fall. Let’s get ready to slay some giants.
