Prepare For Your Giant

34 But David said to Saul, “Your servant used to keep sheep for his father. And when there came a lion, or a bear, and took a lamb from the flock, 35 I went after him and struck him and delivered it out of his mouth. And if he arose against me, I caught him by his beard and struck him and killed him. 36 Your servant has struck down both lions and bears, and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be like one of them, for he has defied the armies of the living God.” 37 And David said, “The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.” And Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you!” ~ 1 Samuel 17:34-37

There’s a song that says,

I’m calling on the God of David
Who made a shepherd boy courageous
I may not face Goliath but I’ve got my own giants!

O God, my God, I need You
O God, my God, I need You now

See, we all face giants. We may not all face the same giant, but each and every one of us have, are, or will face a giant. And the only way to take down a giant is to first take down the lions and bears. In other words, the giant isn’t our first battle. Our first battle is with something smaller so that we can build our faith. David’s faith was so strong when he got to Goliath because he had already taken down bears and lions, so he knew what his God could, can, and would do for him.

So many of us try to jump ahead to face our giant and end up like the Israelites who cowered in fear before Goliath. We have to start little by little. We have to build our relationship with God so strong that nothing shakes us. And in due time, God will give us the faith, strength, and courage to overcome our giants.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Prepare for Your Giant.
