Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Thursday to you all! This morning, I’m praising God for bringing me through a trying night! You know…sometimes, I think we become so caught up in all the bad that takes place in our lives; that we completely bypass the One who did bring us through it all…so today; I’m giving God a complete heart of praise…Amen!!
As we begin our time together today, I would like to start out by asking you a question. What do you think I mean, when I refer to the giants in our lives? For me…pain attempts to rise up and be the giant that attempts to control my life…always trying to dictate my life and what I can and cannot do. These moments can even make me feel weaker than what I really am…to the place where I feel as if this giant that is standing before me will win in the end.
While thinking on this last night, I was also reminded that when we feed into a problem; this only allows the problem to grow in strength and become a giant…and instead of letting the power of God enter these weak moments; we find that the power of evil has now taken control. Today, we need to stop and ask ourselves this question… “Have we allowed our faith to become the giant that stands before our problems…or have we allowed our problems to be the giant that causes us to wallow beneath a weak faith?
As we continue, I would like to share a Bible verse with you, from I Samuel 17:45…and we read… “Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.”
While thinking back to the time of David and Goliath; we see a young man, named David, who stood up against a Philistine giant, called Goliath. All David had to fight with was a slingshot and a few small stones; but David didn’t focus on this. Instead, he allowed the power of God to enter those stones…and it was God’s power that eventually brought Goliath down to the ground.
We need to realize today; that when God enters a weak moment…the impossible becomes possible…for its only through this powerful God; that the giants we face in life can come tumbling down. One thing we should never do though; is to face these giants alone…and with our own man-made ideas; but rather, we should allow the Lord of hosts to face these giants with us…and when we choose to do this; that is when we will begin to see each giant fall powerless before us.
No matter what giant may be standing before you, just know that they are never too powerful, for a powerful God…and you know what…sometimes God may allow these giants to stick around for a while…for reasons we don’t always understand; but what hope there is…knowing that He has control over every single one of them…that is, when we are willing to let Him have that control over our lives...Amen!!
Well…I have truly enjoyed another great writing from God today! I pray that these words…from His heart to yours will truly help you to let go; that God may have control, over the giants in your lives...Amen!!
As we close our time together, I pray that you will enjoy this day that the Lord has blessed us with…and that you will truly come to experience Him, in a very powerful way! Take good care and I will hope to be with you tomorrow!
Many…many blessings on your Thursday!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
