Beating the giant

We all have great difficulties, difficult problems of which we think we will never leave, that we will not win, that the giant that is making us war will destroy us, and this keeps us sad and many times without hope, but, today I can tell you something that will be of consolation.

In the Bible each character had his giant, Moses had Pharaoh, Elijah had Jezebel, David had Goliath, Jesus had the scribes and Pharisees. A giant is not only that person of tall stature, but those enemies who want to destroy us, and each of these characters experienced a great trial, however, God never abandoned them and in their most difficult moments He was with them and I know that of that same form will be with each one of us and we will receive the victory.

In the Bible we find a great story and it is that of David and Goliath. Recall that at that time Goliath rose up against the camp of Israel, this was literally a “giant” character and had all the people of Israel cornered, and they also felt hopeless, they believed that they could not win, that they would never come out of that problem, they believed that the end had come. But something we must understand about God is that He always arrives on time, no matter what you are going through, no matter the size of the problem, God is glorified at the time He finds appropriate and we must believe in it, have the faith and the hope that God will move His powerful hand.

The Bible says:

43 He said to David, “Am I a dog, that you come at me with sticks?” And the Philistine cursed David by his gods.

44 “Come here,” he said, “and I’ll give your flesh to the birds and the wild animals!”

45 David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.

1 Samuel 17: 43-45

In the midst of that people who were afraid of the giant, a brave young man called David arose and uttered those glorious words before the giant, and that is that God is always going to glorify Himself at the right moment and this was the moment of Him glorifying Himself through a young in front of all the people of Israel and the Philistines.

Friends, I do not know what your giant is, your problem or the great difficulty you are going through, but I want to tell you that there is a solution in God, there is hope in God and He never arrives late. The great battles are won in our prayer room, having that faith that everything will turn out well and that tomorrow will only be an experience for which God made us pass to help others.

Remember that we serve the God of the squadrons of Israel, the strong and powerful God who never forsakes His children. My prayer is that God strengthens each reader with the power of His strength.

By your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned
Jesus did not come to call the righteous, but sinners

    David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.
    1 Samuel 17: 43-45

    I’m not sure whether some of us recognize that we have a giant in our lives. Sometimes we are struggling against something that makes us suffer, be sad or even pass sleepless night hours thinking about it. Other times we suffer some severe sickness, have some economical problem or there is some family trouble. Maybe there is a giant in our life.

    Today the Minister told us about the Philistine giant which David had fought against in defence of Israel people and how he defeated him.

    David was an elect man, chosen by the Lord to fight Israel’s battles against their enemies, but I want to stop a little and look at what his character was like, according to what the Bible tells us about him.

    Now, when the Philistines fought against king Saul, on yet another occasion that they attacked the people of Israel , David was looking after his father’s sheep. He was the youngest son of Jesse of Bethlehem in Judah, a young handsome man, willing, obedient to his father, courageous to fight against lions or wild animals and kill them in defence of the flock. I think he was a good fellow, but over all his gifts, he had faith, was respectful and trusted in the power of the Lord God of armies in Israel.

    So, when David went to meet his brothers, Goliath, a terrible giant who was fighting there, challenged Israel to send somebody from Israel to fight against him, and Saul called David and he offered to fight against the giant, who looked down on him.

    David drew up to him in battle in the name of Hosts, the God of Israel.
    “Then said David to the Philistine, You come to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to you in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.”
    1 Samuel 17:45

    David fought against the giant Goliath not with an army, nor a sword, he struggled with him with a sling and five stones, and, above all, it was the Spirit of God who guided to him.

    It is a good example for us to learn that the power of the Spirit of God, by an angel or the way He determines, can defend us against giants of difficulties and trials from the Lord in our lives. We can beat them by faith and fervent prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, who is our refuge and defence in tribulations.

    May the Lord God of armies, our king, protect us against the Devil, the enemy of our lives and souls. In God we trust. He will do it so. Amen
