Everyone faces giants in their lives. There isn’t a person one who hasn’t faced the giants of adversity, oppression, or misfortunes. All of us have been cornered and have had to look at these giants straight in the eyes. So what do we do? Do we give up and allow the giants to defeat us? Or do we stand up against the giants, and with tenacity, perseverance, and the anointing, and we defeat them?

Many of us look at the story of David and Goliath and we immediately think the giant had the upper hand. Here Goliath is bigger, and has better armor and weapons. Yet, listen to this…Eitan Hirsch, a ballistics expert with the Israeli Defense Forces, recently did a series of calculations showing that a typical sized stone hurled by an expert slinger at a distance of thirty five meters would have hit Goliath’s head with the stopping power of today’s handgun. Here is David who came into that fight with the odds in his favor. In other words, Goliath brought a spear to a gun fight. It wasn’t fair…for Goliath I mean.

Listen, quit giving up and in to these giants in your life. Stand up to them, and use the weapons God has given you. If you do, you will be victorious!
