THE GIANTS CAN BE DEFEATED
Giants indeed can be Defeated. For With God nothing shall be impossible. David conquered and went on conquering because the lord is with him. I love the way the chronicler took care to record each successive battle and how every giant was defeated.
We too must take cognisance of all the battles the lord has won for us. Our prayer journal is a good place to keep these reminders. It goes a long way to strengthen us in the face of new challenges.
The Ammonites and the Philistines had been a constant thorn for the Israelites. Eventually today was the day of their defeat. Their glorious crown was taken down and all their mighty warriors defeated.
We must take care to not loose faith on the day of battle. The book of Proverbs says:
If you’re are weak on the day of adversity, then your strength is really small. Proverbs 24:10
When we first come to Christ, he gives us a welcome home miracle. Usually all our problems get instant solutions and prayers receive instant answers. As we begin to mature he allows us to chew some bones. This is the time when some draw back. Unfortunately this is also the time of growth and development that many miss.
Beloved to everything there is a time. There is time got peace and time for war. However we do not war against Flesh and blood but against principalities and powers and rulers of this dark age. Consequently our weapons are not carnal but mighty through God. Therefore be strong and courageous. Put on the whole amour of God for the battle ahead. (Ephesians 6:10-18)
Position yourself so that God can come down and fight for you. Always remember the battle is not yours but God’s.
