"We all will face giants at one time or another in our lives. By giants, I am speaking of what seem to be insurmountable problems and issues. We try to fell these giants, but often they seem to only grow stronger with the passing of time. It could be a giant of fear. Or it might be a giant of some type of personal sin that you fall into again and again. It might be the sin of pride or envy or gluttony or lust or something else.
"In a related way, your giant might be one of addiction, something that has a grip on your life. Then again, it could be a giant of threat that is taunting you today. Someone has slandered you. A lawsuit has been filed against you. Maybe there is even a threat against your very life.
"Or it might be a different kind of giant altogether, like an unbelieving spouse or a prodigal child. You have prayed for them. You have asked the Lord to reach them, yet they seem to become more hardened by sin as the years pass by. You find yourself wondering how you will ever overcome this.
"So how do we deal with giants? We find the answer in the Old Testament account of David and Goliath. Most of us are familiar with the story."

The Story of David and Goliath, 1 Samuel 17
Never run from your giants. You cannot hide from them. Give your giants to the Lord, this is His battle. Never negotiate with a giant either, for if it is sent by Satan to tempt you, the evil one will win the debate. Face your giants head on. Understand you have incredible power standing right beside you in the presence of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Attack your giants! Quickly, just as David attacked Goliath. Force them into the light of day. They are not going to go away until you turn to face them directly. Faith. Calm. Power in the name of Jesus Christ!
