How to defeat your giant
‘The battle is the Lord’s.’ 1 SAMUEL 17:47
One day a soldier, charged with fleeing from the enemy was brought before Alexander the Great. Alexander the Great asked him, ‘What’s your name?’ Dropping his head, he replied, ‘Alexander.’ Alexander the Great grabbed him by the shoulders and said, ‘Soldier, change your conduct or change your name!’ You have been called to live a life worthy of the One whose name you carry. Regardless of whether the giant you face is addiction, resentment, fear, lust, pride, envy or anger, you must realise: 1) You’re not unique. Your temptations ‘are no different from what others experience’ (1 Corinthians 10:13 NLT). Goliath wasn’t always a giant; he was fed and nurtured until he became one. Our giants are usually little sins we overlook and indulge until they assume a life of their own and come back to haunt us. 2) You can’t do it alone. Your giant will defeat you anytime you tackle him in your own strength. David told Goliath, ‘This is the Lord’s battle, and he will give you to us’ (1 Samuel 17:47 NLT). You need divine help to overcome old habits and establish new behaviours. So, declare with Paul, ‘Christ…gives me strength’ (Philippians 4:13 NLT). 3) You must confront your giant head-on. The Bible says: ‘As Goliath moved closer to attack, David quickly ran…to meet him’ (1 Samuel 17:48 NLT). Don’t run away, don’t try to negotiate, don’t compromise and don’t excuse. Force your giant out into the light and don’t let him back into your life. Establish boundaries and make yourself accountable. Stay out of the wrong company. Above all, don’t look at God in the light of your giant, look at your giant in the light of God.

  1. Goliath wasn’t always a giant, you just scared me girl! so bad habits start small, gotta be careful from now on.

    Above all, don’t look at God in the light of your giant, look at your giant in the light of God. Banange awo sitegede, tunyonyole

  2. wow… i so like this! i like the part of ‘Change your attitude or change your name’… wow! its like God’s given us this amazing power through Christ and we are Christians yet many times we walk around with our heads hung, looking badly beat by the devil! anyway, i like!

    1. @ The Emrys, thanks for explaining, question is, Carsozy have you understood?
      @ B2B I could use all the help I can get, that bbq is on, pass the word around πŸ™‚
      @ Carsozy… God is everywhere and is undefeated like that, his view is a bigger and better one than ours, that wee giant seems like a ‘walk in the park’ to God, so rather than looking at the giant from our own view, which is meters below the giant – look at the giant from God’s amazing heights
      @ Beloved, glad you picked out something
