"And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight."
(Numbers 13:33 KJV)
The "giants" in the Scripture above were seen by all 12 Jewish spies but 2 of them also saw Our Awesome God and knew they could win. The other 10 men just saw the giants and were afraid and refused to fight them. So sometimes it is a matter of perception as to what you see and sometimes God has put those "giants" there for you to see them be overcome and to test your faith in Him. The Israelites did conquer those giants, but a different generation of men defeated the human giants with God.
"Giants" are found everywhere in life for they are the stumbling blocks of our life and test our faith in God. They could be our family or our fellow employees or our neighbors. They could be our habits, or they could just be the amount of faith we have and so they could be us. But they will "eat us alive" if we don't overcome them with Our Awesome God to help us. We always need to be sure God will help. The truth is, we find the "giants" in our way even when we are serving the Lord. It is also true that, when we are serving the Lord, the "giants" usually can’t stop us unless we let them, for God is with us.
We need faith in Our Awesome God and what He wants, to overcome these "giants" and keep working for the Lord. In order to do our best, we need someone to encourage us and keep us listening to what God wants. He wants us to lean on Him and allow Him to show us how He can sweep those "giants" out of our lives and increase our faith in Him as we do His will. Your faith in Him should be always increasing until in heaven you will have COMPLETE faith in Our Awesome God for everything and our "giants" will not exist at all!
God helps us overcome "giants"! LWBC is a loving church who tries to live by Biblical principles while encouraging all its members. Join us for church in the Sanctuary this coming Sunday at 10:30 AM.
