5 Tips for Slaying Giants

5 Tips for Slaying Giants

The story of David and Goliath (1 Samuel 17) offers some wonderful principles for slaying our "giants"- things in our lives that seek to destroy us, things like sin, harmful thoughts, discouragement, and attacks from Satan.

We face spiritual battles daily and these principles from the story of David and Goliath can help:

1. Expect negative feedback when you attempt to conquer a giant (17:28-31). Be sure to ignore it! (Read a 1-minute explanation on dealing with doubters here: Don't Listen to Doubters.)

2. Be faithful in the smaller, daily trials so you'll have confidence to defeat the giants (17:34-37). (Read a 1-minute explanation of this "weapon" here: When Little Things are Big Things.)

3. Use your gifts, no matter how insignificant they seem, but be sure to combine them with faith (17:38-40).  Read a 1-minute explanation of this weapon here: Small Stones Kill Giants

4. Respond to the enemy's trash talk with Truth Talk in God's name, not your name (17:41-47). Read a 1-minute explanation of this "weapon" here: Trash Talk - Truth Talk.

5. Be proactive in your faith. Strike first (17:48-49).

If we do these things, God may use Satan's own weapons to defeat him (17:50-51).

  1. Lots if Godly wisdom here. I am sitting in a Hospital with my husband who just underwent cancer surgery to remove a tumor in his esophagus . He also had part of his stomach part of his spleen and all of his pancreas removed. He can't eat or drink until tommorrow and he is struggling. Yhe giant he has to face is huge . He doesn't know Jesus as gus personal savior. That is a great concern for me but I have given it to God and prayer from myself and others . My giant is not to get overwhelmed by his anger and disobediance to Dr.orders.So Lord I have no idea what my stone us except prayer and the knowledge thay God loves him. So I am thankful for your in depth message. It will take a while fir me to soak it all in but I kniw God is a big God and I trust Him to guide me through His Holy Spirit. Use me Lord however You want i regards to my husband. Give ne eyes to see. Ears to hear and a heart of flesh.
    In Jesus name Amen
