Facing Your Giants: From Goliath to Gilboa
Verse: 2 Samuel 1:17–1:25
A Giant is anything that stands between you and becoming all that God has created you to be. When facing a Giant, we have a few choices: Run away, Surrender to the Giant, or Face the Giant and learn what God intends through the circumstances.
God is not the author of every circumstance or temptation in our lives, but He has the power to re-intend that circumstance, to repurpose it for our good. He uses every Giant that we face to move us toward the future He has planned for us and give us hope. We don’t rejoice for suffering, but we learn to rejoice in suffering. Suffering produces endurance; endurance produces character; and character produces hope. Just remember…God’s got this. He will provide the solution. God is bigger than our Giant.
