The word, ‘giant’, can be used in many ways and has many applications. In this brief post, I’m using it to describe those things in your life which cause you to feel helpless to destroy.
What, or who, is YOUR giant? A giant is something or someone that you perceive as overpowering… overwhelming… unconquerable. The most famous ‘giant’ of all is Goliath from Scripture. As HUGE as he was, that’s how small David was beside him. We all know what happened. Little tween David used just one smooth stone to knock him down so that he could kill him. David had the faith to know that he could conquer anything, as long as God was with Him. He knew the Lord would always have his back – no matter what. You say that David took 5 smooth stones with him – just in case? He did take 5 stones with him; however, the other stones were to kill each of Goliath’s 4 brothers, in case he had to defend himself. He knew that all he would need would be the one stone for each because when you yield to God, God conquers.
With God ALL things are possible.
As is the case with just about every person in an addiction, the giant is your drugs or alcohol. In the many years of my former addiction, my giant was my drugs. I just gave in and gave up that I was unable to fight this giant because of the very real fact that I was dumbed down. I nearly lost the fight in March of 2007, when I had a near death experience from the massive accidental overdose temporarily took my mind and nearly took my life. It wasn’t until I was fighting for my life in the CCU of a hospital, that I realized Jesus was the only way to live in order to never use drugs again! I lived and was victorious over the death of what was my giant. God was on my side and had my back because I was willing to let Him in. I only needed one smooth stone!
This is NOT rocket science. It’s all available in your own Back Yard!
Why do I share my private life when I was once in addiction? It’s all in the two verses below:
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
