GIANT KILLER #1 (Opportunity)
Giant Killer (1)
‘So David triumphed over the Philistine.’ 1 Samuel 17:50
1 Samuel 17 is the setting for the story of David and Goliath – the shepherd slays the warrior; the boy conquers the giant. God gives David victory over his giant to inspire us to confront our own giants. Giants can be tangible or intangible: the things we can’t overcome because, gripped by fear, we think we can’t. They can be seemingly unattainable goals, unfinished projects or unfulfilled dreams. A giant is anything or anybody keeping us from being or doing what God wants us to be or do. Giants can be internal or external, real or imagined, physical or emotional. A giant could be an attitude, a habit, a belief, a philosophy or a memory. It could be a person who stands between who we are and who God wants us to be; between where we are and where God wants us to go; between what we believe and what God wants us to believe. Giants have one goal – to stop our progress and prevent us from reaching our destiny.
But giant-killers perceive each battle as an opportunity to turn a negative into a positive. To them conflict is growth, and facing an enemy is what happens before we get to advance. Giants serve to expose hidden strengths, help us measure our growth, and feed our confidence in God. Giant-killers see opportunity in opposition, potential in problems and victory in the shadow of defeat.
And with God’s help we can become a giant-killer.
