I live with Giants. Or should I say Giants live with me. Yes, every day I am facing some Giant issue or colossal problem that seems like an impossibility to overcome. Most of the Giants live in my head (the battlefield.) Many Giants never make it out of my head they just re-surface from time to time whenever I am confronted with people or situations that seem impossible, that is when the Giants rear their ugly heads and the battle begins. Anxious thoughts, insecurities and fears play over and over like a video in my mind reminding me of failures and battles that I have lost in the past. The Giants always seem bigger when they are in our minds because that is where the battles begin.


Some days I feel like a Grasshopper living in a land of Giants! {LOSER MENTALITY}In Numbers 13, The LORD instructed Moses“Send spies into the land I am giving to Israel; send one leader from each of the twelve tribes.” The following is the report from ten of the twelve leaders: “There we saw the Giants; and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.” Numbers 13:33 Notice “we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.”THE ENEMY SEES US AS WE SEE OURSELVES! HOW DO YOU SEE YOURSELF? WINNER OR LOSER? VICTORIOUS OR DEFEATED?I must remember who I am in Christ and who Christ is in me!If Jesus lives in my heart then; “Greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world” 1John4:4No matter how big the Giant seems, God is bigger! I said; “GOD IS BIGGER!”“What seems impossible to man is possible with God.” Luke 18:27On days when I feel like I’m a grasshopper in a land of giants, I will tell the giants to Shut-up and I will ”SUIT UP.” I will put on my big girl boots and my Armor Battle gear. “Put on the whole armor of God.” Ephesians 6:10I will not shrink back or run away, but I will stand tall when I am “FAITHING THE GIANTS!” FAITHING- My faith in action. If I want something different , I have to BELIEVE and  DO something different! It’s a FAITH THING!“Faith that does nothing is dead.”James 2:26


Now let’s hear what the other two spies Caleb and Joshua had to say when they returned from exploring the same land.  But Caleb reassured the people as they stood before Moses.Numbers 13:30“Let us go up at once and possess it,” he said “for we are well able to conquer it!”  {WINNER MENTALITY}Gotta love that Caleb! Keep in mind he is in his eighties and perkier than a rutting Buck!Caleb has no problem “FAITHING THE GIANTS”  he has no fear because he knows the LORD is with them. He is suited up and ready to go!”Only do not rebel against the Lord. And do not be afraid of the people of the land, because we will devour them. Their protection is gone, but the LORD is with us. Do not be afraid of them.” Numbers 14:9We will devour them.” In other words,we will eat the enemy for lunch! Joshua and Caleb saw the enemy different than the other spies. In their eyes the enemy was a Loser- a tiny grasshopper that they saw crushed and defeated. Joshua and Caleb saw themselves as Winners with God. They were Giants in their Faith! Remember what I said earlier? “THE ENEMY SEES US AS WE SEE OURSELVES!”


So when you have a grasshopper day like I do, whether you are “FAITHING THE GIANTS” in your head or they are standing right in front of you, don’t run from the giants! Don’t be afraid, don’t be dismayed! If you are Fed up then Get up. Suit up.Gear up.Cheer up. Rise up. Pray up. LOOK UP! Tell the enemy to Wake up, Shut-up, Listen up because his Time is up! AMEN. Whew! Glory to God that’s good stuff! Somebody write that down!“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”  Joshua 1:9“For the Lord your God is he who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies, to give you the victory.” Deuteronomy 20:4“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our LORD Jesus Christ.” 

1 Corinthians 15:57

WHO AND WHAT ARE THE GIANTS IN YOUR LIFE TODAY?  ARE YOU FACING THE GIANTS OR ARE YOU FAITHING THE GIANTS? WRITE DOWN YOUR GIANTS. SPEAK THE TRUTH THE WORD OF GOD TO THE GIANTS. NOW GIVE THE GIANTS TO GOD.THE GIANTS ARE ONLY AS BIG AS WE MAKE THEM!GOD IS ALWAYS BIGGER! AMEN.

HALLELUJAH! 

PRAISE THE LORD AND SHARE THE GOOD NEWS!
