When it comes to giant-problems

A champion went out from the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath." 1 Samuel 17:4 (NKJV) When it comes to giant-problems there are solutions if we look closely!!!!

Problem number (1): Their size can intimidate you. And it doesn't help when everybody around you, including your leader, is running for cover.

Solution 1: This is when you need to recall the victories of your past: Red Sea-sized ones, Jericho Wall-sized ones. How big is your God?

Problem Number (2) Their words can cause you to doubt. "When Saul and all Israel heard these words of the Philistine, they were...greatly afraid" (1Sa 17:11 NKJV). Words like, "The tumor's malignant, the company's down-sizing, I don't love you any more, our child is hooked on drugs, the bank is foreclosing."

Solution: How do you handle such words? By turning to the living, life-changing Word of God which transcends all circumstances and trumps all opinions. "The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever" (Isa 40:8 NKJV).

Problem Number(3) A small opening and a well protected giant. It was said Goliath could throw his spear half the length of a football field, so that's probably how far David was from him. Furthermore, Goliath had body armor protecting him from head to toe, except for a small opening between his eyes and his forehead. That's what David aimed for.

Solution 3: When you ask God for a solution, it may come as a small opening rather than the size of half a football field! When He shows it to you, trust Him to get you through it. God's response to you is not designed to increase your sense of comfort, but to build your confidence in Him. That way you'll not only be able to handle this giant, but the ones waiting for you in the future.

You are a giant killer, Have faith in God!!!!
