Giant – Killers – Part 2

“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. Luke 16:10

Observe: 1) Giant-killers don’t start out as giant-killers! David was a meek musician, humble shepherd, an overlooked son. Faithfulness was his advantage – faithfulness in his talent, faithfulness with his father’s sheep, and faithfulness to God. By becoming master over the small things, he became master over the large things. Faithfulness is a common characteristic of uncommon spiritual achievers. Matthew started as a tax collector; Peter as a fisherman; Elisha as a farmer; Jesus as a carpenter. Have you ever considered that Jesus spent more years as a carpenter than He did as a preacher? He was faithful in little things. God never called an inactive or non-productive person. Every candidate had started something before they became a giant-killer. Giant-killers don’t start out as giant-killers…but giant-killers start! 2) Giant-killers know that the reward is always greater than the risk! Life rewards risk and action, but Satan will whisper words of fear and anxiety in your ears to minimize the reward and magnify the risk. Yet the truth remains, that ‘God is a Rewarder’ of diligent seekers (see Hebrews 11:6). You must believe the promise is greater than the problem, the objective is greater than the objections, and God is greater than your giant. The belief that ‘God is greater’ is the essence of a faith that persists in the face of fear. Fear is Satan’s weapon to paralyze you; faith is God’s weapon to mobilize you. So depend on God, challenge the giant, and join the ranks of God’s giant-killers.

Prayer
Heavenly Father, help me remember that Your promise is always greater than my problem! In Jesus’ Name, Amen

  1. The sentence: Fear is Satan’s weapon to paralyze you; faith is God’s weapon to mobilize you. It really struck me in the face this morning. It’s so true! Thank you for sharing this today!
