Do you remember the Old Testament story of David and Goliath? Goliath, a champion Philistine who was nine feet & nine inches tall, was harassing, intimidating and challenging the Israelite Army for at least ONE person to stand up against him. And he continued this for 40 days. There was no brave soul in sight who was willing to stand up against Goliath.
Not until David came along.
David looked at him and said, "You come at me with sword & spear, but I come at you in the name of the Lord Almighty..." And we've heard how the story ends.
We all have giants in our lives. These giants are blocking our progress, they're holding us back, they look us in the face where ever we go. They are BIG GIANTS, they stir up FEAR, they steal our WORTH and they make us COMPLACENT.

Watch the message below from the weekend.
1 Samuel 17:48-49 "As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. Reaching into his bag and taking a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground."
The "giants" we face feel huge... they are huge. And defeating the giants in our lives isn't dependent on our own strength. Just look at the story of David and Goliath... Here we see the power of an unlikely hero. And that hero isn't David.
The hero is Jesus.
The giants are defeated in our lives when we allow the power of JESUS to work through us. After all, he defeated the ultimate giant: sin & death.
What you're battling might be big... but it's not bigger than Jesus.
