Face Those Giants

Noting is too big for God. Nothing.
Did you know the Lord will save and protect us against our giants (problems)? Yep, that's right. 

Those giants may look like hard times, pain, heartache, depression, sadness, anger, and I can go on and on, but you get my point. God will protect us against those things that come in our lives to cause havoc and chaos. He'll protect us against those giants -- those problems, circumstances, and challenges that come to destroy us. 

We have to face them though.

We must fight. We can't cower down and let those giants defeat us. We can't put our heads under the blankets. We must fight our giants head on. It doesn't matter how big those Goliaths are. If David didn't face him, Goliath would have continued tormenting people and coming for them. He would have kept coming bolder and harder, because he thought nobody would ever fight him. He didn't think he would ever be taken out.

David's giants may have looked different than ours, but giants are giants and attacks are attacks. When we fight our giants, they will eventually fall. Just like David, we have to talk to the Lord God and He will tell us what to do. He will give us strategies and plans.

And we will win. Fight that giant. Fight that problem. 

When everyone was afraid to fight Goliath, David stepped up. He told the commander: 'I can take this guy, because I used to keep sheep for my father. And when a lion or a bear came and took a lamb from the flock, I chased him down, attacked him and delivered that lamb out of his mouth. And if he tried to attack me, I caught him by his beard and killed him. The LORD saved me from the lion and bear and He will protect me from this giant, Goliath.' 

So, way before David decided to fight Goliath, he was used to giants, he was used to the attacks and he was used to winning. His attitude was like, 'I got this giant, been there done that.' David knew God had his back and his thinking was, another giant?

Not a problem.

I feel free

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. How are you feeling today? What kind of head space have you been in lately? I ask, because I'm just wondering if anybody feels like me -- free like me. Free as an eagle. Free as can be. That's right, out with doing business the old stale way and in with a fresh new operation. It's a shifting happening in the atmosphere of Sharon's life and I'm moving on to the big and awesome things God has for me. What  do you say for yourself? What are you speaking over your life? What it is for you?  For me, I am no longer afraid to go out in the deep end. I am no longer afraid to fly higher, I am no longer concerned about what I have or do not have, and I am no longer concerned about what anybody thinks or says. Who the heck cares anymore? I don't. Because God tells me he doesn't give me a spirit of fear or timidity ( 2 Timothy 1 :7) , but He gives me a spirit of love, confidence, power, self-control, and

God is Real

I've often had conversations about how we know God is real, about how we know His spirit lives, about how we know we are spiritual beings in human form (not the other way around). The answers lie in the beginning starting with the living  spirit of God and how the world began. God is Real. He's a living breathing spirit, an organism.  God is love . I often wonder how it is that some people think the opposite though. That the world began with a bang, a big bang, a black hole, whatever else they want to call it. The question I always raise to such a "theory" is, how was love created? How was flesh, blood, bones, or our souls created? What I mean by soul is that part of us that perceives "silently" what we do, think, believe, feel, and our mind, our will, our intellect, our emotions. Science or no bang or hole of any sort can explain that. If science can indeed come up with an explanation that does not include God, then let me know. In fact, let us all kno

Encourage yourself in God

Do you know that no matter what you may be going through, you can encourage yourself in the Lord? And the Lord will give you the strength and power you need in order to get through? Yes, He will do it. He did it for David when David probably found it difficult to understand how he would endure. But, guess what? God was with him and God blessed him too. There are so many things I love about David. One of those things is that he encouraged himself in the Lord beyond the challenging circumstances he found himself in ( 1 Samuel 30 :6). When it seemed all was lost, David didn't give up. When everyone turned their backs on him, he stayed with his vision. When his family and community were taken, he went forth with what God told him to do. David never left the Lord in spite of his circumstances. I love that he did the opposite of what some of us would do, he stayed with God, he didn't run away from God. And he didn't try to take matters into his own hands. He ran towards th
