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

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

God blesses whomever he wants to bless, whenever he wants to bless them

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa
