OVERCOMING GIANTS

"... but the people who know their God will be strong, and take action." Daniel 11:32

It has been said that Christianity is not a playground but a battleground. People who are oblivious of the devices of the devil often allow him to take advantage of their ignorance and laxity. As a child of God, you have been placed above principalities and powers. This takes you more than a notch above the powers of darkness. Hence, you can make boast in the name of the Lord to silence the voice of fear, frustration, sickness, stagnation and every work of darkness. David had to FLAUNT THE NAME OF THE LORD before Goliath. He knew that the power to deliver resides in God's name. And when he proceeded against Goliath, who had been threatening Israel, he reduced him to defeat.

It is out of character for demonic giants to make peace with God's people and keep them out of the harm's way. A case in point is the account of the three Hebrew young men who defied a king's request, mandating every dweller of the kingdom to bow before the king's graven image. Because the young men had a divine identity which they placed above idolatry, they defied the king's order. Even when they were further threatened to comply with the king's order, they stuck to their guns. When the fear of death would have made them to fall short of their devotion to God, they put their lives on the line by demonstrating absolute FAITH IN GOD. In the end, their faith in Jehovah worked out their deliverance and saved their skin from the horror of death.

Finally, Christians who FLOW IN THE FREQUENCY AND POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT are capable of overcoming giants. A graphic illustration of this was Samson, who when under the influence of the Holy Spirit moved against the opposition of God's people. By the power of God at work in him, he went on a killing spree, instilling fear and terror in the heart of God's enemies. If the Spirit of the Living God is not operating in you, it goes without saying that you are vulnerable to the devices of spiritual giants, whose mission is to devour and waste destinies. While Christians that make a practice of quenching God's Spirit through sinful habits, would undermine the work of God's Spirit in their lives to overcome giants and level mountains. Hence, put on the strength of God, flaunt the name of Jesus before that adversary and exhibit the God-kind of faith that overcomes the world. May you not become a prey in the hands of your enemies in Jesus name.
