Facing Our Giants


"The Lord said to Joshua, 'Do not be afraid of them, because by this time tomorrow I will hand them over to Israel, slain'" (Josh.11:6).

It is said that our life is much like a parade. As spectators, we get to see only one part of the parade at a time. God is viewing the parade from above and gets to see our parade from beginning to end...It is important for Joshua to conquer the land of Canaan and get the children of Israel settled there. Much will happen as the future unfolds, but God has a long-range plan. There must be a town called Bethlehem where the birth of Jesus will take place. There must be a hill of Calvary where Jesus will die. There must be a thriving Jerusalem so that the church can have its beginning. Through the Bible, we can see this parade from God's perspective and how his plan is carried out. The Israelites faced mighty foes, even a giant, and defeated them with God's help.. We also face our giants from time to time and Jesus will help us to defeat them so that we can live in peace. "He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken" (Ps.62:6). God wants us to trust in him and then use our own ingenuity. If we are to be leaders for Him, we must engender the qualities of faith and courage. Our Lord will protect us from our giants through prayer, the Holy Spirit, the Word and through fellowship with one another. Through our faith, we get to see what our eyes cannot...The Lord helping us to face our giants and coming out victorious...As our parade marches on, we can have a faith in the parts that haven't passed by yet, and a glorious ending...

Have a great day....Let His light shine through you.... Love mark Phil.4:11
