Giants are INSISTENT

What do giants look like? From the story of David and Goliath in 1 Samuel 17 we are looking at three descriptions of giants then and now. We saw in the last post that giants seem INSURMOUNTABLE. Today we see that giants are also INSISTENT. In other words - they never go away!

Goliath the great giant of the Philistines did not simply make his taunting speech in which he challenged Israel to send out a warrior to fight him on one occasion. He did it every day - and not just every day. He came down into that valley every morning and every evening for 40 consecutive days. Every morning when Saul's forces awakened - Goliath was there. Every night as they lay their heads down in their tents - Goliath was still there. At least 80 times they had to watch him and listen to him. It appeared that this giant was not going away anytime soon.

So are you facing a giant in your life and/or ministry? Is their a person or a problem that seems to be completely insurmountable and that has become the very first thing you think about every morning and the last thing that is on your mind when you crawl into bed each night? Are you facing a giant that seems like it is never going to leave? Tomorrow we will look at one final description of giants and then we will begin to uncover the 5 steps you must take to face those giants in your life and ministry.
