Don't Run From Your Giants

Apr 30, 2023

Everybody has giants in their life. We're not talking about super tall people this week. We're talking about those things in your life that feel so big all you wanna do is run away. The things that scare you, or make you sad, or make you angry, and make you feel small.

How do you hide from those things? Playing video games? Talking to your friends? Scrolling on social media? Watching tv?

God doesn't want us to run from our giants but face them with Him! He will walk with and fight for you.

Nothing is too big for God! Not only will he fight for you but he's given you all the tools you need! The Armor of God! The "Belt of Truth" for those giants that tell you lies that tear you down. The "Breastplate of Righteousness" to protect your heart when the giant in your life is sin. "Shoes of Peace" when your'e feeling nervous or scared. "Shield of Faith" to protect you from the harmful hurtful attacks of the enemy. "Helmet of Salvation" to protect your mind from bad thoughts. "Sword of the Spirit" which is the word of God. The bible! When we know the scriptures we have weapon to fight those giants in our life with God.

Finally , we should pray. Prayer is so important and it's not hard! It's not saying super fancy words perfectly, it's talking to God. It's as simple as saying "Dear God, I'm feeling scared/angry/sad/alone right now and I need your help, Amen." You can tell God everything and he's always wanting to listen. Inviting God into your life is the best way to face those giants. So don't run from your giants face them with God!

Our Memory Verse This Week is: “The Lord your God is He who fights for you as He Promised.” Joshua 23:10
