Are you in a personal battle, facing down a GIANT?
The struggle is REAL! Just like David, we all have an enemy out there who wants to destroy us. What does YOUR giant look like?
- Loneliness after the death of a spouse?
- A devastating diagnosis?
- A failed business or bankruptcy?
- An addiction that you can’t seem to break?
The Bible says, that our enemy goes about AS a roaring lion. He’s not a roaring lion, he’s just acting like one. And he’s seeking who he may devour.
How can we keep from being devoured?
Here’s the way lions operate. They don’t, usually, pick on those in the pack that are closely surrounded. Instead, they stalk the herd, looking for one to single out; one that wanders off on its own. Because, without the strength and protection of the herd, that one will be weak, vulnerable…and EASY PICKINGS.
Don’t let the enemy catch you singled out and ALONE.
Don’t let ANYTHING keep you from going to church! Believe me, if you’re in the struggle of your life, you, absolutely, HAVE TO find a good church to back you up.
We try to depend on ourselves, but, eventually, we fail. We were never created to survive this life on our own. Surround yourself with a strong community of believers. Be strong in the Lord and lean on Him.
When we are WEAK…then God is STRONG!
It’s all a matter of perspective. What seems HUGE to us, seems small to God. I promise you, that whatever the size of your problem…GOD IS BIGGER!
WHO or WHAT are the giants you’re facing, today? You don’t have to be afraid. You can share here.
