Not Always a Giant

“So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free” (John 8:36 NLT).

We all have giants in life that we face, severe hardships, and seemingly insurmountable obstacles and temptations.

The apostle Paul reminded the believers in Corinth, “The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure” (1 Corinthians 10:13 NLT).

Whatever you’re going through isn’t unique, necessarily, to you. Someone else is facing—or has faced—something similar. It’s just a matter of what, where, or who your giant is.

The giant Goliath whom David faced wasn’t always a giant. When he was born, he probably was a very large baby and even a very demanding baby. But then he grew into a giant of a man. This serves as a reminder that giants don’t usually start out as giants. They typically start small.

We don’t treat them seriously and don’t see them as the threat they are, but they grow bigger and bigger with the passing of time. So often that’s how sin works. It starts in a way that doesn’t seem so threatening.

Remember, it was a woman named Delilah who brought down the mighty Samson. The name Delilah, by the way, means “delicate.” Samson underestimated her, and we know the rest of the story.

We need to understand that sin doesn’t usually start big; it starts small. But we also need to realize there is no giant that should be overpowering and taunting us, because the Bible reminds us, “He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4 NKJV).

God is in control, and He is more powerful than our adversary.
