Are You Facing Giants?
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23
Did you ever play “king of the mountain” as a child? When you were on high ground, you could shove the others down, even though they were entrenched and determined to overtake you.
Where did this man, now in his eighties, get his courage? Where did he get his confidence? He got it from the word of God. Listen to me, faith comes by hearing the word of God (Romans 10:17). It doesn’t come out of the head; it comes out of the heart. The reason Caleb could appropriate the promises of God and those promises became a living, vibrant reality to him is that he had a character committed to the Lord.
All of us face giants every day – giants of doubt, fear, discouragement, financial ruin, sickness, broken relationships. Do you think the giants in the Promised Land took God by surprise? God knew they were there all the time – they were part of His purpose to strengthen His children’s faith.
It’s time you got a bulldog grip on the Word of God and believe what He says to be true.
