“Who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the
armies of the living God?”~ 1 Samuel 17:26
What giants are you facing in your life today? Is it a giant of sickness or failure, financial shortage or some other kind of trouble? Let’s learn how to defeat these giants and not be scared or intimidated by them.
As a Christian you have a secret weapon! You have access to a strong arsenal that no enemy can conquer. This is the same weapon that once turned a shepherd boy into a bear and a lion-killing champion!
What is this weapon that is available to God’s people? That weapon was and is the blood covenant with Almighty God! Back in David’s day, circumcision was the sign of that covenant. When David called Goliath uncircumcised, he was essentially saying: “This man may be a giant and he may be strong and powerful; but he has no covenant with God and that’s why I can kill him.”
David knew the covenant he had with God and it empowered him to defeat Goliath. There were numerous blessings included in David’s covenant. If you kept these covenant laws, there were numerous blessings for obedience and curses for disobedience. Just like David, you too, have a covenant. Your covenant with God is a new one and is much better. Jesus bought and established this new covenant with His own blood. This covenant does not depend on your ability. It depends on Jesus and what He has already done. He has done it ALL! All you have to do is believe and receive it.
In Deuteronomy 28:16-68 there is a list of curses you are now free from. You are liberated from these curses because of Christ’s victory! These curses no longer apply to you. Included in this list are the giants Jesus has already slain for you. These giants include fear, addictions, the sting of death, sickness and disease, etc. When you read the list of curses, you will be praising the Lord!! God has healed you and delivered you from those things that otherwise would destroy you.
Galatians 3:13 (Amplified) says, “Christ purchased our freedom (redeeming us) from the curse (doom) of the Law (and its condemnation) by (Himself) becoming a curse for us, for it is written (in the Scriptures), Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree (is crucified).”
Do not allow any of life’s giants to overwhelm you. Those challenging giants have to go because you have a blood covenant with Almighty God! You are victorious through Jesus!
Praise the Lord!
