We all have giants that we face. For some of us, that may be a mental issue that we face, anxiety, addiction, depression, etc. For others, that could be a physical issue such as, cancer, eating disorders, heart problems, etc. It could even be situations that have hurt us, a hard break up, the death of a love one, a friend who betrayed us, or rejection from others.
No matter what it may be, some of us have something that makes life a little harder than it should be. Something that keeps us up at night. Something that is hard to overcome, and sometimes, we wonder “Maybe we should just give up”.
Well today, I want you to find that giant, whatever it may be. Find it inside of you.
Do you have it?
Now, be thinking about it while you read this next part.
Jesus has won the victory. He has defeated your giant when he died on the cross.
“God will strengthen you with his own great power so that you will not give up when troubles come, but you will be patient. And you will joyfully give thanks to the Father who has made you able to have a share in all that he has prepared for his people in the kingdom of light. God has freed us from the power of darkness, and he brought us into the kingdom of his dear Son. The Son paid for our sins, and in him we have forgiveness. No one can see God, but Jesus Christ is exactly like him. He ranks higher than everything that has been made. Through his power all things were made — things in heaven and on earth, things seen and unseen, all powers, authorities, lords, and rulers. All things were made through Christ and for Christ. He was there before anything was made, and all things continue because of him. He is the head of the body, which is the church. Everything comes from him. He is the first one who was raised from the dead. So in all things Jesus has first place. God was pleased for all of himself to live in Christ. And through Christ, God has brought all things back to himself again — things on earth and things in heaven. God made peace through the blood of Christ’s death on the cross.” -Colossians 1:11-20
It says it all right there. He has won the victory FOR YOU. He has defeated sin FOR YOU. He has given YOU a new life in Him. ISN’T THAT AMAZING??
However, even through the death of Jesus Christ, that does not mean we will not face trials. You giant can still hurt you. It can haunt you, hurt you, whisper lies to you, and even more. BUT Jesus has won the victory for you, so that you can have life with Him and overcome your giant.
I can do all this through him who gives me strength. – Philippians 4:13
Believe that verse and hold on to it. You cannot conquer your giant alone, but with God, anything is possible. He will strengthen you and help you. It may be difficult. It may take a lot of strength in you, and it also may take time. BUT it’s not impossible. Remember that.
