Brian Houston on Killing the Giants in Your Life
When David faced off Goliath the odds didn’t look too promising. David was a young shepherd boy who like to sing but facing and conquering his giant was the catalyst to the course of his life changing to become Israel’s most beloved and famous king.
What giants do you have to face? Do you realise that these giants could be the catalyst to your life changing? David knew the source of his change didn’t lie within his own ability but with God when he boldly declared,
“You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the LORD will deliver you into my hand.“ (1 Sam 17:45-46 NKJV)
David was not content to allow this giant to win; he was motivated to take him down and he embraced the opportunity. Like David, if you put your trust and hope in the Lord as the source of your change and allow the redeeming blood of Jesus to cover you, the Holy Spirit will empower you to change and take down the giants that threaten to hold you ransom from your God-given destiny.
In the same way, the Apostle Paul always pointed people to Jesus as their source. In Colossians 1:27 he declares “Christ in you, the hope of glory.” The more like Jesus you become, the more your life will change for the better. The source of your change is in knowing Christ – go to His Word and there you will find the keys to taking out those giants.
