Read a Samuel 17:23-51
Everyone will have a giant to face in their life, the question is, how will you respond to it?
God allows giants to come in our life to show us that it is not about us, but He is developing faith within us.
The story of David and Goliath will give us real life practical applications on how to not only face our giants, but be victorious over them.
1. List a giant that you are currently facing, and/or list a dream, vision, or goal that you have that is bigger than you.
2. Gather Information
Write down the information about the giant and/or research what it takes to achieve your dream, vision, or goal (1 Sam. 17:23-28).
3. Have an action plan
After you have done your research, what action are you going to take (1 Sam. 17:32)?
4. Recall private victories
Write down the “private victories” that God has done for you in the past (1 Sam. 34-37).
5. Recognize the hand of God over your life
Recognize the hand of God on your life. Write down the times that God has saved your life or rescued you from something (1 Sam. 17:37).
6. Use what works for you
What gifts, talents, abilities, or resources has God given you? How have they worked for you in the past and present (1 Sam. 17:38-40)?
7. Speak in faith
What scriptures are you believing God for as it relates to your giant? Write them out and speak to your giant with the Word of God (1 Sam. 17:45-47).
8. Move forward until you have the victory
Move forward until you have the victory! After you have conquered your giant, write it down for a future reference.
