We Are Giants!
Bro. Jimmy Toney preached one of the nights at Youth Congress and he made it very clear about who we are and what our purpose is! We are destined to become giants!
The definition of a giant is: a person of extraordinary size. Yes, Giants can also be mean and nasty but we’re talking about spiritual giants here!
For example, the story of David and Goliath. Goliath saw who he was up against and laughed in David’s face. For David was just a puny kid with a slingshot and a rock. However, Goliath never realized that his worst nightmare was probably what? 5 feet tall? David became a spiritual giant and defeated Goliath with God on his side. Physical size doesn’t matter when you have the help from an Almighty God who exceeds the size of the universe. Does not the bible say the Earth is His footstool? That must be pretty big!
However, if we are not careful, we will start looking at ourselves as grasshoppers to this world and our enemies. Just because this world is a giant that we face, we have to stand out and show that we are giants ourselves! If God is for us, then who can stand against us? 1 John 4:1 says, “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” There will be days when Goliath’s will face us and try to knock us down and laugh in our face. Satan and his angels are running rapant in this world today! BUT! We ARE the children of God! We have dominion over the enemy! As Bro. Toney stated, “We need to get the spirit of anti-christ into a spirit of Christ!”We have to live our life surrendered to the will of God! With Him on our side, nothing is impossible! If we let the enemy push us down and make us believe that we are inferior to them, we will never overcome our problems! Sure, the Devil will tempt us and mock us and try to trick us, but when Satan starts aiming for your life, that just proves that you are a mighty saint of God! He doesn’t want someone who is shallow and of the world. He’s going for the saints of God that have made up their mind to serve God whole-heartedly!
So step on up on the plate of righteousness and let Satan pitch to you all he wants! Show him who the real Giants are and hit it out of the park! God is the most high and we are his children!
