Sitting on my desk, there is a bronze plaque of David, as a teenage shepherd, hurling his stone at the huge Goliath standing before him. The words on the plaque are: ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible!’
The difference in their physical size and their apparent readiness for war is dramatically displayed. Goliath is gigantic, covered with steel, and every inch a man skilled in battle. David is small, with only a slingshot and no armour at all! One looks very well prepared for the event and the other, totally unprepared.
And yet, in truth, the one that is actually prepared for that moment is the young shepherd. David has had a revelation of the greatness of his God and deep inside of him he carries the conviction: ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible!’
Generations before those words of Jesus would be recorded, this young man—David—knew that there was no force upon the Earth that was equal to the supernatural empowerment of the Holy Spirit.
The size of your giant is irrelevant! The weapons that he possesses are irrelevant! There is simply no contest when one stands for God, empowered by Him! We are not called to walk in the power of our own ability; we are called to be a supernatural people.
Three things I know about Father’s intention for your future:
1) If it is to possess new territory and be fruitful, it will be opposed by giants
2) No matter how gifted and skilled you are, your humanity will not be enough, and
3) Empowered by the supernatural force of the Holy Spirit, you will overcome every giant and celebrate the fall of each one, as you possess your destiny!
May your hunger to know Him better ever increase your understanding of HIS greatness.
Love and God bless,
