Defeating Your Goliath

In Biblical days when God’s people contended with giants, they either ran toward the enemy, like David, or cowered and ran away like those who spied out the land of Canaan. Today, we encounter similar challenges—though the giants themselves may be different. But we are not defeated. God has given us the mighty spiritual weapons of His name, His Word, His blood, His Spirit and His faith with which to fight and win.


1 Sam. 17:1

Acts 3:6-10,16; 4 (His name)

Matt. 4:1-11 (His Word)

Col. 1:13-14

Rev. 12:10-11 (His blood)

Zech. 4:6 (His Spirit)

Eph. 6:16

1 John 5:4-5 (His faith)


We can sometimes feel defenseless and insecure when facing troubles. What steps can you take to begin employing the spiritual weapons you’ve been given?


Father, make us more aware of Your strength and less aware of our weaknesses. Teach us to lay hold of Your power and Your truth and to exercise the authority that You’ve given us over the enemy. Amen.
