When Giants Have to Fall…..

giants Good Morning! 

Facing any giants today? Monsterous Fears Maybe? 

You know, this may suprise you but …people don’t just wake up one day and realize “Hey I’m a giant slayer!”

Even those of us who DO stand up to those supposed “powers of darkness” had our days of fear and trembling, shaking and quaking, and wondering what to do next. Maybe King David was blessed in that, he did not have to listen to the news on TV every day, and hear about how many stood up to a giant and got killed in the process. See: We have it easier than David in someways (we live in New Testament times) but in other ways, we have it harder. Life was simpler in the days of King David, but the choice has always been the same. Trust God, or not Trust God. 

I do not mean idly sitting by, watching to see what God will do next…….

I’ve been writing messages for months now, as I face my own giants. I have faced many, in my time. 

This time, it was cancer. Oh yes, the big C. The name of the giant is different, the victory over it is the same. One day we will all face that last giant (death) And when God decides it’s our time, we’ll see that one defeated too, as we enter heaven forever, rejoicing. 

after King David slayed the giant, he faced a bigger one. Saul’s Jealousy and Rage.

Before he became King, He was chased around by Saul, who was so upset at David’s Victories, his own realization his time was short (as King) that he wanted to literally murder David. David’s men begged him to kill Saul, but he would not do it.  

I could talk for hours about how I came to the conclusions I have (about Faith) but you wouldn’t likely read it all (unless I write another book) and I don’t have time. What I will say is this: “The Holy Spirit” Has a lot he wants to teach you……

Will you take the time? The other thing is: Becoming a Giant Slayer takes time. David was out in the fields tending the sheep, meditating on God’s truths and principles. He was prepared for his day in the sun (and the days in the dark as well.) I don’t care what the giant’s name is, the answers is the Same. GOD! 

If you looked out the window and saw a stray dog molesting your child, you would grab whatever you could, run out there, and beat the thing half to death. GET OFF MY CHILD! 

When we face ANYTHING that threatens to destroy us the answer is the same……..

SATAN, GET OFF MY CHILD!!! In Jesus’ name! What weapon you use hardly matters. David used the one he was most comfortable with (A sling and a stone). Maybe your weapon is prayer, declarations …..speaking VICTORY SINGING …….What matters is to have a heart like David and realize “WHO ARE YOU DEVIL” TO torment the people of God? WHO ARE YOU (sickness, cancer, premature death, lack, poverty, etc) WHO ARE YOU OH MOUNTAIN? (to stand in the way of God?). 

As giant slayers…..we may have different styles. The important thing is: do we understand this concept? GOOD GOD (Very Good Father) vs BAD DEVIL (who hates us)

WHO wants to kill, steal and destroy? Not God! 

Jesus said: “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly”
John 10:10 
 
Father make them giant slayers today (all of your People Lord God) Let it get in them once and for all YOU have given us all we need in you to defeat every giant! in Jesus’ name! Amen   Laura Grace Author, Grace to the Rescue series

The Power of Testimony …and the role of the accuser …….

A TESTIMONYHi Everyone!

Just want to share a little about the power of Testimony today. A testimony is when you have been a personal witness, of God doing something miraculous in yours, or someone else’s life. It could be you saw someone raised from the dead, or you were healed, or you had God provide for you in a miraculous way.

If you don’t get out much, you may not realize, some churches do not allow testimonies, and some welcome them fully! Jesus clearly said to his Disciples, they would be his “witnesses” and indeed, they were witnesses not only to the miracles he performed, but later on, miracles performed via themselves!

Now, when someone says they were healed supernaturally (and testify about it) or any other miracles God has performed in their lives, it’s inevitable the accuser (the devil) will stir someone to say “I did that, I wasn’t healed!” and claim the person testifying must be a liar, or they are Misrepresenting God somehow.

God says to me (I wrote this in my journal) We are accountable to preach and say what we know to be true, which he has etched into our very hearts by His Spirit.

It’s not my place to defend God, as he is well able to defend himself, if he deems it is needed.

You can choose, whether to be build up in your Faith but the power of Testimonies, or not. The bible is full of records of miraculous healings, deliverance, supernatural provision, hearts turning to God and becoming full of Joy, and people burning their sorcery junk in the middle of the street.

Jesus was so real to Peter, James, John, Matthew, Thomas, and others….they were willing to die for their faith and belief in Jesus Christ as a person, who was very personal, and very real, to them.

We need him to be that real to us! How we achieve that, is between us and God! What your testimony turns out to be, is also between you, and God. One thing I know I don’t want to be, is an accuser *of the brethren, such as those who make it their life’s aim to say “well that can’t be true.” God (as I have seen) is very big on jumping straight out of the boxes, we try to contain him in.

Yes, your testimony may just bring out the worst in people (sometimes). Testify anyway!

Someone out there, needs to hear it! with love and hope, Faith and believing…..

Til next time! Laura Grace
