What you do not overcome will overcome you.
We find three things in the scripture
What you do not overcome - has already overcome you -
Overcome by fear of the Giants - Leads to unbelief and doubt - It wasn't that the Giants were so big but their God had limitations. -
We sometimes limit God by our reasoning and logic.
We sometimes limit God by looking at our giant instead of our GodI love the song the Collingsworth family sings, Don't tell God how big your storm is - tell the storm how big God is.
God does not intend to have defeated children - when he has purchased complete victory
2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV)
7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
It's not about the odd's It's about God - I love that clause in the Bible - "But God" -
David was no match for Goliath - But God
Israel was no match for Jericho - but God
Like the songwriter said - "While Satan tried his worst the Lord was by my side I knew - He answered prayer and took me thru - He will not fail me now.
We're no match for Satan - but God
The giants we face may be real and scary - but God
It may be stressful and overwhelming at work - But God
You may not know how you will get thru the next hurdle - But God
There is no way you can help those who are hurting - but God
Psalm 124:1 (KJV) 1
If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, …
Don't waste time and energy by depending on your own strength, abilities, or equipment - Leave Saul's armor alone Don't question the battle plan
The Battle's not mine - The Battle is the Lord's
It was David's duty to fight - It was God's duty to win
It was David's duty to trust - It was God's duty to Show Himself Powerful
It was David's duty to see the cause and act - It was God's duty to bring the victory
It was Joshua's duty to see the impenetrable walls of Jericho - It was God's duty to knock them down
It was Joshua's duty to trust God and slay the Giants - It was God's duty to give grace and power to overcome
