Giant-Killers (2)

September 17, 2018

“If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones.”    Lk 16:10 NLT

 

Observe: (1) Giant-killers don’t start out as giant-killers!David was a meek musician, humble shepherd, and overlooked son. Faithfulness was his advantage—faithfulness in his talent, faithfulness with his father’s sheep, faithfulness to God. By becoming master over the small things, he became master over the large things. Faithfulness is a common characteristic of uncommon spiritual achievers. Matthew started as a tax collector; Peter as a fisherman; Elisha as a farmer; Jesus as a carpenter. Have you ever considered that Jesus spent more years as a carpenter than He did as a preacher? He was faithful in little things. God never called an inactive or nonproductive person. Every candidate had started something before they became a giant-killer. Giant-killers don’t start out as giant-killers…but giant-killers start! (2) Giant-killers know that the reward is always greater than the risk!Life rewards risk and action, but Satan will whisper words of fear and anxiety in your ears to minimize the reward and magnify the risk. Yet the truth remains, that “God is a Rewarder” of diligent seekers (See Heb 11:6). You must believe the promise is greater than the problem, the objective is greater than the objections, and God is greater than your giant. The belief that “God is greater” is the essence of a faith that persists in the face of fear. Fear is Satan’s weapon to paralyze you; faith is God’s weapon to mobilize you. So depend on God, challenge the giant, and join the ranks of God’s giant-killers.

Believing for the impossible can challenging initially and even exploits can be over whelming. The God who has called you is bigger, much bigger, so pick up your pebble and fling it!
