IT'S TIME TO SLAY THE GIANTS! Posted 062817 @ 9.22pm.
It is written in Proverbs 23.7: For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee. It is written in Romans 8.5-6: For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. We must keep our mind on spiritual things. Recently someone told me that I was “so heavenly minded that I was no earthly good.” My counter was: If you are not heavenly minded, you cannot be any earthly good. It is written in Philippians 4.8: Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things. It is written in 2 Corinthians 10.5: Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
We must allow the Spirit of God to renew our minds daily by the Word of God. It is written in Hebrews 4.12: For the word of God [is] quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. You must dig down deep in the Word of God to build your foundation on the sold Rock. Your life can have peace that passes all understanding regardless of what is happening in the world. The Word of God is a lamp unto your feet and a light unto your path. If you build your life on the Rock, the Word of God, you will have all that you need. God is our Provider. It is written in Romans 12-1-2: I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service.
It is written in Galatians 5.1: Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. The Word of God is your sword and your shield. It is your defense. When Jesus was tempted in the wilderness by Satan, He answered every attack with: IT IS WRITTEN! If you are rooted and grounded in the Word of God, no weapon formed against you shall prosper. It is written in Psalms 19.14: Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer. It is written in 2 Timothy 3.16: All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. It is written in Isaiah 26.3: Thou wilt keep [him] in perfect peace, [whose] mind [is] stayed [on thee]: because he trusteth in thee.
If you are born again, and have surrendered your life to the ONLY TRUE AND LIVING GOD, JESUS CHRIST, then you must be transformed by the renewing of your mind. It is written in Romans 12.2: And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. The only way to renew your mind is to mediate in the Word of God day and night. It is written in Psalms 1.1-6: Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
It is time to meditate on the Word of God. If you want to see change, it begins with you. It’s time to have a heart checkup. It’s time to re-evaluate your thinking and your heart. If you are struggling, that is a good thing. Struggle is where strength comes from. You’ve got to learn to give until it hurts, and then keep on giving. Jesus told His Disciples to forgive seventy times seven. The problem is, most people choose not to forgive. There must be unity within the Body of Christ. We are called to be Ministers of Reconciliation. Let it begin wtih you, today. We have come into our Due Season, and the enemy is on the defense. He knows his time is short and he is about to have a nervous breakdown, because he sees the giant slayers gathering together in prayer and unity. The fiery trials you have endured are past, and the springtime has come. Things are going to move more easily now. God is giving you a calm before the storm. This is the time to stand on His Word, nothing doubting.
Jesus Christ is our Rock of salvation. I recently prayed for a brother who was under attack, because he is sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He was especially under attack by so called “Believers” because he was sharing the Truth of the Word of God, and they only wanted their ears tickled. I’ve always said that the Word of God is not a buffet where you get to pick and choose what you like and don’t like. I reminded my Brother that we are called to be Giant Slayers. I reminded him that the world hated Jesus, and they will hate you. We are in this world, but not of it. Expect to be attacked, rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven. For so persecuted they the prophets who went before you. There are precious souls, unknown to man but known by God, whom the world is not worthy, who are slaying giants from their prayer closets every single day. Glory to God!
Is your giant a sickness or disease? Slay that giant with IT IS WRITTEN: By His stripes, you were healed. Is your giant a financial difficulty? Slay that giant with IT IS WRITTEN: My God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. It is the Lord who gives you the power to get wealth. Is your giant loss or lack? Slay that giant with IT IS WRITTEN: The young lions do lack and suffer hunger; but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing. Is your giant a stronghold in a loved one? Slay that giant with IT IS WRITTEN: Whom the Son sets free, is free indeed. The Word will work if you use it! There is power in His Name, His Blood and His Word! These are our great weapons of warfare, along with our faith.
The Lord is calling His Chosen Ones to gather their Rocks, and go slay the giants. Jesus Christ is our solid Rock, and He is the Word of God. It is written in Romans 9.33: As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumbling stone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. It is written in 1 Peter 2.8: And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. The Lord is calling His Chosen Ones to go and slay the giants. He is raising up mighty men and women of valor, who are not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and He is sending us out to slay the giants. I don’t know about you, but I haven’t come this far not to throw my Rock! Our nation and the nations of the earth are over-run with giants that need slaying. We must suit up, grab our Rock (the Word of God) and run to the battlefield. We must run at the giant and throw our Rock, without fear, knowing that greater is He who is in you than he that is in the world. Remember, there are more with us than there are against us. This is a Call to Arms! Will you join me?
