Enough Is Enough

Enough Is Enough by Keith Cook

"Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world."
1 Peter 5:8-9 NASB

Most of us know the story of David and Goliath. It is a very "large" example of how to live by faith and trust in God's faithfulness.

For forty days the Philistine champion, Goliath, has come before the army of Saul and challenged them to a one on one - winner take all - fight. Since Goliath was a huge giant, and fierce fighter, Saul's mighty men were hesitant and fearful of facing him alone.

Forty days is a long time to listen and endure the taunts of the devil. Many of us have lived a long time with a giant looming before us. Always clouding our path, always impeding our joy.

We have made valiant efforts to rid ourselves of this sin, shortcoming, or situation - but this giant always seems to rise again. All the while Jesus has won the victory for us. Already assured of a safe & secure path to success, why do we wait, why do we not run to His side for His plan?

Beating oneself up over failure & shortcomings is not God's way to victory. Running to the battle, slaying the giant, proclaiming the Word of the Lord are all byproducts of having total confidence in God's revealed will and plan.

We only know what to do, what to try, what to avoid, how to respond, by surrendering our will and responses to Him.

Listening, learning, loving, and living IN Christ will slay the giants in our lives. Riding in the palm of His hand will give us a front row seat to His victory over our giants.

Daily Prayer: Lord, Today, we lay our giants at your feet. Give us Boldness, Strength, and Faith as together we run to battle, slay the giant, and proclaim the Word of the Lord.
