My brother came to me this morning with a blog post he had just written, with the proposition of posting it on my blog. :) So here is a post from Master Caleb.
What do you think of when you think about giants? Most commonly we all think of great Goliath, the tallest of the tall. We all know the story, how a young Israelite boy goes to face a 10 foot super man who no one has ever tried to tackle.
The giant is now probably laughing his head off as he sees his short opponent taking a few small stones from the dried up creek bed. But David is being guided by someone higher-- even than Goliath.
Now the giant is swinging his sword, making it flash against the morning sun. He sees short little David putting into his leather sling one of the stones he has just collected. Goliath, thinking he is well equipped for victory, decides that his helmet is not needed and tosses it aside. As he turns to meet his little "enemy" he feels it-- the stone that came flying from David's sling seconds earlier. He screams out, "Aahhhh" while falling helpless to the battle hardened ground. And there stands David looking at the giant, who God, through him, has conquered.
Has that ever happened to you? Do you have giants to face? You may say "No! Where would I find any?" But do you think there is a giant that is greater than ten thousand Goliaths? Have you ever thought that we face a giant every day? We all do. You may not see it, or even hear its roaring but it's as real as the air you breath. It is self. The thing that appears when Mom tells you that you're on dishes, or when Father says that we are going to get fire wood today. We all know this giant don't we? May we pray that God will make us victors.
