Good morning church,
Are any of you feeling discouraged this morning? Discouragement is like a little pesky snake that sneaks in and begins to latch on and squeeze; slowly tightening its grip around you until you begin to slowly suffocate. Sometimes you don’t even realize it until it is too late. Discouragement attacks everyone and it is a Giant that we all must kill because discouragement will render us useless and completely incompetent to accomplish any sort of kingdom work.
Discouragement never attacks alone… he has many allies that come in and begin to annihilate us. The problem with discouragement is that we get caught completely off guard and we cannot seem to recover from his brutal attacks. Fatigue, Frustration, Failure, and Fear are all a result of Discouragement. Depression of the mind, body, and spirit is the consequence of Discouragement’s attacks. This Giant is a no-count, dirty, backstabbing, low-down ministry killer! We must do everything we can to slay this giant before he completely destroys our spirit!
This morning I want you to know church that you can in fact be a Giant Killer! You can slay this giant just like David removed the head of Goliath! Today is your day Church! Today you can be free from discouragement and walk in the strength of the Lord! Today you can stand up tall, head held high, waving the sword of truth as you proclaim your victory over this Giant of Discouragement!
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling.
We would love you to join us this morning as we all become Giant Killers!
