There are several instances mentioned in the Bible where people had encountered giants.
In the Book of Numbers, the LORD told Moses to send twelve men, one from each of the twelve tribes of Israel, to spy out the land of Canaan (The Promised Land).
They returned to Moses with a cluster of grapes that was so huge that it took two men to carry.
But they had returned with a bad report saying, “although the land surely does flow with milk and honey the giants are too large for us to conquer”
They also said, “We were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.” This was due to their own intimidation.
When Caleb heard this report he said, “Let us go up and possess the land!” Joshua and Caleb went in and returned saying that the land “flows with milk and honey, the LORD is with us, and do not fear the giants because they will be bread for us….”
The Book of 1 Samuel, chapter 17 mentions another giant named Goliath whom David slayed with a sling and a stone when he was a young shepherd boy.
The reason why David knew that he would have the victory over Goliath was because he had already killed a lion and a bear before he defeated this giant.
God used a slingshot in the hands of David to take down something that would be impossible to do in the natural. His strength was not in and of himself, but it was a supernatural act of God.
David had a personal relationship with the LORD and later became a psalmist, a prophet and a king.
The time that he spent alone with the LORD gave him great courage and determination to behead something that he knew in the natural was extremely stronger than himself.
Throughout his younger days, David was being groomed and prepared to become a great leader during times of rejection and difficult tests.
Some of you are also being trained in your darkest hour. Recognize the challenge. David had been through many battles in his life but he always came out victorious.
He was a warrior but also a man after Gods own heart. David’s brothers also became giant killers as they were later influenced and trained by him (2 Samuel 21:21-22).
David had an elite army who were mighty and fierce warriors. They are named and described in 2 Samuel 23: 8- 39.
Jesus is also raising up an elite army of warriors for the days ahead. It is imperative to get connected with other giant slayers so that you will be victorious and defeat giants in the days ahead.
The LORD says; “I have created you to be a giant slayer. Never allow the enemy to magnify the negative situations in your life, and don’t look at the giants as unconquerable.
Do not see yourself as inadequate, but know that you are well able to overcome any obstacle that stands before you, and fulfill any assignment that I have called you to do.
Go forth as Joshua and Caleb knowing that you are well able to possess the land.
Do not fear, but go forth in what I have commissioned you to do.
Don’t be led by your natural senses or your physical limitations. Your present circumstances may be overwhelming but observe every situation in the light of My Word.
The weapons of your warfare are not natural weapons and I have provided mighty spiritual weapons for you to tear down strongholds and annihilate any giant that rises against you.
Don’t be intimidated by the vastness of your challenges and don’t allow your natural circumstances to steer you in a neutral gear.
Gird up the loins of your mind when threatened with adversity. You have been equipped to defeat any giant that rises up against you,” says the LORD.
“Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had spied out the land, tore their clothes [as a sign of grief], and they spoke to all the congregation of the sons of Israel, saying, “The land through which we passed as spies is an exceedingly good land. If the LORD delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us, a land which flows with milk and honey. Only do not rebel against the LORD; and do not fear the people of the land, for they will be our prey. Their protection has been removed from them, and the LORD is with us. Do not fear them.” Numbers 14:6-9 AMP.
“So it was, when the Philistine arose and came and drew near to meet David, that David hurried and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine. Then David put his hand in his bag and took out a stone; and he slung it and struck the Philistine in his forehead, so that the stone sank into his forehead, and he fell on his face to the earth,” 1 Samuel 17:48-49.
