TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
The devil is not My enemy. He is yours. Because he hates Me, he does all in his power to destroy you. Do not partner with his lies. Listen to My voice. I call you family. I call you friend. Take My hand and live.
GIANTS IN THE LAND
You’re a bad motor-scooter. You’re something else. You’re an overcomer and that’s not because of your flesh. In the Bible, the devil that represents your flesh is Goliath of Gath.
Goliath represents our flesh. In the Bible, giants represent the problems we have in our Promised Land. We’re all earthen vessels. We’re created out of the earth and our bodies are literally seventy percent water just like the earth is seventy percent water. That means the territory that God wants to conquer is you!
But there are giants in the land. There are fleshly tendencies that have to be dealt with that oppose the occupation of the Spirit of God within your own life. You know them because you made friends with them. Giants of anger, jealousy, covetousness, addiction, debt, depression, doubt, and despair.
All of us have giants and all of our giants have to be dealt with – every single one of them. The Bible says Goliath was six cubits and a span. That means he was at least 9-feet-six-inches tall. He’s a big ‘un! The brother’s got six fingers and the Bible says his spearhead weighed in at 600 shekels and he’s even got six pieces of demonic armor.
There are sixes all over him and we all know six is God’s number for flesh. That means the six pounds of gray flesh between our ears is the biggest giant we have in our promised land. This Goliath is not just the enemy, he’s even worse – the in-a-me.
He’s got insider information. He knows the lay of the land and all our weak spots. He’s got the advantage, or so he likes us to think. There is one weapon in our arsenal that can defeat him and that’s the rock. The smooth stone of Jesus, specifically what he says about us, defeats Goliath every time.
Goliath calls you a loser? Jesus says you’re victorious. Goliath calls you ugly? Jesus says you’re a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Want to stand against the in-a-me? Fall upon the rock and let Him break your giant into pieces.
Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces; anyone on whom it falls will be crushed. – Luke 20:18
