More Giants to Slay
1 Chronicles 20:8 These were born unto the giant in Gath; and they fell by the hand of David, and by the hand of his servants. You would think that after David slew Goliath, his fight with giants would be over. Not so. There were more giants to come. More extra large adversaries to oppose. The same happens with us as we journey through this life. It's not just one battle, but many, and they vary in size with some seemingly unconquerable. What we must remember is that when Goliath fell, it was an precedent for things to come. God doesn't kill the first giant and then leave us to ourselves. Goliath's defeat was an assurance to David that every foe that would stand against his kingdom would also fall. Our salvation is defeat to the giant of guilt and condemnation. There are, however, other giants in our path as we grow in God's grace, but be certain that they too will be decapitated by the sword of God's Word!
