One of the most powerful speeches in the Bible was delivered by a young shepherd boy.  It was undoubtedly inspired by God.  It's just 124 words long, but filled with meaning.  If you are facing a big challenge, a struggle, a giant in your life, you need to make this speech your declaration and your prayer!

What is the one thing in your life that is holding you back from your potential? What is the one area you've struggled with, but can't seem to overcome?  What is your giant?  We all face difficult battles and tests, but we have a big God on our side.  You + God = an overwhelming majority!

Everyone deals with critics.  Believe it or not, if you choose to take on your giant, not everyone will be pleased. They might question your motives.  Why aren't other people always supportive of your efforts to defeat your giant?

In this series, we have been facing the giants in our lives:  the one thing that holds us back from what God wants us to be.   You may not feel qualified to tackle your giant.  You've been wanting to learn the latest technique, or talk to an expert.  God doesn't need an expert.  He uses unlikely heroes.  It has nothing to do with you and everything to do with the God you serve.

What is the big thing in your life that is holding you back?  What is it that keeps you from being everything God wants you to be?  Is it a hurt, illness or financial setback?  If you could pick one area of your life to overcome a weakness, habit, or tendency, what would it be?  What is your giant?  Get ready to fight!
