We live in the Land of Giants.
Not Goliath, (1 Samual 17), who David slew with a sling. Or Og, whose bed was over 13.5 feet long and 6 feet wide. (Deuteronomy 3)
Or even Andre the Giant, 7 foot 4 inches tall.
The Giants we fight today, are more dangerous and deadly.
When Joshua led the Hebrews into the Promised land, they were commanded to slay the Giants and inhabit the land.
When we are saved, we need to slay the Giants in our lives and inherit the promised land.
What are our Giants?
Loneliness, alcoholism, fear, depression, lust, pride, nicotine, rejection, drugs.
On a National scale, the belief that there are more than 2 genders.
The promotion, legalization, and normalization of Gay Marriage. We have LGBTQ people portrayed on every TV show, (They must be a Huge Minority to get that much coverage), They aren’t, and of course man-caused Climate Change.
Then there is the specter of Socialism.
I do not hate any of the folks, that believe these things or fight these addictions or delusions. It just grieves my spirit.
The problem stems from both what our public schools and colleges teach, and the lack of sound Biblical Teaching, in our Churches.
It seems that most Christians are happy to be taught the Gospel, and not search the Word themselves. Like in the time of Moses, tell us what God wants, and we’ll do it.
It was a problem then and still is today.
Walking with God is a very personal experience. There are many Scriptures, that point out it is our responsibility to study and live the Word. (2 Timothy 2:15; Romans 12)
The Word, like manna, needs to be gathered daily, to receive our nutritional needs, to grow in our faith.
We need to long for a closer relationship with Him, to seek Him, to know Him and serve Him.

We all have the relationship we want with God. My desire is a more intimate one.
