Giants were actual biblical figures (Gen. 6:4, Num. 13:33), which intimidated and triggered fear in man. If used as an analogy, giants are obstacles and fears that hinder God’s direction in our life.

“Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’” John 8:12

Jesus commands us to shine our light before mankind in hopes of glorifying the Father and leading the lost to His saving grace. The light within us is the Holy Spirit and He enables us to live righteously within a crooked and perverse world. Read More

God is our ONLY source and He is the ONLY ONE who will bind our wounds and heal our hearts.

PRAYER:

My Dear Father,

I come to you today and ask you to help me.
You, like no one else, know what burden I carry and how painful that is.
I believe that you are my only doctor and Savior and you are able to restore me and give me new breath and new strength to go on in my life.
