V. SERMONIC THEME: “Giants, Keep on coming”

INTRODUCTION:

The Good Book reminds us all in Job 37:5 that God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding.

In fact, it was Elder Job, himself, that asked the questions of his critics by saying in Job 40:9 (NIV) do you have an arm like God’s, and can your VOICE THUNDER like his?

David, our Psalmist, said (in Psalm 18:2a): The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer; In whom I will trust…);

I submit to you, this evening, that God promises victory everywhere we go; but no one will go through this life with only one giant to face.

God never said this life would be EASY! But, He did say that we would be winners. Winners never quit and quitters never win.

For don’t you remember, It was Isaiah that said in Isaiah 54:17 - No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shall condemn …;

In other words, my brothers and my sisters, we’re in a fix fight – Our heavenly referee has already declared us winners by Spiritual Knock-Out.

b. The fight is fixed!

c. We need to have the attitude that Regardless of how dismal, miserable, and disheartening the circumstance in our lives is - God promises victory everywhere we go!

d. Now, it’s TRUE, I don’t know why God allow certain things to occur in our lives.
