And the Philistine said, I defy the armies of Israel this day; give me a man, that we may fight together. When Saul and all Israel heard those words of the Philistine, they were dismayed, and greatly afraid. 1 Samuel 17:10-11
There are battles that are lost without fighting them, just because our mind was confused, to the point that it makes us see ourselves defeated without having fought. Goliath, in his words, had threatened the people to instill into them a fear so great that it disabled them and they could not face it, surrendering to the will of the giant. This is the weapon that the enemy uses to disable us.
We cannot flinch because of hurtful words, those that curse, that have been released by our enemies. On the contrary, we have to face them because, if we do not, our purpose is lost. There is no paying attention to what the giants say.
Let us close our ears to those voices full of evil, and let us open our eyes to see the power that descends from Heaven to help us face the Goliaths and defeat them.
