From the Pastor's Desk
Shift into warrior mode! The giants must fall! Shake off disappointment, and take the land! Some of you have really been going through it. You have dealt with disappointment after disappointment. Encourage yourself in the Lord.
As one of my favorite movies says, "Face the giants!" When we are moving forward, there's going to be warfare. When you take the land, you face some giants.
Giants are not pleasant. We don't like to face them. But you are conquering territory. You are going to a new place. You are not doing warfare for warfare's sake. You are not standing still. You are making progress, so don't get depressed. What is happening to you is not something that is a natural thing. You are fighting a supernatural battle.
One of the most important things you can do is maintain your joy. Whatever the Devil has done, God is going to turn it for good. So start thinking the Lord in your situation.
You have a territory that God has already given you. Get up! Shake off the disappointments. Shake off the things the enemy is trying to do. Don't stay back in the former times of your life. You are a conqueror. You are going to defeat every giant that is coming against your dream. You will take the territory, buy the building, go to school, pay your bills, pay your debts, pay off your house, send your children to school.
Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might (Eph. 6:10). Giants must fall.
