Modern-Day Giants

When the Israelites went into the Promised Land they saw the abundance of the produce, milk and honey, pomegranites, figs and grapes so large that it took two men to carry the branch. They also encountered the giants who populated the land, fortified cities and six residents nations who would be sure to oppose them. Ten of the men concentrated on the appearance of the giants and forgot the abundance of the fruit and God’s promise.

Today our giants are of a different type. Our giants are misinformation, the over-spill of the results of war with the resultant refugees, dictators gaining influence and a lack of acknowledging God . The list is endless.

But we are in the same position as the Israelites, we still have the promises of God. He has promised that the wicked will eventually be judged, His justice will reign. A time is coming when sin and disease will be no more, even death will be conquered. While we wait for heaven, God has sent us blessings and joy for the here and now. We have the longer days and evidence of spring approaching. We have the love and support of friends and family. The church, the Bible and Christian fellowship are God’s blessings for us while we wait.
