Face The Giants

Be Strong and Stand Tall

Fear can paralyze us in many ways. Fear is not only an emotion, but a spirit that will prevent us from moving forward in life and your spritual growth.

We need to be reminded that not every obstacle that comes our way is the end of the world. God allows these obstacles and trials for a reason and a season in your life. There are other times its just outright evil that we face. Just like the Israelites. Israel faced giants in order to get into the promised land which was led by Joshua and Caleb. Remember, God made a promise to Moses to get Israel into the land of Canaan.

This was their report to Moses: “We entered the land you sent us to explore, and it is indeed a bountiful country—a land flowing with milk and honey. Here is the kind of fruit it produces. But the people living there are powerful, and their towns are large and fortified. We even saw giants there, the descendants of Anak! But Caleb tried to quiet the people as they stood before Moses. “Let’s go at once to take the land,” he said. “We can certainly conquer it!” or “we can overcome them”. But the other men the ten spies who had explored the land with him disagreed. “We can’t go up against them! They are stronger than we are!” So they spread this bad report about the land among the Israelites:

“The land we traveled through and explored will devour anyone who goes to live there. All the people we saw were huge. We even saw giants there, the descendants of Anak. Next to them we felt like grasshoppers, and that’s what they thought, too!”
Numbers 13:27‭-‬28‭, ‬30‭-‬33 NLT

The 10 spies lost hope and faith because they were intimidated. Caleb saw a different picture and knew that faith in God would give them the victory.

Well they got the victory doing it God’s way and not their way! They didn’t complain or make excuses as to why they could not overcome them. The walls of Jericho fell flat and they captured Canaan. See Joshua 6

God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, of love, and a sound mind (or discipline). 2 Tim. 1:7

Friend face your fears today and allow the Lord in your battle which takes humility and trust to and you will see victory. ‘It’s Time to March to Victory

“You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the Lord will be with you.’ ”
2 Chronicles 20:17 NIV

Remember the battle is the Lord’s! God’s wisdom and strength is much more safer than our own reasoning. Even though we cannot see a way out or how to overcome, God want us to look to Him for the victory.

‘Stand still’ means to stand still. Be patient and let the Lord take control of your family, your work situation, the ministry God is leading you into. Know that believing prayer will move mountains ⛰ 🙏.

It’s time to claim your spiritual inheritance of the promises and blessings of God

Greetings! My name is Andy Provitola and I live in New England on the south shore between Boston and the beautiful Cape Cod region. The purpose of my blogging and writing is to encourage you in your journey here on planet earth. Life is full of pressing issues and problems and my desire is to discover a place for peace, hope, healing, and contentment. I am a follower of Jesus Christ – God’s one and only Son of God and discovered these truths along my own personal journey. Having discovered a personal relationship with God the Father through Jesus Christ does not mean I have to be religious to attain the rewards of heaven. The fact is God provides grace for us and accepts us as we are in His image. In other words, we cannot attain heaven or life eternal on our own, but by God’s loving grace and no merit of our own. My goal is to continue to find a balance of life from a spiritual and practical perspective with a purpose to please and glorify God in all that I do because of His ‘Gift of Grace’. God is not transcendent and so far away that he is out of reach with humanity. God desires that His presence lives within us and not just in the galaxies and the universe. Experiencing the unconditional love of God has been so rewarding and while discovering the truth and purpose for my life. Moving forward in this life is not a sprint, but a marathon when it comes to this race here on earth. I am blogging because I find it is a good way to connect in a much more effective and efficient way when it comes to communicating and interacting with with people that I do not know. Blogging and writing challenges me and also stretches me specifically in my thoughts, my mind, my emotions, and my spiritual life to live a vertical relation with God and a horizontal relationship with others. There will be a variety of topics and subjects to address including youth, young adults, family, singles, seniors, relationships, etc. Some of the topics will include God’s creation and power, depression, loneliness, suicide, hope, healing, setbacks, financial matters, business, stress, anxiety, care, encouragement, and so much more I would like to connect with all walks of life, ethnicity, culturally, other religions, socio-economics, and more I am currently writing a book and several memoirs about my own life and journey . The journey begins at a young age growing up in Malden, Massachusetts, specifically Maplewood Square to where I am today. I became paralyzed from the waist down as a senior in high school and I share how my life changed for the better! “But I do not consider my life as something of value or dear to me, so that I may [with joy] finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus. To testify faithfully of the good news of God’s [precious undeserved] grace [which makes us free of guilt of sin and grants us eternal life]. Acts 20:24 Amplified Version
