The intimidation Dr. Tony Evans shares those problems sometimes seem more than they actually are my celebrating faithfulness. This is the alternative Dr. Tony Evans authored speaker, senior pastor of Oakland Bible Fellowship in Dallas Texas and president of the urban alternative giants are just as big a problem now as they were in the time of David and Goliath, just take a different form these days in his final installment from Tony Evans top 40.

Dr. Evans tells us how to defeat them modern-day giants that confront us.

Let's join him as he explains has created an imagery today where people will talk about facing Goliath facing their giant sized situation. We told in verse 17 gathering Champion came out from the team's name name sound like a giant Goliath from Goliath from sound like a freak from gas was six span 6 inches tall.

He would be an MBA coach's dream freak. He's called the champion comes out with a bronze helmet on his way will shackle the Braun man just all my way, we are told that swallow between his shoulders like a weed stairway 600 and a shield also before you makes his appearance before Israel.

Verse 24 when all the from him and were greatly afraid you know when you are problem lies.

But by itself. You went there when they saw the giant while they were greatly on the defense asked for you when you are running it is chasing you in your life when something moves so that you intimidation it will go away verse 16 fall evening for 40 days and took us was Saul scared of Goliath scanner because it's all in the Bible that Saul has drifted from God from God, the bigger your Goliath looks this young boy named David. David West is now impressed with Goliath watches is impressive. Walking for you.

Foot six will get your attention last night and press 26 spoke to the man were standing by him saying Don Stein and takes away the reproach of Israel for some time that he should believe in God. Verse 36 has killed both and will be one of them since you said from the part of the Bay Area. I've gone with you, David is not impressed last week David John has no background or experience brands such what else was looking.

The rep background spiritualize look at and 40 speed look at this ritually. 45 you come to me when you come to me, would you come to me what chaplain you in the name of the law.

You have will strike you and remove the dead, God no more. The law will write to someone else. For this reason, the final question you got the anatomy. It's something that moves so large it intimidates you the attitude you must look at it through a spiritual perspective, not merely a physical or psychological or emotional one final question is how do you approach Goliath when you do, how do you go after it because it is bigger than you. It's not foot six is more skilled than you. It's a champion it's been doing this for a while and you have a background in military service. Remember verse 3737 Saul said go.

May the Lord be with God in prayer. Prayer I will be praying for you, Lord be with you, let it be with me going out. But he could be with you, Lord be with you first God call David garment and put a helmet on his head, David, and the walk before Saul always these use them them all you will solve the big man was to assume he would use to use watch this now using somebody else's, to address your problem, work out your salvation with fear and trembling body fixed Bible for different folks. So now, for you.

You know what to do with simple equipment walk with one comfortable which he couldn't flow if you move in with God because you think you is not cumbersome to you.

It's not what it said it didn't feel right. At a certain direction is right to feel like it's you don't you know their way of doing it that reproach the principal got the principal real principal so you have tested never tried it out utilized.

So many ways God has demonstrated his faithfulness to me into this ministry over these 40 years.

There were times when we just weren't sure we were going to make it. We got down to our last paycheck.

After that there was no money to pay anyone. I remember as having special prayer time and asking God then out of nowhere a donor's heart was touched noticing God placed it on my heart to send you this gift was able to sustain us until we were able to rebuild so I am not a doubt about the greatness of God's am certainly grateful for all the frenzies given been faithful to her grateful 40 years seen this kind hand. Well tomorrow we begin a brand-new series of messages about living with loss to get her started.

Jonathan Evans will remind us that even though a lot is change recently in the way we live our day-to-day lives.
