Believe it or not, every human being is a spirit being. As spirit beings, our real identity is not physical but entirely spiritual. The real realm of existence is the invisible spiritual realm. And determining a person's true state of existence in regards to for instance whether a person is truly dead or alive, weak or strong, successful or failure is completely a spiritual matter and not physical. Basically, whether or not a person in the spiritual sense is by nature an ant or a giant depends on the spiritual head the body is subjected to and not a matter of physical height, looks, might or natural abilities. A human body whose spiritual head is the devil will be a spiritually dead human being walking and will be occupied by all manner of demonic entities and forces of evil. And as a result, he or she will be completely lifeless, powerless and clueless about the true state of his or her spiritual captivity and possession by evil spirits. A person occupied by the Holy Spirit of God will be fortified from evil attacks and will be full of God's dominion power and holy authority (Ephesians 6:10-18).
A person occupied by God's Spirit is a real spiritual giant in all realms and dominion. And irrespective of his or her circumstances, physical stature, height or natural life circumstances, he or she will remain in all situations more than a conqueror. The real spiritual giant as revealed for instance in the story of David and Goliath was not Goliath but David (1 Samuel 17). David was the real giant simply because God the Creator of heaven and the earth was on His side as the Sovereign Head and ruler that is above all. And whosoever has God on his or her side is automatically a winner against any naturally looking giants who without God are nothing but spiritual ants.
David although picked five stones from the brook, he only needed just one stone to catapult down Goliath the fake spiritual giant. The mighty victorious stone weapon David used to catapult down Goliath is symbolic of Christ Jesus the chief cornerstone of the bodily temple of the redeemed (Ephesians 2:20, 1 Peter 2:6). The four stones left with David is symbolic of open door and heavenly gateway that we need to enter, in order for us to have access into God's eternal supernatural presence and be a partaker of His supernatural dominion power and holy authority. And this Door, which is our only gateway and access point to reconciling with God's Holy Spirit is also Christ (John 10:1-10).
Jesus Christ as the root of Jesse and David's key of victory, Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Door and chief-cornerstone is God's Word of dominion and authority manifested in the flesh (Isaiah 11:10, John 1:1-14, Romans 15:12, Revelation 3:7, Revelation 5:5). And no Goliath can stand in your way when Jesus the All-in-all victorious chief cornerstone and Door of life rests and abides in your bodily temple. For at the mentioning of the name of Jesus Christ, every knee must surely bow and every tongue in heaven and earth will surely confess that Jesus is LORD to the glory of our heavenly Father (Philippians 2:9-11).
If you are a child of God reading this today and you are feeling harassed or oppressed by a Goliath problem, arise now and face Goliath head on in the might and power of Jesus Christ the Door and chief cornerstone of life. Jesus as your victorious spiritual Head has already destroyed Satan who as spirit of death itself is the head of every Goliath fake giant spirit. And if the head is cut off, what then can a headless powerless body do to you?
Rise up O child of God! Remove every Goliath spirit from your path of spiritual progress and catapult down every fake spiritual giant with the power that is in the name of JESUS. Be the spiritual giant and victorious soldier that you are meant to be in Christ. Operate in faith and don't let the defeated Goliath spirits cripple you with fear. In Christ you are the real champion. Therefore, Arise! Shine in the might, power and glory of Jesus the light of life. For greater is the heavenly Jesus that is in you than the entire already defeated evil spirits of this fallen world.
"Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world" (1 John 4:4).
