How long has your Goliath dominated your days and pilfered your peace?

Like David, you know well the presence of Goliath. Your Goliath doesn’t carry a sword or shield; he brandishes blades of unemployment, abandonment, or depression. Your giant doesn’t parade up and down ancient hills; he prances through your office, your bedroom, your classroom. He brings bills you can’t pay, addictions you can’t resist, a past you can’t shake, and a future you can’t face.

How long has your Goliath stalked you? Invaded your first thought of the morning and last worry of the night?

David knows a little something about facing giants. The shepherd boy seemingly had little to offer against the nine-foot, nine-inch Goliath. You could read his story and wonder what God saw in him. Throughout his life, David fell as often as he stood, stumbled as often as he conquered.

But for those who know the threat of a Goliath, David gives this reminder:
Focus on Giants—You Stumble.Focus on God—Your Giants Tumble.
Are you ready to face your giant? Let David’s story inspire you. The same God who helped him will help you.

  • Simply amazing book

    By Sharon Beaman
    Facing your Giants was the first Max Lucado book that I read after my battle with cancer. God had already given me victory but fear held me back from moving forward with my life. This book was what I needed at that time in my life and for anyone struggling with fear, disappointments, rejections, etc. Pastor Lucado is a gifted writer and speaker and his books are simple, elegant and powerful. I started underlining important sections until I realized that I was pretty much underlining the entire book, it's one of those books that you must go back and reread over and over again. Keep it on your nightstand so when your Giants wants to keep you from peace and sleep pick it up and read over it. What a blessing God has given His word and message through Pastor Lucado.
