One of my all time favorite movies is Facing the Giants, by Sherwood Pictures. A memorable moment from the movie comes when “Grant Taylor,” played by Alex Kendrick, feeling broken and having come to the end of himself, finally comes to the One Person, Jesus Christ, Who can help him. It goes like this:
“Lord Jesus, would you help me? I need you. Lord, I feel that there are giants of fear and failure staring down at me, waiting to crush me. And I don’t know how to beat ’em, Lord. I’m tired of being afraid. Lord, if you want me to do something else, show me. If you don’t want me to have children, so be it. But You’re my God. You’re on the throne. You can have my hopes and my dreams. Lord, give me something. Show me something.”
Facing giants of fear and failure is something every person has to do at one point or another. The only antidote to fear is faith–faith in Jesus Christ. Faith and fear cannot abide within us at the same time. The interesting thing is that making myself tougher, and thinking myself stronger–having an “I can beat anybody, just let me at ’em!” attitude is the opposite of what the answer is. Instead, humbly coming to the Lord, admitting I can’t do it, and that He’s my Only Help, is the beginning to receiving the power to conquer fear through faith in Him.
