1Samuel 17:4 “And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.”
Joshua 11:22 “There was none of the Anakims left in the land of the children of Israel: ONLY IN GAZA, IN GATH, AND IN ASHDOD, THERE REMAINED”
I guess they must have been saying there is no problem with these ones, they’re just a tiny group of weak harmless folks occupying a very small parcel of land. They mean no harm. Just few kids with weak women who cannot even hold a weapon.
Well, those weak few folks stayed in that small space but Israel woke up one day to discover those few folks have developed into giants and champions! The seemingly weak and harmless folks have become dangerous neighbors who were no longer interested in cohabiting with Israel.
They want the whole land. They are no longer interested in their given “inch” of land, they now want “hecters” of the whole land! They were not even asking nicely, they want it by war. They were well harmed and have a champion to enforce it.
Such is the plight of a man or woman who gave place to the devil. The enemy you fail to destroy totally didn’t go away, he simply went into hiding to go and grow a champion. He’ll always come back to hunt and hurt you.
That “little sin” which you said meant nothing has suddenly become a terrible destructive sin. Those little “white lies” can grow to become the controlling factors in your life.
The little unchecked anger of Moses grew to prevent him from the Promised Land. The small envy of Cain suddenly killed Abel! The little womanizing of David have suddenly murdered Urriah! The secret affection for strange women in the life of Solomon have produced seven hundred wives and three hundred concubines (1Kings 11:3).
That your little “self-pride” have suddenly grown into arrogance of uncontrollable proportion. When you give the devil an inch he will take hectares from you.
To be continued…
