God is Releasing a ‘Goliath’ Stone

by | Aug 12, 2015 | Woman

Recently, our family was having a leisurely summer dinner on our patio. At the end of the meal my daughter directed my attention to a rock on the deck just behind my chair. When I turned to look at the rock a word sprung up unexpectedly in my heart with such intensity that I got up from the table and went to my computer to begin transcribing what I was hearing.

The Lord said, “I am releasing a Goliath Stone.” I asked the Lord to help me understand what He meant.

He said, “I am sending a stone of truth into the forehead of a deceiving cultural giant. This stone has been hidden, but will soon be discovered and picked up by those who carry the heart and spirit of My servant David. When they pick up this stone and run toward the giant, they will not let fear stand in their way. Once released the stone will sink its truth deep within the lies now manifesting in your culture. I am about to bring down a giant many consider undefeatable.”

In the last few months, we have seen people become overwhelmed at the level of evil and cultural insanity being displayed. We have seen altered gender identities paraded before our eyes as something to celebrate. The definition of marriage held sacred for millennia is now being redefined apart from Biblical truth. The gruesome sale and barter of body parts from aborted babies has been uncovered. God is about to defeat the giant who is creating the delusion brought about by these deceptions.

David’s Faith in God… Strike Down the Giant!

As a young man, David was not seen as someone who possessed the ability to defeat an opponent as powerful as Goliath. God retrieved David from a place of isolation and preparation and made him a victorious warrior in dramatic fashion. As Goliath stood and mocked the God of Israel, God revealed to David an unconventional method to bring down the giant. David’s courage grew out of his love for God more than a love for his own life. His faith in God displaced his fear of Goliath.

We are about to see the same thing take place. God will bring some of you out from places of isolation and preparation to accomplish unconventional feats of courage similar to David defeating the mocking giant Goliath. You may appear small and insignificant in the eyes of the giant and his opposing cultural army, but God has a plan to use you to change what appears unchangeable and defeat what seems undefeatable.

The truth you release will have the same result as the stone David flung at Goliath. That stone struck Goliath’s head – the center of his thinking. God is about to strike down the insanity of the lies being raised up against the knowledge of God. He will prove Himself mightier than the greatest deception being shouted by the strutting giants of our culture. (Photo via Wikimedia)

As Goliath moved closer to attack, David quickly ran out to meet him. Reaching into his shepherd’s bag and taking out a stone, he hurled it with his sling and hit the Philistine in the forehead. The stone sank in, and Goliath stumbled and fell face down on the ground. 1 Samuel 17:48-49.
