Unbelief, lack of faith and fear block us from getting through the difficulties.  Our mind preoccupies itself with thoughts of defeat, rolling over all the horrible outcomes and fretting over them.

Faith, though never ignores the dangers and problems of any circumstance, but looks away from them to God and counts on His presence and power.

What are your “giants”? A habit you cannot break? A temptation you cannot resist? A difficult marriage? A drug abuser or alcoholic?  If we look to our difficulties, we will always be overwhelmed.  Faith though looks AWAY from the overwhelming issue to the greatness of an ever-present, all-powerful God.  So look to God when life comes against you with the worst you can imagine.  God is there for you.
