Facing Your Giants: A David and Goliath Story for Everyday People. Facing Your Giants by LUCADO MAX (2006) Hardcover.

But when David focused on giants, he stumbled. Goliaths still roam in our world.

Modernly Poetic Posted April 23, 2013 Max Lucado’s book Facing Your .

You know your Goliath. You recognize his walk, the thunder of his voice.

He taunts you with bills you can't pay, people you can't please, habits you can't break, failures you can't forget, and a future you can't face. But just like David, you can face your giant, even if you aren't the strongest, the smartest, the best equipped, of the holiest.

David. You could read his story and wonder what God saw in him. His life has little to offer the unstained, straight-A saint. He fell as often as he stood, stumbled as often as he conquered. But for those who know the sound of Goliath, David gives this reminder:

Focus on giants -- you stumble; focus on God -- your giants tumble.

If you're ready to face your giants, let his story inspire you. The same God who helped him will help you.

In Facing Your Giants, Lucado helps us learn how to allow God to work with us and remind us of whom we are to and in Him by relating everything to the story of David.

For example, when David went up against Goliath, although everybody else focused on Goliath's credentials, armor, size, etc., David's focus was on God and God's glory. He had no doubt that the Lord would bring victory against this "pagan who mocks the Lord". And in this, we learn that if we focus on the giants in our lives, we'll lose to them, too. So instead, we need to keep our focus' on the Lord. There's a saying he uses:

Focus on giants - you stumble.
Focus on God - your giants tumble.

In the 2nd chapter, Lucado goes over the anointing of David as king. He explains that God sent Samuel to Bethlehem to anoint somebody new whom God has chosen, for even though Saul was still in office, God no longer considered him king. At the feast with the town's elders and the family of Jessie, Jessie calls his sons in one at a time. Each one, Samuel thought the Lord had chosen, but God continued to turn them down. With all the eldest brothers present, Samuel asks about the 8th child. The word they used for David means not only youngest, but also lowest in status, or rank. David was the runt in the family...the little guy who wasn't seen as much good for work, so they put him with the sheep. But then when David finally walks in, God says to Samuel, "Arise, anoint him, for he's the one I've chosen."

We're reminded that people look on the outside: the color of hair, chest and/or butt size, education, height, weight, bank account and salary, occupation, size of your house, color of skin, make of car, type of clothes you wear...do you have a good face for TV or for radio? But God saw in David what nobody else took the time to notice...God saw "a God-seeking heart." While others measure the outer appearance, God examines hearts, and "when He finds one set on Him, He calls it and claims it." (p. 18)

I can't really tell you much more about it without it becoming a source for cliff notes, so I'll stop here by saying that if you're dealing with giants in your life, or seeking justice, then "Facing Your Giants" by Max Lucado, really is worth the read, for he will teach you not only how to face your giants, but also how to endure and/or conquer your fear of them.

Max Lucado gives a great synopsis on David, as being humble, dependable and most importantly, a seeker of GOD.
David struggled through the jealous rage of Saul, facing the perils of family issues, and even, a moment of vanity,that threatened everything, he had faught for! But, his relationship of GOD, is unparalleled in The Bible.
The evidence, lies in the prolific Psalms he had written, in which has stood the 'test of time!"

Just the book I needed to read. I had just finished reading a real unsetting rubbish book and told my daughter I simply have to read a Max Lucado and opened the first one of the many I have on my Kindle not looking at the title. I was in a very bad space and on Sunday evening I went to church as I was on duty, where on message was on prayer and quite expected it to be the same message I had heard in the morning. You can imagine my surprise when our Pastor brought into a message about "Facing your Giants." When I got home and opened my Kindle to see the book I had chosen was "Facing your Giants." My Pastor told me the next morning it was not in his prepared message, he was lead by God and did not know who the message was intended for. Max thank you for the wonderful books you write. I'm still fighting "giants" with the help of our saviour I will be able to defeat them one day.

Excellent. We all have some kind of a giant in our life and Max Lucado puts many of these giants together with people from the Bible. Our giants may seem different then the people from the Bible but they are not. Take time to read his book and let each chapter come to life and one may find one, two or more that apply.

I would recommend this book because first I love all of Max Lucado books and because he always causes me to see bible stories in a different light and in a way that is relevant for today
  • Blackseeker
This book is about king David whom God described as a man after his own heart. When he trusted in God he could do anything. When he trusted in himself he failed miserably.
I plan to give a copy of this book to each of my children.
  • Frdi
If you are facing an insurmountable problem in your life, You need to read this book. Very encouraging!
Another amazing book from Max. I own the hard copy but put it on my Kindle. This is a great book for a Bible study with the study guide in the back for each chapter. Highly recommend it.
