2nd March 2015
As a father of three children I’ve spent more than my fair share of time going to see Kids' Films at the Cinema - some I've enjoyed and others I've hated.
The films I’ve enjoyed most though are the ones with something for the kids AND the adults – one of the best being Monsters Inc. If you’ve not seen it then it really is a worthwhile watch no matter how old you are.
One thing that struck me when I saw the film is that when the little girl, Boo first met “Top Scarer” Sully she was not in the slightest bit scared of him even though he towered over her like a giant – the clip is here on youtube if you’ve not seen it. However later on in the movie, she sees Sully in a different light in the scene when he’s at his work “scaring” little children.
In yesterday’s message Conquering Heroes, Mark was trying to help us understand just that. Quite simply that the giants we face in life, and the situations we are trying to overcome are often just a matter of perspective. When we do conquer them and the situations and circumstances are behind us the giant is often not as big as we first thought.
Whatever challenges you face this week, rest assured that God is on your side regardless of how big you see the giant!
Be encouraged this week that God is on your side, and that the “The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds” (2 Corinthians 10:4)
Have a great week!
