When David faced Goliath, he chose a sling over a sword. He changed the paradigm and turned a weakness, his size, into his advantage using skill and agility. He defeated an enemy who had overwhelming strength and size.
Goliath was a literal giant, but he represents the giants we face in our lives. Giants are huge, powerful and seem impossible to defeat. The giant that Life Equip Global is facing is the Global Abortion Holocaust.
Holocaust is defined as “destruction or slaughter on a mass scale”. The killing of one in five babies created in the image of God around the world can only be described as a Global Abortion Holocaust. This Global Abortion Holocaust is Satan’s plan for death and destruction of human beings on a global scale.
Those behind this holocaust are huge, powerful and seem impossible to defeat. In the U.S., Planned Parenthood – the largest provider of abortions – has an annual budget of $1,670,000,000 dollars. That’s over one Billion dollars. International Planned Parenthood Federation has an annual budget of $125 million dollars. Marie Stopes International – another global abortion provider – has an annual budget of $393 million dollars. All of these dollars are used to end the lives of approximately 56 million babies annually.
In the United States, over 60 million babies have been killed since abortion was legalized in 1973. In 2015 a study found 15.6 million babies killed by abortions in India – the majority of them girls. The U.S. State Dept. reports 13 million babies killed by surgical abortions annually and another 10 million killed by abortion pills in China. There are a reported 8.2 million children’s lives aborted in Africa every year. An estimated 6.6 million people are aborted in South America annually. The lives of one in five babies around the world are ended by abortion, and in Europe the number is one in three babies lives ended by abortion.
These baby killing organizations seem impossible to defeat. When facing a seemingly impossible obstacle, change the paradigm. And trust God. Jesus said, ‘With God all things are possible’ (Matthew 19:26). … It is the power of God that makes what seems impossible possible. Nothing is impossible with God (Luke 1:37).
You and I are the David’s the Lord has called to respond to the Goliath of abortion. But we know that “we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Ephesians 6:12).
Our adversary is Satan. And he was defeated at the Cross, He has no power over us. I encourage you to partner with us. We might be tiny, but our Lord is mighty. Victory is assured!
20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Ephesians 3:20-21 (NKJV)
