Goliath Must Fall: Winning the Battle Against Your Giants By Louie Giglio Book Review

In Goliath Must Fall, Louie Giglio explored the Biblical story of David and Goliath and how Jesus can help us to slay the giants in our life. The giants can be anything from rejection, fear, anger, addictions, and anything that has power of your life. Louie Giglio shared his own personal struggle with anxiety and depression. He went to numerous doctors to help him try and sleep. Louie wanted to control everything and he wanted approval from others. When he first built his church, he wanted to please everyone and make sure everyone was happy. He realized he had a few giants he had to overcome where he could move forward with his life. One of the important aspects of the book is how critical it is to worship God and how focusing on Him makes our giant smaller. When Louie began to praise God, he finally found peace and healing. He would have to constantly remind himself that whatever problem he was facing he was giving it to God. 

I would recommend this amazing book to anyone who is ready to worship their way out of the giant’s schemes. One of my favorite chapters was the chapter entitled, “A Table in the Presence”. This chapter talked about the importance of not giving the devil a seat at your table. The devil will always reinforce what we aren’t and never will be. He likes to tell us lies where we are discouraged and broken. I liked how Louie Giglio suggested to read Psalms 23 for forty days and forty nights. This passaged reminds us that the Lord is our shepherd and how he can refresh our souls. When we encounter dark valleys, He is with us through it all. The Lord prepares a table for us in front of our enemies and we will always live with Him.
