The story is told about the family of Akinsope. Their great ground father died at 50 due to illness. Every other person in the family especially the stars, for one reason or the other, died in the fifties. Hardly do they have anybody making it into the sixties before something claimed their life. A member of the family who became born again and vibrant for God also died at fifty five! It was very painful for brethren. His death was the revelation into the giant that was on assignment to fulfil an age-long covenant.
The father of Saul, Kish was never known for anything significant until the rising of his son to the monarch, that ofcourse by share grace. Saul’s reign was short-lived; his son that would have survived him also died prematurely till nothing significant is heard about his lineage.

- Some made significant impact in life but others take the glory
- Some are sick, and they can trace the sickness to members of the family past and present.
- Some giants are household enemy.
Who is a Giant?
A giant is a threat to uproot you from the foundation, a saboteur, a frustration. Confrontation is face to face one on one engaging the giant in an open battle e.g. David engaged Goliath in an open international battle. He took the battle to the enemy gate and brought victory to Israel.
Today, the Lord is saying to somebody you must engage the giant that has formed a road-block for you and finish him or he finishes you. Many are assigned to find solace in your victory. If you fail to be victorious, you would have incarcerated your generations unborn.
How Do You Confront A Giant?
- Locate him 6:10ff
- Confront him with the word of God I Sam. 17:45
- Confront him by prayer and fasting Resist James 4:7
- Confront him by faith BH 40; 1 Sam. 17:26
- Monitor the monitoring giant causing humiliation, shame, molestation. Stop him today. Make him inactive. Resist, Matt. 18:18; Mk. 15:16.
- Confront him with Joy, Deut. 28:47ff. Receive oil of gladness upon your head to function.
- Celebrate your victory.
Confronting generational giant is a call to a renewed battle. In the first place the call to be a child of God is a spiritual battle against the kingdom of darkness. If you don’t want this battle you will remain un-ceremonial, marking time without impact. Then you pass on when your time comes like snake passing through the rock.
