1ST SAMWEL 18.14 – In everything he did he had great success, because the LORD was with him. (NIV)
It is one thing to believe and depend on The Lord but it is another important thing to Know that The Lord is forever with you.
It is one thing to desire to be like God and live totally for Him but it is another thing for God to make you be what He desires.
David didn’t just get motivated to kill Goliath because The King had a reward sworn for whoever will kill the enemy: David knew from before that The Lord of The Armies was to fight the battle. David had seen The Lord Deliver a Lion and a Bear to his hands and He knew the same Lord will deliver the uncircumcised philistine to him… <><><>>>>1Sam.17.37 The LORD who delivered me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.” Saul said to David, “Go, and the LORD be with you.” (NIV)
He killed the Bear and the lion but Knew that His victory was because The Lord was with Him. Goliath came torturing the Israelites for 40 days with the same words but drew his confidence in himself as a warrior and in his experience in war. DAVID Drew His confidence in The Lord of Hosts.
Saul tried dressing David for war like his other soldiers but David couldn’t even walk in them. Never fight your Battles dressed on other’s ornaments. Their Battles need their resources: OUR battles needs ours. Everyone has their Battles. Don’t expect people to fight your Battles. Ooh my pastor is praying for me about the matter… I’m relaxed and waiting to see God answers to Him… Own a Battle and fight it with what it takes. The enemy’s defiance is just to threaten and instill fear in you. DRAW YOUR CONFIDENCE FROM THE LORD OF HOSTS.
We see David throwing him one fine stone and the enemy lays down with the head… according to physics: The force could have made him fall with the back but we see David threw the stone but THE ROCK of Ages did the fighting. David slew the enemy with his own sword because he hadn’t carried any with him.
So reflect on this today…
Do you have confidence in I AM THAT I AM?
Do you believe that HE can make your heart His Habitation? Your body His dwelling place ?
He can live in you and direct your steps. He will fight your battles and make you an Overcomer and a Ruler over the enemy.
You don’t just need to wait to a point of loosing it all to have HIM help you: Have Him from the start. Let Him Lead you through.
Your testimonials will be of victories that He gave you. You will fight and win but Know that He did it for you. As He takes the Glory in your wins, You will have victories to celebrate for being a great vessel of honour for His noble purposes.
BECAUSE HE IS IN YOU….YOU WON’T BE AFRAID. YOU WONT BE IN DARK. YOU WON’T BE DEFEATED. YOU WON’T ENGAGE WHERE YOU SHOULD HAVE WITHDRAWN. HE IS YOUR LIGHT: YOUR SHIELD: YOUR STRONG TOWER AND YOUR REASON FOR LIVING.
BECAUSE YOU’RE WITH ME
