Scripture Reading: 1 Samuel 17
There are many forms of giants that will try to stop us from reaching our destiny. They will put obstacles in our way to make it seem impossible for us to get a breakthrough. Oftentimes, we will try everything we can think of, and reach out to almost everyone for help to us defeat our enemy. And just like the Israelites trying to overcome the Philistine army, all our efforts fail. Then only after we have finally exhausted every option that we think can think of, a still small voice will let us know we have not tried Him. Is that what you are going through now? Well, if it is, the Lord has a word for you:
Do not look at the giants in your life and say that you cannot conquer them; for as big as they are, there is always a way to make them fall. You do not need to use a great army to bring them down. You can bring them down in a simple way. You can bring them down with a single word of faith in My name.
With the word of God, you can bring any giant in your life its knees. My servant David would have failed in hand-to-hand combat with Goliath, because he would have been fighting in his own strength. David knew what he needed to defeat Goliath. David needed Me; he needed My strength. So, I ask you, why are you trying to overcome the giants in your life with your own strength?
You cannot win this battle in the flesh. For 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. (Eph. 6:12) You need to use My strength and My weapons against the enemy to destroy him. David knew this, and when he stood to face Goliath, he did not stand in his own natural strength; he stood in the strength and power of His God. David was standing for Me; David was fighting for Me, and I was not going to let him lose.
1 Sa. 17:43-47 And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. And the Philistine said to David, Come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field.
David said to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied. This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.
You see, My child; it's not you whom the enemy hates. It’s not you whom the enemy is attacking. It’s the Jesus in you that he is coming against. Recognize right now that the enemy is coming against the God that you serve; the God you represent. He is coming against the God, who has delivered you, kept you, healed you, and the God who blesses you every day. Get fired up like David, and face your giants. Let the enemy now know who you are, whom you represent, and who is on your side. Do not face them in your power; face them in the power and strength of the Lord, a combination that cannot lose. Win this battle for Me.
2Sa. 22:33 God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect.
In My Name, stand in the anointing that I have put in your life! Stand in the power that I have imparted in you! Stand in My power, fight the good fight of faith, and know that I will win the battle for you. Stand, go forth in the name of Jesus, and with every step you take unleash the power of My word against the giants in your way. Do not stop speaking My word until they are falling at your feet. It was not the rock that defeated Goliath; it was the faith David had in Me that knocked Goliath off his feet.
Rise up now in your spiritual authority. Rise up in the strength of the Lord and know there is nothing in the world that will stand against you when you come in My name. Rise up in My name, and all the earth will know that when I am for you, who can be against you? Rise up and fight this battle; do it for Me. I won't let you fail.
