Open Heavens 19th Jan 2018 READ: 1 Samuel 17:32-37

32 And David said to Saul, Let no man’s heart fail because of him; thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine.

33 And Saul said to David, Thou art not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him: for thou art but a youth, and he a man of war from his youth.

34 And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father’s sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the
flock:

35 And I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of his mouth: and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him.

36 Thy servant slew both the lion and the
bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall
be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God.

37 David said moreover, The LORD that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And
Saul said unto David, Go, and the LORD be with thee.

Since Satan was cast out of heaven, he has been waging war against everything that
represents God and godliness on the earth
(Matthew 16:23, 2 Timothy 3:12).

prepared for him and his cohorts (Matthew
25:41, Revelation 20:10). Read Rccg Fasting Day 9 Prayer Points

declares these words to you:

“Thou art my battle ax and weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms;”

The nations and kingdoms in this
declaration are not just physical, they are spiritual. Open Heaven 17 January 2018

that the weapon with which we wage war in God’s army are not physical weapons (2
Corinthians 10:4-5).

It is interesting to note that even Goliath, as huge as he was and as sophisticated as his weapons were, did not rely on his physical ability or weapons alone.

1 Samuel 17:43b says,
“And the Philistine cursed David by his
gods.”

As God’s foot soldier, you need to know your God through and through, because
only those who know their God can perform valiantly at the battlefront (Daniel 11:32).

Because David knew his God, even without a sword in his hand, he boldly replied Goliath with these words of faith in 1 Samuel
17:45-46:
“…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…”

Are you presently fighting a battle in your life? This should serve as a template for you.
turn to God for victory and you shall be victorious in Name and Blood of Jesus Christ
(Luke 10:17, Philippians 2:10, Revelation
12:11).
