Using History As Our Weapon | Give Him 15: Daily Prayer with Dutch Sheets – Do we have enough history with God to give us confidence in him? Can we win todays battle through the power of yesterday? We can in fact. We must have history to fight our battle and take out our today’s Goliath. David’s most powerful weapon against Goliath was his history.
What makes history so powerful? The scripture teaches us that generations are connected with both blessings and curses, just like Adams sin was passed on to us from generation to generation. God sees the generational connection so literally that he makes a promise knowing it won’t be fulfilled until a future generation.
For too long, we Christians have viewed accounts of the past moves of God as history, but we haven’t thought of them as something that we can agree with in prayer, connect to or draw power from, we never thought of them as our story.
Our shortsighted reasoning has stolen from us the synergy of the ages; we have not put ourselves in the story line. Since we do not typically agree with past movements or prayers. When we read the bible we should look at it as our history and draw strength from it.
