SCRIPTURE: “And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give you into our hands.” – 1 Samuel 17:47
God wants us to have confidence in Him, in all things and at all times. This the assurance we have when we wait upon Him patiently and trust absolutely in His strength and power. We shall not only be victorious over our adversaries but also stand strong believing that God is in us and with us (Romans 8:28).
In today’s Fire Scripture, we read about the popular and interesting story of David and Goliath. Wait a bit and ponder, why is it that all the mighty men present at the war front could do nothing but melted at each boasting and threatening of Goliath, an ordinary Philistine? Not only did he harrass and torment the people with his words, he also weakened their minds and hands such that they felt powerless. He also spoke disdainful words against the God of Israel. What an effrontery and insult against the Lord God Almighty! Goliath was operating in human confidence and ego, but the children of Israel lost all confidence and forgot they have the Almighty Himself on their side, even King Saul!
The same happens when we are confronted with enemies that appear too strong for us. But this should not be so! Rather, refuse to be caught in the web of the enemies threat. When the evil giant comes against you, instead of being fearful, remember the Lord your God and receive boldness against fear. Fear is a thing of the mind. Once your mind is captured, you are crippled from within. It now becomes difficult or almost impossible to make a movement or take an action. That was what happened to the warriors of Israel. They lost grip!
What have you lost grip over? Your life, marriage, academics, business, ministry or your health? The Bible says that as a child of God, when you are standing in righteousness, you must be bold as a lion. That was what David did, as against the mighty men of war, clothed in heavy armour ready for battle, but feeble in the mind. David boldly confessed his victory even before stepping out to confront Goliath. He remembered how the Lord had helped him in time past; he believed that God would still do the same. In fact, he rated the giant to be like one of the wild animals that he killed by the power of God. God saw his confidence in Him and gave him the forehead of Goliath. The giant fell down and died. So shall all your giant enemies fall before you, in the name of Jesus.
- Boasting enemies, receive the stones of fire and die, in the name of Jesus.
- I receive the sling of fire to hit the forehead of my Goliath and bring him down, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, increase my faith in You and strengthen my mind, in the name of Jesus.
- Goliath of my father’s house, your end has come, fall down and die, in the name of Jesus.
- Powers assigned to drain my confidence in God, lose your grip over my life and die, in the name of Jesus.
- I refuse to surrender to the enemy. My enemies shall surrender to me, in the name of Jesus
- Father, strengthen my mind against the antics of the devil, in the name of Jesus.
