Topic: HOW DAVID CONQUERED HIS GIANTS 1
Bible Reading: 1 Samuel 17:23, 26, 25
📖23….”And as DAVID talked with them, behold, there came up the champion, the Philistine of Gath, Goliath by name, out of the armies of the Philistines, and spake according to the same words: and David heard them.
📖26….And David spake to the men that stood by him, saying, What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine, and taketh away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?
📖25….And the men of Israel said, Have ye seen this man that is come up? surely to defy Israel is he come up: AND IT SHALL BE, THAT THE MAN WHO KILLETH HIM, THE KING WILL ENRICH HIM WITH GREAT RICHES, AND WILL GIVE HIM HIS DAUGHTER, AND MAKE HIS FATHER’S HOUSE FREE IN ISRAEL.”
🔥You haven’t fought any fight if you can’t make your family to be free from any kind of debilitating challenge. The desire of David from childhood, was to be an instrument of deliverance for his family, and for Israel at large…Rom 9:3. David saw any form of oppression as giants that must be confronted and conquered. Hence, as a teenager, he took care of his father’s sheep alone in the desert to combat the giant called poverty and lack. So, when he was sent by his father in 1 Sam 17:17, to take food to his brothers in the battle field , he saw it as an avenue to give help to Israel through the captain of the thousand…1 Sam 17:18.
🔥🔥Even though David was a young lad, lack made Jesse, his father, to send him alone into the field to graze with the flocks. David never hesitated to go into the desert alone, because he wanted to be of help to alleviate his family from poverty. So, when he got to the valley of Elah in 1 Samuel 17:19, and heard Goliath defying the army of Israel, which was the army of the living God, he saw an opportunity to lift his family out of oblivion.
🔥🔥🔥He knew no one fought for the king without a reward. He quickly asked the solders in 1 Sam 17:26, what the king would reward whoever killed Goliath with. Their response in verse 25, impressed him, and he used his sling to kill Goliath. That was the end of giant poverty and lack in Jesse’s family. David’s family was enriched with riches, he was given the king’s daughter for a wife, and the family of Jesse was freed from taxation. Beloveth, even in the Church, once you confront whatever is bringing shame to the body of Christ, you will be rewarded by God…Num 25:6-13.
🙏Heavenly Father, give me the zeal to fight for your Church against every condemnation in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏O Lord, use my commitment to your work, to supply the needs of my family in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Blessed Redeemer, open my eyes to see, confront and conquer the giants in every avenue from which my family breakthroughs would come, in Jesus’ name.
