Topic: HOW DAVID CONQUERED HIS GIANTS 3
Bible Reading: Matthew 10:36
📖36….”And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.”
🔥Man’s battles and challenges can easily be won if they are not sourced from his own family and blood relations. By relations here, friends and colleagues, even Church members are not excluded. So, Jesus’ statement quoted from Matthew 10:36, in our Bible Reading above, is both retroactive, present and futuristic. There hasn’t been a man that made history through God, who never suffered from household giants. Abel was hated and killed by his own brother, Cain in Gen 4:5, 8. Joseph was sold by his own brothers into death in Gen 37:23-28.
🔥🔥King David was not left out in the scourge of household giants’ opposition. When he found what his hands could do by faith to become reputable (Eccles 9:10), household giants, in the persons of his elder brothers appeared in 1 Sam 17:28. Although David wasn’t sent by his father to the battle field to fight, but God, in his infinite love to promote those whose hearts are perfect towards Him (2 Chro 16:9), presented an opportunity for David. The love of brothers, other relations, and refusal to see anything bad in relationship with such, have led many astray from God’s desire to bless and elevate them…Psalm 41:9.
🔥🔥🔥But when David noticed that his brothers were some sorts of giants that needed to be conquered, he turned away from Eliab and synergized with total strangers in 1 Sam 17:30. These none brothers of David later connected him to the king in verse 31, and so David was equipped and blessed by king Saul in verse 38 for the battle. The fact that king Saul clothed David with his armour, signified transfer of authority. And since God wasn’t looking for men, but for a man according to 2 Chro 16:9 and Ezekiel 22:30, to defeat Goliath with, David was good to go as that man. Beloveth, don’t fall to family discouragement to deprive you of fighting for God. The reward is everlasting conquest.
🙏O Lord, deliver me from every secret trap made by my acquaintances, targeted at my downfall in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Omniscient Father, establish me through every opportunity I find myself in, as I work for you and walk with you, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏All-knowing Father, bring me face to face to destiny connectors as you got David connected to king Saul through strangers, in Jesus’ name.
