Topic: HOW DAVID CONQUERED HIS GIANTS 6
📖6….”And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.”
📖13….”Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
📖14….But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.”
🔥Let’s look at another giant that David, like we believers of God must fight to conquer, if we are to acclimatize. That enemy is so dangerous, yet it follows us wherever we go. That enemy is ourselves. David, like Alexander the great conquered Goliath to become king, but he couldn’t conquer himself. His emotions were stronger than the poverty in his family, the lion and the bear, his elder brothers, Goliath and even king Saul. He was able to confront and conquer each and everyone of those giants, but he couldn’t conquer himself. Except you conquer yourself, you can’t please God.
🔥🔥Alexander the Great conquered almost the whole world in 13 years, but himself conquered him in fewer years. He couldn’t get rid of his love for alcohol, and it became his undoing bane. This led to his death at the young age of 32. Same with David who couldn’t control his appetite for women; and so soiled his hands with the blood of Uriah the Gittite, a member of God’s army, the husband of Bathsheba. The murder of Uriah by king David through General Joab, cost David the pleasure and honour of building God’s house…1 Chro 28:3.
🔥🔥🔥David had conquered all his external giants, but hidden in him was a greater giant which was himself. For him to defeat this giant, he had to own up in 2 Samuel 12:1-14. Yet he wasn’t allowed to build God’s house because of the effects of this giant in his life. It was also the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life, hidden by Achan as giants in himself, that led him to self destruction in Joshua 7:1,16-26. Beloveth, what is that habit that you can’t break that has become part of you? It will prevent you from entering into heaven. Break it before it becomes your mortal enemy.
🙏O Lord, reveal and destroy from me, every habitual attitude of mine, which is capable of growing into a mortal enemy within me, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Precious Father, deliver me from shedding the blood of my faith brothers or sisters through gossips, condemnations, hatred, or false allegations, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Heavenly Father, erase from me by the blood of Jesus Christ, every negative effect my past bad life has on me today, in Jesus’ name.
