Take off and shake off every false sense of safety and security. Faith alone in God wins the battle every time….!
Early this morning this verse was quickened to me;
1 Samuel 17:39 says, “David fastened his sword to his armor and tried to walk, for he had not tested them. And David said to Saul, “I cannot walk with these, for I have not tested them.” So David took them off.”
Then I heard the spirit say, “Daughter, faith alone, wins the battle”!
As I heard these words, they deeply impacted me. So I read the verse again, and I saw that David had refused to wear Saul’s armour because he had not tested it!
David knew that faith alone in God had given him the victory before, when he came face to face with the lion and the bear.
David’s faith had been tried and tested in the wilderness surrounded by his father’s sheep.
David had come to rely and depend fully upon God alone.
in the midst of many battles, David knew that wearing Saul’s armour would give me a false sense of safety and security when facing Goliath.
So when David took off Saul’s armour, he took off that which would give him a false sense of safety and security in battle!
And David would place his trust and his expectation fully upon God for the victory. His faith alone assured him that Goliath was no match for his God.
Blessings to you all.
