Just because you don’t see somebody in Training — does not mean God doesn’t have a plan of action for their lives!
As I was meditating upon The LORD, He spoke this particular portion of scripture to me to night below.
The LORD said unto me that it is not how long one has been in Church or his status; denomination; ethnicity; gender etc., but it is according to His choosing and Grace that a man can defeat the giants that are in one’s life.
Saul, the Philistines and Goliath all saw David as but a youth; somebody who was a novice and had not been trained, but what they failed to understand was that God was training David while he was out doing the work that nobody else wanted to do: tending to dirty sheep out in the pastures.
Many times, we as The Church see training as Elisha and Elijah and “catching the mantle,” but what we failed to see is that The LORD is the best trainer of them all.
He places each one of His People in positions of humility that will cause them to learn what they each need to know in order to get the job done and to fulfill His Plans and His Purposes on the earth.
The Scriptures warn us, not to despise the day of small beginnings because this is not an easy directive to sometimes carry out. Especially when God plants the seed of a dream, down in one’s heart, like most people, you expect it to take off immediately.
But unfortunately in God’s Kingdom, it doesn’t always work out that way (Zechariah 4:10).
This would be a lesson that Saul, the Philistines, Goliath and all of Israel would soon get to experience. For, this is The Word of The LORD saying, “Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, saith The LORD of hosts….” (Zechariah 4:6).
Sometimes people will be so deterred by what they see on the outside, that they will fail to see what God is doing on the inside, that if they are not careful they will miss what God is doing all together.
David said moreover, “The LORD that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine.” And Saul said unto David, “Go, and The LORD be with thee.”
Even though God had called King Saul to lead, he pushed David in the forefront, because he himself lacked both the Grace and the Authority to deal with Goliath — demonstrating poor leadership.
And, so Saul armed David with his armour, and he put an helmet of brass upon his head; also he armed him with a coat of mail. And David girded his sword upon his armour, and he assayed to go; for he had not proved it. And David said unto Saul, “I cannot go with these; for I have not proved them.”
And David put them off him. And he took his staff in his hand, and chose him five smooth stones out of the brook, and put them in a shepherd’s bag which he had, even in a scrip; and his sling was in his hand: and he drew near to the Philistine.
Not in fear, trembling or in disbelief in His God but believing that God would deliver His enemy in His Hands for His Glory!
I believe that God is speaking today and it is time for The People of God to arise and to take back what the enemy has stolen from them!
It is time to arise and to kill the Goliaths in their lives, because God has chosen you for such a time as this!
No more running, dodging the warfare of the enemy, because God has given you both the power and the authority to slay this demonic presence in your lives!
And David said to Saul, “Let no man’s heart fail because of him; thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine.”
And. so the Philistine came on and drew near unto David; and the man that bare the shield went before him.
And when the Philistine looked about, and saw David, he disdained (counted him unworthy) him: for he was but a youth, and ruddy, and of a fair countenance.
And the Philistine said unto David, “Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves?” And the Philistine cursed David by his gods.
And the Philistine said to David, “Come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field.”
Then said David to the Philistine, “Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of The LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.
This day will The LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.
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!”
And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose, and came and drew nigh to meet David, that David hasted, and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine
And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth.” (1 Samuel 17:32-49 KJV)
Just because a person looks like they are not strong enough to destroy their enemies, doesn’t mean that God has not graced them to do so!
