Good Morning Gorgeous,
It’s a brand new day. A fresh new start.
A new day to rise and be encouraged that you may be facing adversity and struggles today, but the Lord has not left you powerless.
He teaches us throughout both the Old and the New Testament that:
1. The people of God battle differently than the world.
2. Favor rests upon them and when God is for them, nothing can stand against.
3. As they call on Him and turn toward Him, the Lord actively empowers His people for victory.
Friends, whatever your adversity is today. Whatever it is, turn to Jesus this morning and tell Him how good He is. Turn on worship music or speak aloud your praises. Your praise will cause demons to flee and mountains to crumble.
Be BOLD and wage this war in the spiritual realm. Just as David defeated the giant with just a sling and stone while speaking aloud to the giant Philistine “…I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel whom you have defiled. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head…” 1 Samuel 17:45.
And as the rest of the story goes, David defeated the giant with one stone. But the power my friends wasn’t in the stone, it was in the bold power of the Living God whom David spoke aloud right into the face of his giant. He looked Goliath in the eye and said, “You are no match for my God.” And he took him down by the power of the Lord.
The same God now lives on the inside of every believer who professes Christ as their Lord and Savior! So that is you and me!
We can look our giants right in the eye and profess God’s power and watch them move.
Whatever is coming against you today,
Sin or temptation
Pain or trauma
Feelings of defeat
WHATEVER your personal giant is… today you can begin to battle a new way.
In the natural realm, David never had a chance against Goliath. He was bigger by far, he had all the battle equipment of the day, he had on heavy armor, and he had experience.
The whole Israelite army was afraid and even Saul, a great warrior wouldn’t battle the giant. He seemed undefeatable!
BUT GOD!!!!! David steps up to the scene and had the very thing the Giant lacked: the power and favor of the Living God.
And David had FAITH that the Lord would deliver him. He saw with spiritual eyes of faith that the Giant was NO MATCH for God. And he spoke aloud right to the Giant! He honored God and clearly told him who would be victorious that day and why.
We can do the SAME thing.
Speak how big your God is and watch the giants shrink.
It may be a bad day, tough week, horrific month, or whole season of struggle, rise and begin to declare that God is greater than the worry.
God is on your side and He will go before you and behind you and beside you.
Speak and magnify the greatness of the Lord, and the giants lose their power.
Worship your way right into victory!
Dear Heavenly Father,
Let us boldly come before Your throne of grace so that we may receive mercy and grace to help us in our time of need. Lord, put Your Words on our tongue to make the giants flee and the mountains crumble. Make us a bold powerful church of Jesus Christ who are no longer afraid of giants but instead warriors who know how the battles are won!
In Jesus’s name, Amen.
Blessings and Breakthroughs!
