8. Proclaim His Word

Last week we saw that David went just as he was to face Goliath. He didn't take any extra precautions and he didn't take the armor of Saul, he didn't want anything that he wasn't used to. He trusted God without wavering. David walked up to Goliath with only five smooth stones in his shepherd bag as well as his staff in his hand. He was ready to face the giant.

Now as we might suspect, the giant immediately taunted David. He tried to make him lose his nerve. He talked down at David and really scorned him. But it is wonderful to see that it didn't faze David in the least. In fact when Goliath swore by his gods, it spurred David on even more. David then replied exalting God and giving all honor to Him.

"I come to you in the Name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you and take your head from you…..for the battle is the Lord's and He will give you into our hands." 1 Samuel 17:45, 46, 47b

Isn't it wonderful? David proclaimed no glory for himself; he honored God all the way! He gave all glory to Him Who he knew would deliver him. I love it. David also didn't have the slightest doubt that God would not help him. He trusted Him wholly and without wavering. And God honored that. David threw one stone at Goliath and it struck his forehead and he fell down dead. David ran over and didn't take any chances. He took the sword of Goliath and cut off his head with his own sword. Victory which David proclaimed orally became a reality.

We also need to proclaim our victory orally. We need to speak out loud what is true of us according to the Bible. We did a whole series on Kingdom living and what is now true of us today because we belong to Christ, so I am not going to go into detail right now. But we need to proclaim who we are. The Bible tells us that we are more than conquerors through Him that gives us the strength. We are royalty, a priesthood serving God, we are His children, royal heirs to the Kingdom, His bride and so I can go on. We need to proclaim that and stand up in who we truly are. Then the enemy cannot do anything against us. You see if your mind is filled with the Word of God, the energy of His Word will shine forth and change this world according to what His Word proclaims.

All your thoughts are energy. It has been proven scientifically, I cannot go into detail here, but what you think, you eventually say and what you say eventually becomes your reality. It really does. That is why God's Word says, as a man thinks, so he becomes (Proverbs 23:7). It is therefore pivotal what goes on inside your thoughts. That is why God says we need to renew our minds (Romans 12:2). We need to start thinking as He does and when we do, His power starts to work, and His energy starts to flow through us and His reality for us manifests.

David had zero doubts in his mind that God will help him, literally nothing. And that is why he could defeat his giant. We need to have that total conviction too. And we have an even bigger advantage, we have His Spirit inside of us, helping us each step of the way.

Start reading His Word, start believing what is true of you, start proclaiming it, start renewing your thoughts and then see how you start living it. A new day would dawn for you! Rejoice. God is for you, who can ever be against you?!

Father thank you for Your precious Word. Thank you that we can take all of it to heart and believe what it is true of us. We are so grateful. Thank you for Your good plans for our lives and that You are right there beside us, leading the way as our Lion of Judah. Hallelujah, all the giants will fall. Amen

    What is interesting is that the giant tried to intimidate David. We experience that on a regular basis and it is good to know that even David was taunted. We just have to stay strong and not move from the truth
