The following is one of my favorite scriptures for it reveals the confidence David had in God and his unwavering stance to speak the Word of God by His Spirit (1Sam 16.13) in the midst of perceived trouble. David never let the mocking’s of others change his relationship with God. What others have said about David never influenced God to
remove the anointing from David either.
David wasn't invited to the battle as a soldier of King Saul, but as a servant of his father Jesse: to bring food to his older brothers in battle. David arrived and was appauled that this "uncircumcised Philistine" was still standing. So David drew on the strenght of God and defeated the enemy.
There was a reason David tended sheep and his completed responsibilities are still affecting men and women today for the cause of Christ. What will be said of your life?
Have you been “hidden” by God and you want out? Are others you’ve encouraged advancing beyond your current
state? Are you sure others have the wrong idea about you? Hold tight and fear not. There is a set time for your release. Just as God delivered David and the Israelites from the Philistines, He will do the same for you. Your part, stay in God’s face (2 Tim.4.1-5), remain fearless and when He says pursue, overtake and recover all (1 Sam 30.8), YOU DO IT.
Time is up for the Believer being backed into a corner and allowing the enemy to choke the word of God.
Receive ye the Holy Spirit and go with God!
Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But 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. And this day I will give the carcasses of the camp of the Philistines to the birds of the air and the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. Then all this assembly shall know that the Lord does not save with sword and spear; for the battle is the Lord’s, and He will give you into our hands.” (1 Sam 17.45-47)
