I believe we all need to remember this as we continue in our battle for the Lord:
1 Samuel 17
45 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. 46 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. 47 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.”
Our enemy is attacking with tons of money, lies, coercion, fear and multitudes of Non-believers. Are we sharing the good news of the gospel? Salvation is the answer and is free for all who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.
Do we stand firm in our faith here in California?
When the whole world is mocking us for our sin. Will we relent and be defeated like the rest of our nation or will we speak the powerful words of David?
Will we stand firm on the Gospel and unashamed – Praise and defend our Lord!?!
Shout Hosannah! Shout Hosannah! We stand firm because We come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.
I was thinking about how defeated my mind and soul were yesterday and today. The enemy was winning in my imagination
After praying for help – that passage of Scripture was what I was reminded of:
Saul tried to prepare David for battle with earthly tools. Armor, the best money could buy.
David declines them. All because his faith was greater.
My question for me is this. How much am I depending on the answers from man? And how much of my faith is planted in the one who created man. How much do I need to accomplish? And how much does the Lord need to accomplish. How many solutions am I seeking. And how much do I need to be repenting. How much am I asking from the Lord for guidance – instead of deliverance And how thankful is my soul for the deliverance that I have already received in Salvation?!?!
Hallelujah. Praise you Jesus. If my eyes are on the storm I wonder if you love me still. But if my eyes are on the cross I know you always have and you always will – Casting Crowns
In all things, I praise the Lord. For what the enemy meant for evil – Gods promise is that He will turn it for GOOD! Genesis 50:20!
Hosannah! Praise! Glory to God on High!
