Scripture Reading: 1Samuel 17:51
Therefore David ran, and stood upon the Philistine, and took his sword, and drew it out of the sheath thereof, and slew him, and cut off his head therewith. And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled
Reflections: The entire Philistine army depended on their champion, Goliath. With him, they intimidated and humiliated Israel for 40 days. When David came to the scene, he defied the size, charisma and strength of Goliath and got ready to challenge him. Demonstrating his dependency on God, he set out to fight Goliath while the army of both sides looked on intensely. With a sling and stone, he struck Goliath dead and cut off his head with Goliath’s sword. At this sight, irrespective of their number, warfare experiences and weapons of warfare, the philistine army could not help but take to their heels, abandoning the battlefield. Israel consequently won the battle. Until you deal with what drives the confidence of your enemies, they are not likely to leave you alone. Like David, look for the ‘Goliath’ factor amid your enemies and overthrow it in prayer.
Prayer: Oh Lord, let the confidence of my enemies be overthrown.
Confession: The confidence of my enemies has been overthrown.
