Memorise:
So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling
and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew
him; but there was no sword in the hand of David.
1 Samuel 17:50
Read: 1 Samuel 17:45-50
45 Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to
me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a
shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD
of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou
hast defied.
46 This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine
hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head
from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of
the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and
to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may
know that there is a God in Israel.
47 And all this assembly shall know that the LORD
saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is
the LORD’S, and he will give you into our hands.
48 And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose,
and came and drew nigh to meet David, that David
hasted, and ran toward the army to meet the
Philistine.
49 And David put his hand in his bag, and took
thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the
Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into
his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth.
50 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling
and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew
him; but there was no sword in the hand of David.
Message
A mission is a special assignment commissioned by
a higher authority. Generally speaking, missions are
known to involve some level of difficulty and
challenges. Therefore, they are generally identified
with uncertainty, opposition, criticism, anxiety, risk
and fear. This fact is evident in all those who were
commissioned for one assignment or the other in
the Bible. Noah as a man on a mission experienced
all these. Nobody believed him until the word of the
Lord came to pass (Luke 17:27). Abraham’s
experience was the same. At a point, he risked
losing his beautiful wife because of the fear of the
unknown (Genesis 20:2-3). The assignment of
Moses was especially marked with difficulties that
made him experience negative conditions on a
much higher level. Other important figures in the
Bible like Joseph, Joshua, Daniel, Nehemiah, and
David were not left out; they all had terrible
encounters on their mission to fulfil their
assignments, but by the grace of God, they all
accomplished their missions successfully. I
therefore decree over your life: no matter how
difficult your assignment is, and no matter what you
are passing through on the assignment, your
mission will be accomplished successfully in Jesus’
Name.
A person on a mission is usually misunderstood,
especially when he or she is being controlled by the
Holy Spirit. This is usually because the fellow
receives divine instructions which are guaranteed to
bring success, but are usually at variance with
human understanding. David, as a man on a divine
mission, accomplished his mission in grand style by
taking some specific steps. He did not allow
opposition and criticism to discourage him, but
remained focus on his assignment. David identified
with the Almighty God and relied on the power in the
word of God as the ultimate weapon of war. He
trusted completely in God for victory to the point of
boasting about it. He was ill-equipped for battle
because he had no sword, yet he confidently
approached his assignment with boldness, and God
crowned his efforts with resounding victory. Do you
have a mission, vision, or idea that has become a
passion in you? Are you in anyway handicapped
because of lack of money, human connection, or
assistance? Are you in a disadvantaged position
because of your family background or upbringing?
My friend, do not fret over your situation. Put your
trust in God, and your mission will be accomplished
in due time in Jesus’ Name.
PRAYER POINT:
Father, accelerate the accomplishment of my goals
in life by the wisdom of Your Spirit.

Good morning, how was your night?

Compliment of the season?
