? (Shoot back -2)
Yesterday, we saw how brother *Nehemiah “shot” back at his antagonists in;*
✔Nehemiah 2:20a MSG
I shot back, “The God-of-Heaven will make sure we succeed…✔
Today, we shall be looking at another man who ” *shot* ” back while his brethren, well trained soldiers were still frightened.
?His name was David.
1 *Samuel 17:11MSG* When Saul and his troops heard the Philistine’s challenge, they were terrified and lost all hope?
?Goliath was a man-mountain whose presence alone commanded not just respect, but fear and trepidation amongst *MERE* men, but, not so with David.
David was a man who not only knew how to shoot, but, how to shoot with the right one.
” *The battle against Goliath was not a battle of ‘sizes’ but a battle of sides* .
?The side you are on and who is on your side is always the game changer.✔
Oftentimes, situations causes us to forget who really is on our side and consequently forces us to be on the defensive.
?Sicknesses could sometimes be overwhelming.
?Persistent failure, lack, unfruitfulness etc
The armies of Israel were sore afraid that not a single one of them could take up the challenge from Goliath.
✔David knew who was on his side…he knew the God of Israel never let’s anyone down and so, that gingered him and put steel in his spine.??
✔David shot back…he said in
1 Samuel 17:45 MSG
David answered, “You come at me with sword and spear and battle-ax. I come at you in the name of God-of-the-Angel-Armies, the God of Israel’s troops, whom you curse and mock.
??That was all David needed to do. He shot back with the WORD & committed God to action.
*You must read the WORD daily and let it put steel in your spine.*
Overwhelming challenges oftentimes don’t herald their coming… They pull a fast one on us most times when we are unprepared.
You only commit the host of heaven to action with the WORD.
Arise and shoot back today with the WORD of God & those Goliath will come crashing down like Humpty Dumpty in Jesus name
