But David persisted. “I have been taking care of my father’s sheep and goats,” he said. “When a lion or a bear comes to steal a lamb from the flock, 35 I go after it with a club and rescue the lamb from its mouth. If the animal turns on me, I catch it by the jaw and club it to death. 36 I have done this to both lions and bears, and I’ll do it to this pagan Philistine, too, for he has defied the armies of the living God! 37 The Lord who rescued me from the claws of the lion and the bear will rescue me from this Philistine!”
Saul finally consented. “All right, go ahead,” he said. “And may the Lord be with you!” 1 Samuel 17:34-37 NLT
When David came face to face with Goliath, he remembered the lion and the bear and the power of His God. Davids past built incredible courage and trust in God.
Like David, we have a future and a destiny, a purpose we must complete. Its never about the mountains we face, but about our trust in Gods ability to make crooked places straight, to give us power over the mountain.
“So we must ask ourselves, is our focus upon the enemy’s flood? Or are we aware of the standard God is raising up to counter the onslaught of evil? ” Francis Frangipane.
How will we remember the things we’ve gone through in our lives. Will we allow those things to become stumbling blocks or building blocks? We must not react, we must respond! We must rise up in boldness & authority and release the Word, because He watches over it.
I’m thankful that God watches over His Word. When I speak in the authority of His Word, things change around me so that I can do and be what God has called me to. I’m thankful that Gods Word is alive and lives in me.
