Praise God, we are still in 1 Samuel 17. I never knew that there was such a wealth of inspiration in this chapter, but God is drawing it out for me. As human beings, we have all been through some stuff. The enemy has attacked all of God's creation, Christian and Non-Christian. We live in a fallen world. Because of these things, we all suffer great hardships. I have a heart for women who have suffered hardships in their lives, great and small. I have a heart for all women, Christian and non-Christian because we are all created in the image of God and we all reflect the glory of God's beauty in our own unique ways. We are all women before we are anything else and that thread knits us together in special ways. I pray that I can expose something in your life today that will set you free! Jesus came to set the captives free and whom the Son has set free is free indeed. Halellujah! I don't know if you wanna be free, but I wanna be set free everyday! Because I know there is some stuff in my life and some stuff in your life that we need to be set free from. It is such an invigorating experience when God provides us with the revelation that is going to set us free in a particular area of life, I pray that this message be that revelation for somebody, thank you Jesus ahead of time for the revelation that will set us free. Thank You Jesus that whom You set free is free indeed. We want that freedom today Lord Jesus, we don't want to be held bondage to any weapon of the enemy Lord God, because we know Your Word says that no weapon formed against us will prosper! Take us through Your Word today Lord, give us a fresh revelation of You today Jesus. In Your precious, powerful, mighty, name I pray. Amen and Amen
1 sam 17
50 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone, and struck the Philistine and killed him. But there was no sword in the hand of David. 51 Therefore David ran and stood over the Philistine, took his sword and drew it out of its sheath and killed him, and cut off his head with it.
This text stands out to me because David took the enemy's sword and killed him with it. This was significant to me because David used the weapon of the enemy to kill the enemy. There have been some weapons formed against us as God's people. Satan has used some hardships in our lives to create weapons of mass destruction. You have to remember the enemy comes to steal, to kill, and to destroy. The devil hates you and he wants to kill you. So he has used some things that have happened in our childhood. He has used some things that have happened to us as adults. But the bible says that all things work together for good to those who love God and are called according to His purpose.
God can take that weapon of abuse in your childhood and turn it around and use it against the enemy in somebody else's life. That weapon of drug abuse, God can turn that around and use it against the enemy to deliver somebody else from drug abuse. Any situation that has taken place in your life as a result of the enemy, God can take his weapon and use it against him in your life and the life of many other's. Whatever weapon the enemy formed against you in your past is the ministry in your future. Confess that right now, with me; "Whatever weapon the enemy formed against me in my past is the ministry of my future". Praise God and thank you God!
