“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.” I Samuel 17:48
David “hasted” and “ran toward” the giant. Putting all of his fears and reservations aside, he moved swiftly to engage the enemy.
Giants are killed through bold, aggressive faith! Many good soldiers have fallen because of tentative indecisiveness. Face your problem head on. Do not try to sneak up on it or defeat it slowly. Sound the attack and charge!
Jesus said, in Matthew 16:18, that the “gates of hell” would not prevail against the Church. The implication here is that you have the ability to aggressively batter down the gates of bondage, and the enemy will not be able to stand up to all the pounding! Attack your discouragement with hope in God’s Word. Attack your disappointment with a song of joy.
Do your part . . . run with directed purpose at the enemy. Remember, “… the battle is the Lord’s” (I Samuel 17:47b), and He will deliver that tiny stone directly to the forehead of the enemy!
“Father, a stone seems so little to accomplish such a large task; yet little by little, ‘precept upon precept,* You teach me and accomplish miracles in my battles. Thank You! Amen.”
