Today, as you face the troubles ahead, ask yourself…have I prepared for today’s battles? In the Bible, David was chosen to face Goliath but before the battle ever begun, and before he ever threw the stone, David KNEW he was victorious!
Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword and with a spear and with a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you down and cut off your head. And I will give the dead bodies of the host of the Philistines this day to the birds of the air and to the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.
1 Samuel 17:45-46 ESV
David had prepared himself by living a life of praise. David walked in confidence knowing that through God he was ALREADY VICTORIOUS…before the battle had even begun. God desires for you to walk in that same confidence! If you are with God, you are already victorious over today’s battles! Whatever the Goliath is in your life…remember Ephesians 6:12. “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.”
Today, you have bigger battles to fight than that boss at work or that slow car up ahead. Live a life of praise. Be prepared. Walk in confidence that you have Victory Before the Battle!
We love you all!
