Power In The Word

I Samuel 17:45-47
Memory Verse:
“This day the LORD will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you and take your head from you” (I Samuel 17: 46).

David was the youngest son of Jesse and a shepherd of his father’s sheep. Though the youngest, he was preferred by God to replace king Saul. Following his anointing by Samuel, the Spirit of God came upon him, thereby guiding his utterances, behaviours and actions. He tore a lion and a bear that attacked the sheep that he was keeping (1 Samuel 17: 34-35). He ceased to be the ordinary David, the young shepherd that his brethren knew, after his anointing. Reading through the altercations between him and Goliath, one is bound to conclude that those utterances and words of David were sponsored by the Holy Spirit. No wonder, all David’s pronouncements came to pass, despite the threat from Goliath.

When a man’s ways please the Lord, even the mighty fall before him (Proverbs 16:7); one who was not reckoned with by the world system became a national hero overnight. Whenever anyone chooses to please God, the Holy Spirit resides in that person, such that the person’s utterances and general conducts are backed by God’s power. Lessons for you today are as follows:
1. You must know and have confidence in the God you serve.
2. Be a student of His word and apply it to your situation.
3. Be ready to obey God’s voice, no matter the threat from the enemy.
4. You must be ready to rebuke the voice of the enemy using the word of God.
The power is in you, if only you will let the word of God dwell richly in you and apply it appropriately (Colossians 3:16).

Prayer Points:
1. Lord, letYour word dwell richly in me.
2. Father, give me the grace to always speak and apply Your word rightly.
