DCLM Daily Manna 19 December 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F Kumuyi
Topic: The Battle Is The Lord’s
Text: 1 Samuel 17:38-51 (KJV)
Key Verse: “And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD’S, and he will give you into our hands” (1 Samuel 17:47).
Message: The enemy’s stature was greatly intimidating. A giant, he was! In warfare, he was a veteran; an undefeatable champion of his time. His weapons, built for his defence and for the destruction of his opponents were unique. He was proud, boastful and confident of his victory. His name is Goliath of Gath.
On the other side was a lad, untested in professional warfare, inexperienced in the intricacies of battle, fair in complexion and delicately built. He had never been to the battle front in his life because he had been taking his father’s sheep for grazing. Though ready to take up the challenge of the boastful opponent, he could not use the armour provided by the commander-in-chief of his own army, King Saul. He went into the combat only in his shepherd’s clothing with a sling and five smooth stones. With just one shot, the enemy fell. His name is David.
DCLM Daily Manna 19 December 2018 Devotional – The Battle Is The Lord’s
David’s victory came through his belief and confession. “The battle is the LORD’S”. His trust in God is unequalled. Like David, when accosted by an enemy, a situation or a challenge that seems to dwarf us, we should quickly realise and confess that we have the One who has never lost a battle. He is the Lord of hosts.
Whatever we see in the physical appearance and whatever we hear from or about our opponent must not be allowed to make us doubt the power of our mighty God or to shake our faith in Him. No doubt, there could be suggestions to use other strange and untried instruments of warfare. A Christian should resolutely say, “on Christ the solid Rock I stand”. And God will make us to be more than conquerors.
Thought For The Day: Those who put God in the forefront of their warfare will never know defeat.
