1Samuel 17:1 “Now the Philistines gathered together their armies to battle, and were gathered together at Shochoh, which belongeth to Judah, and pitched between Shochoh and Azekah, in Ephesdammim.”
The story of David and Goliath is said to be one of the most popular stories on earth. Both believers and unbelievers alike seem to know it. Many of us learnt it from Children Sunday School classes, but I’m believing God to open our eyes to deeper things as we meditate on this beautiful story over the next few days.
The first thing I want you to note is this; the enemy will always mobilize against us. It doesn’t matter who you are, there will always be a conspiracy or machination against us. Hear this:
Isaiah 54:15 “Behold, they shall surely gather together but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.”
The enemies will surely gather against you whether you like it or not. There is nothing like I don’t have an enemy, the devil is our number one arch-enemy. A believer without this understanding will be in deep trouble. Thank God for our victory in Christ.
Jesus Christ dispossessed the devil of all his powers but one thing the devil still uses is called wile or tricks:
Ephesians 6:11 “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
Ephesians 6:11 “Put on all the armor that God gives, so you can defend yourself against the devil’s tricks.”
The devil is sure powerless but not foolish and “trickless”. His tricks can sure wreck havocs when left unchecked.
When you take a critical look at Isaiah 54:15 as stated above, three things are very paramount:
1. There will always be a gathering together against a believer. They will surely gather. Nothing can prevent them from gathering. God Himself attest to this point.
2. The gang up is not engineered by God but carefully planned and orchestrated by the devil.
To be continued…
