DON’T USE WHAT YOU HAVE NOT PROVED-2
1Samuel 17:38 “And Saul armed David with his armour, and he put an helmet of brass upon his head; also he armed him with a coat of mail.”
1Samuel 17:39 “…And David said unto Saul, I cannot go with these; for I have not proved them. And David put them off him.”
1Thessalonians 5:21 “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.”
Prove makes you know the competence, strengths and characteristics of what you’ve been given.
Paul admonished us to prove all things, in order words perform an experiment and understand the workings of what you’ve been given before you begin to use it or boast about it.
You’ll discover that most things in life starts gradually from the proving state before perfection. A young child that want to run will have to start from trying to stand. He’ll stagger and fall until he finally gets a firm grip on the ground.
Once he can establish how to stand properly, he can move on to walking before finally running. If he doesn’t “prove” how to stand properly and begins to run, he’ll injure himself. He must do things in the proper sequence.
The problem of many Christians is that they want to jump some of those stages in life. You see someone who has never believed God for a cup of water trying to ask Him for an ocean!
Friend, don’t wait till you need something big before you call upon God, start by asking Him for those little things. Don’t wait till the doctor says you need a major surgery before you start believing and praying for healing, pray when you have those little headaches and pains as well.
The reason why the armies of Israel couldn’t face Goliath was that they’ve never faced a lion and bear before. You must recognize those things that God is using to train you per time.
Know your weapons, prove and perfect them before you’ll really need them. Don’t go to battle with the armour of Saul, you’re David!
