1Samuel 17:50 “So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David.”

In critical battles of life, you must learn and master the art of dealing with the enemy offensively. You must know the weapons to muster to deal with the enemy without allowing him into your zone.

You must know how to deal with the enemy without getting into fellowship with him.

How do I mean? If you study the scenario of how the combat between David and Goliath went you’ll know Goliath has lost from the beginning. Goliath came against David with close combat weapons:

1Samuel 17:45 “…Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield…”

The sword, spear and shield are for close combats. The spear if thrown can only go a few meters unlike the sling and stone that can travel several meters. You don’t necessarily need to get into the zone of the enemy to fight and defeat him. David was smart enough to realize this.

As a believer you must use your long range weapons, don’t mix up with the enemy. Don’t be unequally yoked with them. Don’t give the devil a space within your territory, you can always attack from afar.

David admonished:

Psalms 1:1 “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful”

He was invariably saying we don’t need to enter into close union with the enemy but rather:

Psalms 107:20 “He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.”

Send the word of God; use it against the enemy by slinging it and declaring it with your mouth. Release the word in prayer from your room and on your knees. Release it in praise and worship.

Goliath came with strictly defensive weapons, David came with offensive. You don’t need to get too close to launch an attack, just send the word!
