BE THE MAN-8
1Samuel 17:8 “And he stood and cried unto the armies of Israel, and said unto them, Why are ye come out to set your battle in array? am not I a Philistine, and ye servants to Saul? choose you a man for you, and let him come down to me.”
Instead of getting intimidated by the accomplishments of Goliath, a man that will become a solution bearer for his generation must know how to use the power of past victories and testimonies. David was perhaps the best songwriter and poet in his days.
The book of Psalms is filled with praises to God but most especially past victories, successes and testimonies. David always has something to be grateful for. David was the man that thought us how to turn testimonies into dangerous and potent weapons. Hear him:
1Samuel 17:34 “And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father’s sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock:”
1Samuel 17:35 “And I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of his mouth: and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him.”
1Samuel 17:36 “Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God.”
1Samuel 17:37 “David said moreover, The LORD that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said unto David, Go and the LORD be with thee.”
How easily we forget the past deeds of God in our lives! Many believers forget all that God has ever done in their lives once a new challenge or Goliath shows up.
You must know that sharing testimonies of past victories you’ve enjoyed from God attracts the attention of heaven to you. It also gives you hope, boldness and disarms your enemy.
Lamentations 3:21 “This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope”
Testimonies are not mere words, they are weapons in the hands of a skillful soldier of Christ!
