1Samuel 17:44 “And the Philistine said to David, Come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field.”
1Samuel 17:45 “Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied”
Goliath spoke to David. He harassed and intimidated him with words. But I love the way the Bible records the response of David, it says, “Then said David to the Philistine…”
David waited for him to finish all his rumblings but unlike Saul and the other soldiers that ran, David spoke back! The reason why many believers lose the battles of life is not because the enemy is so powerful, skillful and articulate, it is because they lack what to say.
The moment you allow the enemy have the last say, you have lost. The battles of life are not won with physical weapons, muscles and skills, they are won and lost with words. Our battles in life are primarily spiritual. Hear this:
Ephesians 6:12 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
If we do not war or wrestle against flesh and blood, it means our battles are against spiritual unseen forces. Now, how does a man travel into the realm of the spirit to fight against these unseen forces? Jesus told us:
John 6:63 “It is the spirit that quickeneth the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”
In order word, the spoken words are spirits. So, each time you need to control what is going on in the spiritual atmosphere around you, you speak words!
But not just your words or wise words of your ancestors, here is what you say:
