1 Samuel 17:43-46
And the Philistine said unto David, Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. 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. 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. This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.Have you ever been backed up in a corner and had no choice but to come out fighting? I mean take your earrings off and put some vaseline on your face because you mother is going to beat you if you come home crying again! (This never happened to me, I only had two fights my whole life that's what other folks say) smile
Have you ever watched a lion laying low in the grass, watching and waiting for an opportunity to attack his prey? Well satan is doing the same thing to you, me and everybody on this board! If he is not watching you it's because he is not threatened by you! Are you tired of being tired? Are you tired of being intimidated and harrassed by the enemy? Well, I am and I am not going to take it anymore!
To hear the lion roar, press play
The LORD said to Gideon, "You have too many men for me to deliver Midian into their hands. In order that Israel may not boast against me that her own strength has saved her, announce now to the people, `Anyone who trembles with fear may turn back and leave Mount Gilead.'" So twenty-two thousand men left, while ten thousand remained. But the LORD said to Gideon, "There are still too many men. Take them down to the water, and I will sift them for you there. If I say, `This one shall go with you,' he shall go; but if I say, `This one shall not go with you,' he shall not go." So Gideon took the men down to the water. There the LORD told him, "Separate those who lap the water with their tongues like a dog from those who kneel down to drink." Three hundred men lapped with their hands to their mouths. All the rest got down on their knees to drink. The LORD said to Gideon, "With the three hundred men that lapped I will save you and give the Midianites into your hands. Let all the other men go, each to his own place.
"I am a short distance outside of the enemies camp resting by the stream as I lap my water with my hands, watching, looking all around me! I don't know about you but the enemy has backed me up in a corner! I am tired of crying! I am tired of complaining! I am tired of rolling over and playing dead hoping that the enemy will pass me by! I know that you are tired too but the question is what are you going to do about it? We are all going through and we have identified the problem, we have been studying God's word, we know who we are in Christ so what is the problem? It's time for some sifting to take place and I want to know who's going with me tonight? If you are coming, stop the crying, stop the complaining , blow your nose and start praising the Lord! Grab your boots, put on your war clothes, lay down that butter knife and grab your sword and your shield! We got a rumble to go to!
Do We Really Have The Victory? "I believe that we have the victory from: "our past trials, present trials and future trials; because the Bible says that we are more than conquerors thru Jesus Christ. So what I believe is that the fight is not really a fight for us to get the victory but for us to stay victorious."
So I say, for all of the saints that are going through, Psalm 34:7-9, says that the angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. Praise Him ! Praise Him! Praise Him!
