Wear the Right Armor
1 Samuel 17:47
When David went out to face Goliath, everyone around him said, “David, you can’t do this!” But God put a sense of “knowing” within David that he would succeed in the name of the Lord. When King Saul decided to let David fight, he gave David his armor, but David said, “I cannot, because I am not used to this”
(see 1 Samuel 17:31-39). David knew he was to go in the name of the Lord with only his slingshot (see vv.40-50).
If you have battles to face in life, don’t let others tell you how to fight. God will personally direct you in the way you should go. His Word is your weapon; that is why it is a vital necessity to arm yourself with knowledge and to spend time in God’s presence before you have to face any giants.
God’s Plan Is Greater
The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus sets us free from the law of sin and death. We are free from the law of sin and death only to the degree that we follow the law of the Spirit. If we know what is right but insist on doing wrong, our actions may still lead us to miss out on the abundant life God has for us on earth.
Follow the law of the Spirit, and you will remain completely free from the law of sin and death. The Holy Spirit will lead you into holiness, into righteousness, and into the complete destiny that God has for your life. God’s will for you is greater that anything you can imagine for yourself. Be willing to obey God even when you don’t understand what He is doing with you.
