“. . . but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.”
After David was anointed in 1 Samuel 16:13, he was supernaturally lifted and promoted in the valley of Ella where Saul and his army were fighting the Philistines and Goliath was troubling them. The Israelite army could not fight Goliath despite all the armour they had. Goliath became a threat to their lives. They heard his voice first thing in the morning and the last thing in the night threatening them. Due to this a stronghold was built into them and they became fearful. But David, who has had an encounter with God, came to the scene and everything changed dramatically.
When you know this God you will be strong and do exploits. Some are interested in knowing politicians. Some are interested in knowing some big names but I make bold to tell you that they will disappoint you; because man is still man. The best of man is vanity because they have limitations even when they are sincere. But I have come to tell you about the God that will never disappoint you.
David developed a strong relationship with God and that gave him the boldness to bring down Goliath. Saul said to him my son you cannot fight the giant because you are not a warrior. David said I may not have fought in the front line before but let me give you a little bit of my resume. I was taking care of my father’s sheep and one day a lion came and took one, I went after it. I took the lamb from it and tore it. Another day a bear came and took one of the sheep, I went after it, took the lamb from him and tore it. Listen to his next statement; he didn’t say he did it by his expertise but he said the same God that delivered me out of the paws and the jaws of the bear and the lion shall deliver me out of the hand of the giant. Your Goliath will fall.
My beloved, the time for you to build a vital and robust relationship with God is now because the days are evil. You need a rock you can run to when your heart is overwhelmed. You will certainly encounter challenges that will overwhelm your heart, I can assure you. They will come but you will not go down with it when you develop a strong relationship with God. You have been licensed to succeed in life because everything has been sealed and packaged. Don’t expect anything less than good. You will not die of sickness. You will not die of accident. You will not die of poverty. For too long you have been on the floor but you are coming back to your throne now in Jesus name.
