1 Samuel 17:16 – “For forty days the Philistine came forward every morning and evening and took his stand.”
Newsflash: The enemy never relents in his stand against you. In turn, you must never relent in your STAND against him. Daily, you must do spiritual warfare!
But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. (Psalms 1:2 KJV)
1 Samuel 17:4-7 “A champion named Goliath, who was from Gath, came out of the Philistine camp. His height was six cubits and a span. He had a bronze helmet on his head and wore a coat of scale armor of bronze weighing five thousand shekels; on his legs he wore bronze greaves, and a bronze javelin was slung on his back. His spear shaft was like a weaver’s rod, and its iron point weighed six hundred shekels. His shield bearer went ahead of him.”
Ephesians 6:11-18 “ Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to STAND against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[c] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. STAND therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; PRAYING ALWAYS with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit,
What are you standing on today? Bad doctor’s report? Upcoming court date? Fear? Worry? Condemnation? If you are, that is exactly what the enemy wants you to do, just like Goliath did. He wore all of this outlandish stuff to frighten the people by their 20/20 vision, inhibiting them from seeing in the spirit what God had said regarding their trial.
God has given us everything that we need to Stand. The stand that we take is in another realm. He has given us the authority to trample on serpents, scorpions and over all the power of the enemy. Yes we have to take a stand in natural circumstances but the stand that we take in the spirit realm makes the natural realm obey. Stand on by His stripes you are healed. Stand on God has not given me a spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind. Stand on there is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus!
Stand every morning and every evening.
