“And David said to Saul, Let no man’s heart fail because of him; thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine”. 1 Samuel 17:32
Fear is common acronym for False Evidence Appearing Real (FEAR). It may be the fact but not the truth. The situation may be real but it is still not the truth. God wants us to live beyond fear and live a faith-filled life. That is what distinguished David from Saul. Saul was armed and surrounded by his army. Saul was also a covenant man but he didn’t know he was anointed. He was hiding from the enemy and for forty days, the enemy intimidated them. The first voice he heard in the morning was Goliath’s voice and in the night, it was Goliath’s and so a stronghold of fear had been built into Saul’s camp. Every time Goliath showed up, they hide. You will not hide from your opportunity in Jesus name. You will confront your confrontation. Despite despise Fear had gripped the army of God but thank God, there is a new breed. David appeared on the scene. He saw Goliath and asked: who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defile the army of Israel? You are circumcised because you are in covenant with God and you are dangerous because of the covenant. I declare that covenant will speak for you. Covenant will announce you and covenant will distinguish you. When Goliath was busy making noise about the battle, David showed up because he knew the battle has already been finalised and he knew the outcome as a covenant child of God.
David was so conscious of the covenant that he got the victory. I challenge you today to rise up in the full consciousness of your covenant with God ratified by the blood of Jesus. As you do, I declare over your life that your tears are wiped away, your struggles are ended and your mourning is over. Favour will speak on your behalf. God will exceed your expectations and desires. Your ground will produce. When you look back from where you are, you will see the hand of God upon your life, your mouth will testify in Jesus name.
