Wield The Word

There we saw the giants (the descendants of Anak came from the giants); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.Ē ~ Numbers 13:33 (NKJV).


The Israelites were like grasshoppers in their own sight.

When problems come against us, most of the time, we cower underneath them. They look as if they are giants towering over us, too big for us to handle.

How did David defeat Goliath who was much taller, bigger and stronger than David, a mere shepherd boy?

David told Goliath, ďYou come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.Ē (I Samuel 17:45 NKJV).

Just like David, we have a secret weapon. We are not to do things in our lives in our own strength. Instead we are to do them in Godís.

We are soldiers in the army of Almighty God. We are to fight our battles on His authority, not on ours.

When we fight in our authority, we become overwhelmed, frustrated and ready to give up. On His authority, though, just like in Davidís case, it takes only one smooth stone to knock out the giants in our lives.

Our sword is not a physical sword, such as the one Goliath used. No, our sword is the Word of God.

The Word of God, the Bible, is inspired by God Himself. Ephesians 6 calls it our Sword of the Spirit. It is alive and powerful and stronger than any two-edged sword.

We have to speak the Word of God to our mountains--the problems in our lives. We canít complain about them. We canít worry about them. Neither of those cause the mountian to fall or the problems to cease. We have to wield the Word of God at our problems.

We need to find Scriptures concerning our problems, then pick out up to five of them. Then we have to speak those Scriptures to our problems.

The more we speak the Word to them, the more we chip away at the problems. As we chip away at them with the Word, the smaller they becomes until it is non-existent because the Word of God and our faith are growing bigger in our lives than the problems.

We donít need a sword made of metal. All we need is the Sword of the Spirit--the Word of God.
