This post is a partial redux of an older one. Whenever there are things in your life that are NOT God’s will for your life – anything that steals, kills and destroys – it is important to take a stand against that. Whatever steals, kills and destroys in your life from relationships to finances, is your enemy. Letting it continue becomes your fault when you have God’s Word, your mouth and faith to defeat it.
Faith speaks. Faith speaks the Word of God (Bible). Faith declares the end result; it does not talk about the circumstances that are negative. Faith talks about what the Bible says about the circumstance.
YOU are to overcome every tactic of the enemy in your life because God says you are an overcomer through Jesus and you have power over all the power of the enemy. God caused you to triumph in every situation. You can know the end result of every battle – VICTORY – because it is clearly outlined in the Word of God. You can always win.
Check out the previous post, The Real Reason for Christmas for some pointers.
Is there a disease trying to destroy your body? From reading the Bible in the area of healing you will learn that disease is NOT God’s will for you or your body. Faith will declare the end result – health, wholeness, healing. Faith will declare scriptures about healing. Faith says to that disease, “You have no right in my body. Jesus died for my healing and I accept that healing just like I accepted eternal life. I am healed.” The end result is “healed”.
Someone who talked to a huge problem is in the story of David and Goliath (1 Samuel 17:37-47). Many of us heard that story in Sunday school. It might come across as a fairy tale, but it is not. It really happened and David really defeated a giant (at least 9′ 7″ tall).
How? He declared his faith in God by speaking the end result before he ever stepped up to battle Goliath. 1 Samuel 17:31-
Here are seven declarations David spoke over the giant before he ever got up to the front line (author paraphrase):
- He starts with: Don’t be afraid: I will go and I will fight against the Philistine
- I killed both the lion and the bear, and this giant who has no covenant with Almighty God will go out the same way.
- I will go now, and take away the reproach of the people
- You come to me with a sword, a spear and a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel whom you have mocked. THIS day, the Lord will deliver you into my hands. You’re going down!
- I will kill you
- I will lop off your head
- I will give the rest of your body AND your army to the birds and wild beasts
- Everyone shall know that the Lord saves not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord’s, and He will give you into our hands.
- And David prevailed over the Philistine
In 9 verses, David declared and completed the destruction of Goliath before he ever went out and chopped his head off. Verse 10 is simply the result of the words of David’s mouth.
What giant are you facing in your life today? What have you been saying to your giant? It does not matter what you are facing, God has a plan and a way out of it. Your job is to find the scriptures that fit your need and begin to declare those scriptures over your enemy.
Everything from protection, safety, financial prosperity, healed relationships, a whole and sound body, and more are covered in God’s Word. Your job is to find those scriptures and study them until they become so real to you that nothing contrary to God’s promises to us can stay on or near you or your family!
Speak the Word! Find your ammunition in the Bible then talk your giant to defeat! You win!
You have His Word on it!
