A Sling And A Stone!



Topic: A Sling And A Stone!

 
Text: 1 Samuel 17 vs 50
 
Confessions: 
 
My God is a man of war and  a sling and a stone are more than enough for Him to defeat every hunter of my soul in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
 
Exhortation: 
 
There are some scriptures that we need to carry around like an only child. 1 Samuel 17 vs 50 is one such scriptures : "So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David". Does this strike a chord in you? A sling and a stone! Goliath was a mighty war General. He was a warrior from his youth. His size was towering and fear-instilling. His armoury was impregnable and His threats chilling. To worsen things for the armies of Israel: he challenged them thus: .....I defy the armies of Israel this day; give me a man that we might fight together!"( I Samuel 17:10
 
Most difficulties of life are like Goliath: fearful and overwhelming. It may be an unemployment situation; apparent barrenness; insulting poverty; stubborn sickness; unrepentant enemies; marriage fever; career migraine or any hurting circumstance. Like Goliath, they may appear insurmountable and help may be slow in coming or not even coming at all. The armies of Israel were not only disturbed, they were perturbed. A super- warrior was challenging them to battle and they could not raise a voice, they could not lift a finger! You will never be cornered by any cruel circumstance in Jesus' name. 
 
While Goliath was barking, God was planning. So, that situation you think is not offering you hope is just like the barking of Goliath: your God is busy planning wonders against it. At a time Israel was down, God brought out a David to help His people. David was tender but bold. He challenged Goliath. At first, Goliath thought that he was seeing a dull vision and dismissed David with a wave of his hand. But he was wrong! David knew the game: that the name of the Lord was the only weapon he needed and he held on to it: "Then said David to the Philistine, thou cometh to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou has defied"( 1 Samuel 17:45). 
 
Beloved, whatever you do with the name of the Lord will determine what the enemy will do to you. If you are strongly holding on to it, the enemy will be strongly losing grip of his strength but if you are a weak and fidgety proclaimer of God's name, the enemy will waste no time in forming a stronghold. Today, no stronghold of the enemy will stand against you in Jesus' name. David went to battle with a sling and a stone and came home with the head of the enemy: that will be your testimony today in Jesus' name.  God does not need the size of your battle to give you clear victory: He only needs His size! This is what is demonstrated by the sling and the stone. Goliath suffered ridicule before he suffered death. Your enemies will suffer same in Jesus' name. 
 
What sling and stone do you need to trounce your contender? A sling of praise? A stone of prayers? A sling of faith? A stone of courage? God is able to use the weakest weapon to destroy any monster. The victory does not come from the weapon, it comes from God. So, brace up and ask God to give you your own sling and stone to humiliate the boaster around you. He has done it before and He will do it again in Jesus' name. Amen. Shalom.
