Daily God Walk for Tuesday, February 5, 2013

When the men were returning home after David had killed the Philistine, the women came out from all the towns of Israel to meet King Saul with singing and dancing, with joyful songs and with tambourines and lutes. – 1 Samuel 18:6

The men of Israel had been at war with the Philistines and were returning home the victors. David had slain Goliath and the army of Israel had pursued the fleeing Philistines destroying them along the way.
The army of Israel was coming home victorious. As they entered the city the people were jubilant. Dancing and singing broke out in the streets. There was joy over the victory.
It is amazing how that just a short time earlier the army coward behind trees and rocks as the giant, Goliath, challenged them to battle, yet now these same men were proudly marching home in victory. What had happened to change them? One young man dared to do battle in the name of the Lord. David didn’t see a giant, he only saw an unbelieving Philistine that was threatening the army of the living God – he was challenging God himself.
The only way we are going to be victorious over the giants that challenge our faith is to stand up against them in the name of the Lord and prove the validity of what we believe. Declare to the enemies of your soul, “I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty,” (1 Samuel 17:45). Then, when God gives the victory, there is great joy. You have joy in victory and those around you have great joy because of the victory that was released by your act of faith. It is time for joyous singing and dancing.

Prayer: Lord, help me to see that challenges to my faith are actually challenges to you and you will not fail. Thank you for the joy of victory. In Jesus name, amen.
