Don’t Leave the Giant in the Valley

If David would have gone home just to pray about Goliath it would have left the giant in the valley. The problem with giants is they don’t stay in valleys. Had David ValleyStreamClouds.jpegnot confronted and contradicted Goliath, he would have marched up the mountain and right into Jerusalem to capture Zion. The giants of this hour are after the defeat of “Zion”, i.e., determined to take out every practice and symbol of our Lord in this nation. Joel 2:17, Msg — “Between Sanctuary entrance and altar, let the priests, God’s servants, weep tears of repentance. Let them intercede: “Have mercy, God, on your people! Don’t abandon your heritage to contempt. Don’t let the pagans take over and rule them and sneer, ‘And so where is this God of theirs?’”


Contradicting the Storm

The disciples confronted the storm on the lake but Jesus contradicted it with peace. wavesWhen Jesus said to His disciples that He had been given all authority in heaven and on earth and then commissioned them to disciple nations, that was the announcement that believers had now become the embodiment of the Kingdom like He was. We have the same authority and power to contradict darkness. Deut.28:7, Amp — “The Lord will cause the enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before you; they will come out against you one way, but flee before you seven ways.”
