“Goliath’s Sword” By Kirk Hunt
Therefore David ran and stood over the Philistine, took his sword and drew it out of its sheath and killed him, and cut off his head with it. And when the Philistines saw that their champion was dead, they fled.
I Samuel 17:51 NKJV
David stood over the prostate Goliath. The giant from Gath had been so contemptuous of David that he hadn’t bothered to draw his sword. David did not hesitate to use God’s provision against his enemy.
To David’s natural eyes, Goliath must have seemed the size of a tank, in size, arms and armor. To David’s spiritual eyes, the blasphemous Goliath was a walking dead man. Little did David realize that the giant’s sword would become his to use for the kingdom.
Goliath’s sword represents the tools and resources that God provides through your opposition. Like David, the giants in your life will not only fall, but their arms and armor will become yours to use for the Kingdom. God will make your enemies fund and equip you.
David used Goliath’s sword to finish off Goliath. David carried Goliath’s sword during his fugitive mercenary years. In my mind’s eye, I can see it hanging as a trophy, or ready for use, in David’s royal audience chamber.
Jehovah-Jireh is the God who provides. At times He sends angles with provision. Other times He sends faithful men and women to sustain you. The rest of the time, He makes your opposition provide for your needs and wants.
Think: God will provide the tools and resources I need to complete my calling.
Pray: “Lord, help me recognize Your provision, no matter who brings it.”
