…You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts….
–1 Samuel 17:45 NKJV
When David confronted the giant Goliath, he came with the assurance that Jehovah Tsebaoth (Lord of hosts) was with him. David knew with all certainty that the Lord of armies was with him. David knew that on that day he would lead the people of Israel to victory over this giant who defiled the name of God Most High.
What battle are you fighting today? Who or what is the “giant” trying to defeat you? If you feel like you are losing the battle, take courage my friend, because you are part of God’s army. You have a Captain who is the Lord of hosts who never loses a battle. Our Jehovah Tsebaoth is a Warrior. My friend, you have nothing to fear. Put on the armor of God. Wear it like the child of God you are. Whatever “giant” you are battling with can never stand against Jesus, our Lord of hosts. Take that giant down in the name of Jesus! Come face-to-face with each giant in the name of Jehovah Tsebaoth—for the victory will be yours. Hallelujah and amen.
- Lord of hosts, help me fight and overcome the giants in my life.
- Holy Spirit, empower me and fill me with the courage to do battle on my knees against the enemy of my soul.
