Topic: How To Boost Your Courage (part 2) [Friday July 7, 2017]
Your words are the strength of your life. If you cannot speak then you will remain discouraged and stranded. Never be tired of charging yourself up with the word of God. In the midst of the hottest battle, keep speaking. For your information, the greatest battles of life are first won with words before they are won in the physical. When David stepped out to face Goliath, he first engaged him in a battle of words. Goliath said to David, “I will give your flesh to the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field.” David did not keep quiet, he replied immediately and said, “You come to me with a sword, and with a spear, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts.
This day will the Lord deliver you into my hand and I will kill you, and take your head from you; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines to the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth” (1 Sam 17:44-47). If you check those scriptures you will discover that David spoke much more than Goliath and he also spoke the last word. After that, he ran towards the giant and killed him. So, when satan begins to speak negative words to you, he tells you, “You can never make it again”, reply him immediately with words of faith.
As you make your boast in the Lord with strong declarations, not only are you strengthened to move forward, the enemy is driven back and God arises to confirm what you say.
Mediate on these: Numbers 14:28, Isaiah 43;26.
