Be aware: You have authority over every giant in your life!!!! By: Elrick Jones

The story of David and Goliath is one that everyone knows but what stood out to me the most was that David went into the midst of the battle to bring his brothers some food and also talked to them as if no war was going on around him. Nothing got David’s  attention more than the fact when Goliath opened his mouth to defile the armies of Israel and God.


Note this....Saul and all the other Israelites had the same opportunity to stand in their awareness of God and speak up and speak out but instead became dismayed and afraid. It was DAVID who knew that the hand of God was with him and covering him because God had shown hisself faithful to David in the past by protecting him from lions and bears while he was protecting his sheep. David speaks authority by saying "Who is This uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God". 


David had no intentions on doing battle but he also wasn't going to stand in face of the enemy with fear with a closed mouth. He was aware of God's presence in his life which never made him question the sling and stone he had for a weapon. David's focus wasn't on how to kill Goliath but instead on conquering him! 


Conquer the enemy every time and cut his head off just like David did Goliath. Be aware of God's presence that is always with you.
