TOPIC: Dare To Be A Champion (Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministries Friday, 1 June 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Samuel 17:36-37
“Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.” – Psalms 27:14
The best of the army of Israel gathered at the valley of Elah and set battle array against the Philistines. The battle took another twist this time around when a “champion” from the Philistines side came out and gave conditions for winning. It was the Philistine that dictated the pace; he gave the conditions and instructions for the battle. Why? The Bible says they had a “Champion” called Goliath. In spite of the fact that all the best of Israel’s army gathered at the battle ground including Saul the king, who was taller than all of his people, none of them could challenge Goliath to a duel.
The threat of Goliath went on for forty days and forty nights before David appeared on the scene. Suddenly, Saul had someone that was ready to help him redeem his eroded image. What qualified David to become the champion that defeated the enemies? 1 Samuel 16:18 says, “…behold I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite that is cunning in playing, a mightier valiant man, a man of war, prudent in matters and lowly person, and the Lord is with him.” God was with David.
The Israelites’ soldiers gathered to battle but they lacked the courage and confidence for battle. They lacked all that was needed to be champions. They did not have the courage to step out to face Goliath. The courage those old soldiers lacked, together with the mockery Goliath made of the armies of Israel, stirred up holy anger in David who volunteered to challenge Goliath.
Beloved, who is beating the drums of war in your life? Who is in charge or controlling your life’s problems? Who is making mockery of your prayers? Philippians 2:10 says, “That at the name of Jesus, every knee should bow, of things in heaven and things in earth, and things under the earth.” All you need to do is to be bold and confident like David. Add courage to your faith and confront that Goliath supervising problems and afflictions in your life. You have the weapon to confront your Goliath and the weapon is the name of Jesus. Acknowledge Jesus as the Commander-in-Chief of your battle. Have unwavering faith in Him and just as God was with David, He will also be with you. He will declare you not only a winner but also a champion.
Don’t be intimidated by counterfeit lions, be bold, courageous and stand out for Jesus.
Power to be a champion for Christ shall come upon you, and you shall not remain the same.
1. Power intimidating me in my dream, die, in the name of Jesus.

3. Satanic champion of my father’s house, receive the stone of my prayer, die, in the name of Jesus.

7. O Lord, let my generation celebrate me like David, in the name of Jesus.
