Summary: HOW TO DEAL WITH LIFE PROBLEMS OVERCOME THEM
INTRO –GOD-LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST –COMFORTER AND KEEPER HOLY SPIRIT
VERY BRIEFLY THIS MORNING/AFTERNOON I WOULD LIKE TO INVITE YOUR ATTENTION
TO THE 1ST SAMUEL 17 CHP VERSES 32-40
1 Samuel 17:32-40 (NKJV)
32 Then David said to Saul, "Let no man's heart fail because of him; your servant will go and fight with this Philistine."
33 And Saul said to David, "You are not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him; for you are a youth, and he a man of war from his youth."
34 But David said to Saul, "Your servant used to keep his father's sheep, and when a lion or a bear came and took a lamb out of the flock,
35 I went out after it and struck it, and delivered the lamb from its mouth; and when it arose against me, I caught it by its beard, and struck and killed it.
36 Your servant has killed both lion and bear; and this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, seeing he has defied the armies of the living God."
37 Moreover David said, "The LORD, who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine." And Saul said to David, "Go, and the LORD be with you!"
38 So Saul clothed David with his armor, and he put a bronze helmet on his head; he also clothed him with a coat of mail.
39 David fastened his sword to his armor and tried to walk, for he had not tested them. And David said to Saul, "I cannot walk with these, for I have not tested them." So David took them off.
40 Then he took his staff in his hand; and he chose for himself five smooth stones from the brook, and put them in a shepherd's bag, in a pouch which he had, and his sling was in his hand. And he drew near to the Philistine.
(THE WORD OF GOD FOR THE PEOPLE OF) GOD
WITH THE HELP OF THE LORD THE GUIDANCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND THE PRAYERS OF THE SAINTS
I WANT TO REASON WITH YOU ON THE THOUGHT
(DEALING WITH GAINT TROUBLE 2017
MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS
IT IS THROUGH THE LENES OF OBSERVATION
THAT I HAVE DISCOVERED THAT THERE ARE STILL SOME GIANTS LIVING IN THE YEAR OF 2017
AND THESE GIANTS CAN HAVE A VARIETY OF NAMES –BUT IF YOU WILL ALLOW ME TO NAME A FEW
THE GIANT NAME COULD BE BACK BITING ,GOSSIP OR SLANDER
THE NAME COULD EVEN BE –SUNDAY MORNING STANDOUT /BUT WEDNESDAY NIGHT BIBLE CLASS OR CHRISTIAN EDUCATION DROP OUT
AND IT`S IMPORTANT THAT WE UNDERSTAND
THAT WHEN WE ALLOW THESES GIANTS TO MANIFEST THEMSELVES IN OUR LIVES
THEY HINDER OUR TESTIMONY OF BEING A CHRISTIAN
BUT I`VE ALSO DISCOVERED THAT GOD LEAVES ON THE RECORD SOME BIBICAL INSTRUCTION AS TO HOW TO DEAL WITH GIANT TROUBLE IN 2017
WELL THE TEXT BEFORE US IS CENTERED AROUND
THE YOUNGEST SON OF A MAN FROM BETHELEHEM JUDEA NAME JESSIE
OUR BACK DROP IS OUT ON THE BATTLE FIELD BETWEEN TWO MOUNTIAN RIDGES
ON ONE MOUNTIAN RIDGE STOOD THE ARMY OF ISRAEL
AND ON THE OTHER MOUNTIAN RIDGE STOOD THE ARMY OF THE PHILISTINES
AND EVERY DAY THERE WOULD BE A GIANT NAME GOLIATH
WHO WOULD PROCLAIM WORDS OF IMTIMADATION AGAINST THE ARMY OF ISRAEL
AND THE RECORD REVEALS THAT HE DID THIS FOR 40 DAYS
BUT ON THE FORIETH DAY –DAVID WHO WAS TENDING TO HIS FATHER SHEEPS WAS SUMMON BY HIS FATHER JESSIE
JESSIE TOLD DAVID I WANT YOU TO TAKE PROVISION TO YOUR 3 ELDEST BROTHERS WHO ARE ENLISTED IN THE ISRAEL ARMY
BUT NOT ONLY DO I WANT YOU TO TAKE PROVISION BUT I WANT YOU TO RECEIVE FROM YOUR BROTHERS THERE PLEDGE
THE WORD PLEDGE SIMPLY MEANS –A MESSAGE OR LETTER ARE EVEN A LOT OF HAIR
WHICH SIMPLY MEANS THAT ALL JESSIE WANTED TO KNOW WAS HIS 3 ELDEST SONS STILL ALIVE
BUT THAT’S NOT WHAT I WANT TO TALK ABOUT
BUT I WANT TO REASON WITH YOU ON THE THOUGHT HOW TO DEAL WITH GIANT TROUBLE 2017
VERY BRIEFLY I WANT TO LIFT UP 7 WORDS THAT WILL GIVE US A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF HOW TO DEAL WITH GIANT TROUBLE 2017
