Many DISTRACTIONS that may come to HINDER us in PURSUING our DESTINY, such as PETTY ARGUMENTS, PROVING ourselves RIGHT, CRITICIZING others, looking for other’s FAULT, etc… Remember, we are not fighting against FLESH and BLOOD, we are FIGHTING against EVIL POWERS, PRINCIPALITIES and KINGDOMS.
We can easily CONQUER 10s of thousands if we have CONQUERED d’ REAL GIANT, Satan, the devil. I repeat, recognize the REAL GIANT and face it! Once you CONQUERED the REAL GIANT, you can easily CONQUER THOUSANDS or LEGIONS of evil spirits. Recognize the REAL GOLIATH! Because this GIANT is really the one WORTH FIGHTING FOR.
We don’t always need to FIGHT every BATTLE that comes on our WAY. I mean we don’t need to DEFEND ourselves when the fight is NOT WORTH FIGHTING FOR. We don’t need MAN’S APPROVAL for us to FULFILL our DESTINY. I mean, We don’t need to ARGUE against our brother or sister.
Notice, David did not ENTERTAIN his older Brother who was CRITICIZING him as DISHONEST and PROUD. In 1 Sam.17:30 using KJV, look what David did, “He [David] TURNED FROM HIM [Eliab] toward another…” For sure, the CRITICISM wasn’t TRUE, so David IGNORED Eliab. David recognized the REAL BATTLE, Eliab was just a DISTRACTION. So David TURNED FROM Eliab and CONFIRMED what was happening.
After DAVID CONQUERED the "GIANT" w/c commonly interpreted as DOUBT, WORRY, FEAR, INTIMIDATION, DOMINATION, BONDAGE, SLAVERY, POVERTY etc... LOOK!
This was their song: "Saul has killed his thousands, and David his ten thousands!" (1 Samuel 18:7)
Then Saul was JEALOUS!!! Another Battle on the GO!!!
Sometimes unlike David, we are easily got CAUGHT into the TRAP of the ENEMY. David heard the GREAT REWARD of DEFEATING Goliath. In the first place, David was ANOINTED as King of Israel. That’s his DESTINY, his CALLING, to be a king!
The GREAT REWARD is ready and waiting! Now, our GOAL should be CONCENTRATED in the PROMISED KINGDOM. The GATE is NARROW so we need to PERSEVERE and ENDURE like we are on a RACE! This is the CALLING that Satan wants to STOP, that’s why Satan is SUPPRESSING the REAL GOSPEL message of Jesus Christ. It is the GOSPEL of the KINGDOM of God.
Like David, through Christ, we have the KINGLY CALLING, we will REIGN with Jesus Christ, the KING of kings, in Jerusalem. As Christians, this is our CALLING! Let us OVERCOME the WORKS of the Devil! Such as, "CRAB MENTALITY", "SLAVE MENTALITY", "POVERTY MENTALITY", LOVE OF MONEY, lust, anger, jealousy, hatred! In short CAST OUT ALL kinds of NEGATIVE thoughts and feelings that causes NEGATIVE WORDS, ATTITUDE and EMOTIONS!
