Scripture Reading: 1 Samuel 17: 1-53


This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. 47. And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD'S, and he will give you into our hands.” (1 Samuel 17: 46-47)

Our Focal Scripture captures that moment when David announced that God would deliver Goliath into his hands. David declared that he would smite Goliath and cut off his head. He declared that by the victory he would achieve, the entire assembly of men in the battle field would know that there is a God who does not need swords or spears. David made declarations about what his God would do. He made confessions about his God.

Friend, instead of speaking about how big your challenges are, speak about how big your God is. Speak of the power and might of your God. Speak of that God who is able to solve every challenge that ever shows up on earth. Speak of that God who has capacity to silence the power of darkness. Speak of that God with whom there is no impossibility. Speak of that God who is able to heal every disease and crush every opposition.

David did not only speak of the greatness of his God. He also spoke of how he would take Goliath’s head from him. David promised to cut off the head of Goliath, and he eventually did. As you face the challenges of the day, do well to announce to your challenges that will conquer them in full. Call forth the results that will soon be your portion. Call forth the next level you will soon step into. Call forth your victory before it happens.

David did not use his words to magnify Goliath. He used his words to magnify his God and to speak of what he would accomplish with the help of God. Don’t use your words to give life to the devices of the enemy. The enemy may be doing much evil, but don’t be his advertiser. Don’t take up the assignment of broadcasting negativity. Don’t use your words to make the enemy famous. Don’t use your tongue carelessly.

Remember, David used his words to magnify his God and to speak forth his results. Use your words to magnify your God and call forth your results.


I speak to magnify my God; I call forth my results; I refuse to speak of the enemy, in Jesus’ name!
