March 10, 2021 Spirit Meat Devotional : Topic – ACTING ON COVENANT BASIS (2) – 1 Samuel 17: 25-26
David understood his covenant status and that was what gave him the edge over his brothers. Your own Goliath may not be a physical one like the one seen here, but it may be an ancestral or generational demon that has defeated all your ancestors. The spirit that cuts men down where you come from may be your own giant. You must have enough knowledge to tell that devil that, “You have conquered my fathers, but you have never faced somebody like me before; someone carrying a covenant of the blood of Jesus. My case will be different!”
You may be living among people where mediocrity is the order of the day, but you have to be different so that demon does not bring you under. It may be an incurable sickness that you have to face but tell the devil, “Even though doctors have said there is no cure, God has not said that. You may have taken out men like this, but you have never faced somebody that understands the covenant of healing like I do!”
Notice that David understood what he was talking about, he was not joking. He knew he was not just a natural person. He had the mark of circumcision and that was a mark of the covenant. Take note, if you don’t know what you carry, somebody will steal it from you. That was the difference between Esau and Jacob. Esau didn’t know what he was carrying and it was stolen from him.
PRAYER: I will not be a man with honour who is not aware of his status. Amen.
