    UNLIKELY WARRIORS RUN TO THE BATTLE

    You are the Lord’s chosen warriors.  Though you have been hidden from view, you have been trained up as the champion warriors of the Lord of Hosts.  You have faced many battles in the past and learned to rely on the Lord for victory.  You have been taught how to war by following the strategies of the Lord Himself.  Though you may appear to be the most unlikely of warriors and rely not on conventional weapons, you are His champions.  You are armed with faith and truth; and dangerous because of your total trust and belief in your Lord God Whose leading you follow without hesitation or question. Now there comes a mighty threat of the enemy that causes even seasoned warriors of the Lord to cower down.  But you know no fear, champion warriors!  This is your time to arise and run to the battle armed of the Lord.  This is the day for which you are trained.  This is the threat for which you were fitted to take down.  Be not discouraged by doubts of even your brothers and sisters.  Be not dismayed by ridicule of the enemy.  You know whose you are and to whom the battle belongs.  Declare His word that you may take down the giant in the Name of the Lord!

    I Samuel 17:

    42 And when the Philistine looked about, and saw David, he disdained him: for he was but a youth, and ruddy, and of a fair countenance.

    43 And the Philistine said unto David, Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods.

    44 And the Philistine said to David, Come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field.

    45 Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.

    46 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.

    48 And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose, and came, and drew nigh to meet David, that David hastened, and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine.

    49 And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth.

    50 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David.

    51 Therefore David ran, and stood upon the Philistine, and took his sword, and drew it out of the sheath thereof, and slew him, and cut off his head therewith. And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled.
