Scripture Reading: Psalm 20:6-9 “Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven with the saving strength of His right hand. Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will remember the name of the Lord our God. They have bowed down and fallen; but we have risen and stand upright. Save, Lord! May the King answer us when we call!”

Those who receive Christ were set apart before the foundation of the world to be holy and blameless before Him (Ephesians 1:4). God does not just separate one for holy use, but He also deposits His anointing to prepare them for service in the Body of Christ. You as a Christian have been exalted to kingship and priesthood to serve God (Revelations 5:9-10). Therefore, He will not ignore you when you call upon Him because He has sealed you with His precious anointing.

He promises to hear your cry and save you from those who rise against you with their chariots and horses. This is the same God whom David called upon when he was faced with the gigantic Goliath (1 Samuel 17:1-58.) The giant came against him with a sword, spear and javelin but David stood against him in the name of the Lord. He was only able to slay him with a stone and a sling because he had confidence in the Lord.

When the witches and other agents of the devil rise against you with their muthis and other tools, just remember the name of Lord and stand against them in it. Remember that the blacksmith who forms weapons against you was also created by your God, hence he shall not prosper in destroying you (Isaiah 54:16-17). It does not matter how well equipped that giant is because the name of the Lord is bigger than him and his weapons. The Lord is your invincible army and your enemies are not a match against Him. His power shall paralyse them and stop them on their tracks.

Look at what your enemies have been doing in your life and push them back in the name of the Lord. There is power in your tongue, so whatever you utter in Jesus name shall come to pass. Have confidence like David and push Goliath back in the name that is above all names. Victory is guaranteed; your enemies will be brought down while you rise and be brought upright by your God. The stones thrown against you by the devil are only temporary, they will not destroy you!

When Daniel was thrown into the lion’s den, his enemies concluded that it was done with his life. However, the power of the Lord paralysed the lions and they could not even open their mouths to devour him (Daniel 6:1-28.) That shall be the case when they have put you in the den hoping to turn you into the lions’ feast; your enemies’ lions are automatically rendered powerless. Even if they throw you into a burning furnace, kindle the fire seven times like they did to Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and expect you to burn into ashes, you shall not be consumed (Daniel 3:1-30.) You shall come out without the smell of the fire.

That sickness formed against you shall be paralysed when you stand against it in the name of Jesus! That giant problem facing you, threatening to kill you gets paralysed by the power of His name. Stand against that goliath of poverty in your family! The giant evil spirits that were sent against you so that you do not land a decent job gets paralysed in the name of Jesus! If you are tormented by tokoloshes and witches, all you have to do is call upon the name of the Lord like David and He shall save you!

Do not stop calling upon the name of the Lord for your victories and breakthroughs. He is the great God who triumphed on the cross and disarmed all the powers and principalities of the kingdom of darkness (Colossians 2:15.) This means all your victories are guaranteed in the name of Jesus. Like king David, the Lord will not allow goliath to destroy you because He has deposited His precious anointing upon you. Stand firm and slay that Goliath in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!
