“David fastened his sword to his armor and tried to walk, for he had not tested them. And David said to Saul, “I cannot walk with these, for I have not tested them. ” So David took them off.” I Samuel 17:39 NKJV
Saul gave David his armour to use, but David could not use Saul’s armour. He could not go in Saul’s armour; he had not tested them. He had to use his own armour, his shepherd ‘s staff and sling. And he marched on to victory.
Whatever experience you encounter in life today, serves as preparation or training for the future. God has given every believer His armour to resist evil (Eph 6:10-18).
You cannot resist the adversary with an armour or weapon that is strange to you. The name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous run into it and they are safe (Pr.18:10).
Thank you father, for giving me victory over every challenging issue. This is my season of total victory.
