1Sa 17:24 And when they saw the man, all the men of Israel ran from him, and
1Sa 17:26 And David spoke to the men who were standing with him, saying, What shall be done to the man who strikes this Philistine, and turns aside reproach from Israel? For who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should reproach the armies of the living God?
1Sa 17:34 And David said to Saul, Your servant has been one shepherding among sheep for his father. And the lion came, and the bear, and took away a sheep out of the flock.
1Sa 17:35 And I went out after him and struck him, and delivered out of his mouth. And he rose against me, and I took hold of his beard and struck him, and killed him.
1Sa 17:36 Your servant has struck both the lion and the bear, and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, for he has reproached the armies of the living God.
1Sa 17:37 And David said, Jehovah, who has delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, He shall deliver me from the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said to David, Go, and Jehovah be with you.
1Sa 17:44 And the Philistine said to David, Come to me, and I will give your flesh to the birds of the heavens and to the beasts of the field.
1Sa 17:45 And David said to the Philistine, You are coming to me with sword, and with spear, and with javelin. But I am coming to you in the name of Jehovah of Hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, which you have reproached.
1Sa 17:46 This day Jehovah shall shut you up into my hand, and I shall strike you, and take off your head from you and give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds of the heavens and to the living things of the earth this day. And all the earth shall know that there is a God for Israel.
1Sa 17:47 And all this company shall know that Jehovah does not save by sword and by spear, but that the battle belongs to Jehovah, and He has given you into our hand.
1Sa 17:48 And it happened, when the Philistine rising up and going and drawing near to meet David, David hurried and ran toward the ranks to meet the Philistine.
1Sa 17:49 And David put his hand into the pouch and took a stone from there. And he slung it and struck the Philistine in his forehead. And the stone sank into his forehead, and he fell on his face to the earth.
1Sa 17:50 And David was stronger than the Philistine with the sling and with the stone. And he struck the Philistine and caused him to die. And there was no sword in David’s hand.
1Sa 17:51 And David ran and stood by the Philistine, and took his sword; and he drew it out of its sheath and caused him to die. And he cut off his head with it. And the Philistines saw that their warrior was dead, and they fled.
A sign of God’s leader is one that when a nation cowers in complacency, passivity, fear, and apathy, God will find him or her ready to fulfill His purposes.
He will use His leader to deliver the nation and draw it back to Him.
It’s a tragedy that God can only find a few when the need arises.
There should be many in the body of Christ, but alas, it’s not the case.
Yet, God will not be short circuited.
He always reserves to Himself, those few, and works through them a mighty work.
God’s leader will allow God to perfect him.
He will repent of everything that God tells him to, and make himself ready for the great task at hand.
He will place himself in a place that through this repentance, can get the victory and breakthrough in everything, and thus make himself available to be God’s man or woman of the hour.
He will not wait for others to respond, for they may all be stuck in the apathy and complacency of Face book and technological entertainment.
Others are worshiping America’s golden calf, Comfort!
A mark of God’s leader is one who gets sick and tired of the devil mocking the nation, God, and the righteous ways of life, that he is stirred to do what must be done for the glory of God.
He realizes that if it’s only him, he will step out to help deliver the country, in Jesus Name.
I think that many in the body of Christ resist the move of the Spirit.
Pastors spend much time and resources ministering to them.
Lord, always send me to those who want the move of the Spirit.
God will turn to the young generation to carry out His work, if us the older one remain as spiritual fuddie duddies stuck behind the walls of our Christian ghettos.
I will not be left behind. I will be a father to this new generation.
God is looking for the nameless and faceless Davids who will deliver America from the demonic Goliaths who mock it. Where are they?
“The best answer we have to America’s ills can only be found in God.
And the best answer within the realm of God is a revival and awakening back to Him, where men’s and women’s blind spiritual eyes can see and they can pull out of the mess which the devil deceived them into.
And God is ready to spark revivals through nameless and faceless Christians all around the world, if they are ready to do anything and everything for Him.
The world is not against God, they are against religion.
Christians think that it’s an us against them war but it’s not.
Everybody loves to see power and glory, whom God is the author of.
Everybody wants to have a good time, whom God is the author of.
Everybody wants to have some fun and laugh, whom God is the author of.
Religion has made God into an old prune. He is quite the opposite.
Pure love, whom God is, can only dwell in joy, happiness and good times.
Isn’t that what people are looking for?
God uses the normal Joe and Jane equally to a Reinhart Bonkhe or a Billy Graham.
The church not only focus on them, but say, God send me, here am I.’

God uses an atheist as a prophet to the church. Check out the video.
