HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div
Are you coming up against your giants in someone else’s armour?
Are you trying to solve life’s problems and battling the enemy the way someone else advises or the way someone else handled a similar issue, or are you going to God and putting on the only armour you need; the full armour of God?
The Full Armour of God
David tried on the armour Saul gave him and found it didn’t fit. He knew he could not battle his enemy in armour not meant for him.
God doesn’t want us doing things the way other people have. Sure, we should seek godly counsel but at the end of the day, we have to be sure it is what God wants for us.
We need to seek Him in His Word and in prayer.
Everything must be measured up against the Word of God.
1 Thessalonians 5:21:
Facing your Goliaths mean that, like David, you have to give the battle to the Lord. Let the Lord go before you into battle!
This is not a physical battle but a spiritual one, and your spiritual authority doesn’t lie in your own power or someone else’s solutions. It is found in God alone!
Are you going up against your giants in someone else’s armour?
David did not want to wear Saul’s armour, not only because it was too large but because it was untested in the battle for him. Put on the full armour of God, not the armour of man!
Test everything! Don’t assume because something works for someone else that it will work for you!
Don’t try facing your Goliath in someone else’s armour! Let the Lord lead you!
