TOPIC: TRAINED FOR WAR

Read: Judges 3:1-4
MEMORISE: Blessed be the LORD my Rock, Who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle (Psalm 144:1).

EXPOSITION
This world is a battlefield where a quitter cannot win and winners never quit. Life is full of challenges along the way to fulfilment of one’s dream. Success in this life is not by chance. It is by choice through fighting your way through. That is why laziness, especially in warfare prayer, is not tolerated in the Kingdom of God (2 Cor. 12:7-10).

The proven truth that cannot be denied is that you have to trained for war spiritually, to occupy the space God has purposed for you in life. When David was all alone in the desert, keeping his father’s sheep, he faced some challenges of dangerous animals. To protect himself from the harmful animals, he got idea of locally made defensive weapons to fight with. Gradually, he developed courage to face those animals whenever they wanted to kill his father’s sheep, not knowing that God was training him for the greater battle ahead of him. When Saul and David’s three elder brothers were running away from Goliath, he came out with the courage he had developed in the desert to challenge to challenger (1 Sam. 17:32-47).

Eventually, David killed Goliath and was qualified to become the next king in Israel. The problem you solve in life determines your next level of promotion in the land of the living. He who runs away from problem cannot become a champion.

When David won the battle against Goliath, he then realised that the bitter experiences he faced in the desert were God’s way of training his hand for war and his hand for war and his fingers for battle (2 Sam. 22:35; Psa. 18:34; 144:1). When the Israelites reached the land of promise, God allowed them to face some real battles against their enemies, to train their little ones for they did not have prior experience of war (Jdg. 3:1-4).

There is no short cut to becoming a champion in life. You have to solve problems, fight battles in the spiritual realm, and win. Are you ready to face the challenges in your family, workplace, society, etc. to become the next champion? Do not be a quitter on the battlefield of fervent prayer.

PRAYER POINTS
1. Lord, help me to be winner, not a victim, in the battle of life.
2. Father, I ask for courage like David to face the challenges of life and win for Your own glory.
3. Lord, raise more people like David among our church leaders, who will stand against the kingdom of the devil without fear.

EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: Leviticus 22:23 – 24:9; Mark 3:23 – 4:9
