"But when the Philistines heard that they had anointed David king over Israel, all the Philistines came up to seek David; and David heard of it, and went down to the hold."(11 Samuel 5:17)
God's touch made David a successful warrior because he had been anointed to win!! To anoint means to "rub in", God has touched you with His Divine Power!! Oh, satan's going to check your anointing for you to see if you know it's power. If you do not know its power, then how can you possiblely use it to bring Glory to God and Blessing to God's people. "For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries."(1 Corinthians 16:9) If you really think that you're not going to be tried and tested once you get God's Anointing on your life, you are sadly mistaken. Satan only fights those that have the potential to crush his kingdom of darkness, those that are a threat to him and his hypocritical phonies. People are only jealous of you when you have something they don't have nor will they ever have because their hearts are not in submission to God. To them it's just a game, a competition, something to make them look and feel special. Are you anointed for God and by God? Do you have any faith that can be tried or is church just something on the "good list" that you do? If you have the Faith of God in your heart and the Anointing of God on you, our enemy is coming to see what you've got, "because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world."(1John 4:4b) We must always remember that God is Greater than any enemy we could ever have at any time in our life. "Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil."(Matthew 4:1) Let him come, but he will drag away naked and empty handed-"Devil, You're not getting anything here!" "And the God of peace shall bruise satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen."(Romans 16:20). Devil, you've lost, it's over and you have LOST!! "And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded."(Acts 19:15-16) Satan came but he couldn't stay, he had to go in the Name of Jesus!! "The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways."(Deuteronomy 28:7). If we are to remain successful in the Kingdom of God we must go to bed with the blood of our enemy on our sword each night. God has special plans for those that serve Him faithfully. Your day will come!!!!
