And we need to respond like David.
You see, David did something remarkable. He was aggressive. He struck the first blow (1 Samuel 17:48-49). He didn't wait for Goliath to wound him.
And we shouldn't wait for Satan to attack either.
"Prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ." 1 Peter 1:13, NASB
1. Prepare our minds for action.
Let's feed our faith before the battle (Colossians 3:16).
2. Keep Sober. Let's be alert/aware of Satan's tricks and influences (1 Peter 5:8).
3. Fix our hope on Jesus. Let's depend on Christ's strength (Philippians 4:13) and take up our shield of faith (Ephesians 6:16).
Like David, we can be aggressive in defeating our giants because we are depending on God's Name and strength, not our own (1 Samuel 17:45-47).
