We all are familiar with the story of David and Goliath. When David faced the Philistine's champion, he was only in his teens. Goliath towered over all on the battlefield at 10 feet tall. As Goliath hurled curses and insults at David ( 1 Samuel 17:43-44), imagine how loud and intimidating the voice of a 10 foot giant must have sounded in the valley.
What did David do? Let's read 1 Samuel 17:45-47...
45 David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. 46 This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head. This very day I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds and the wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel. 47 All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.”
Instead of listening to the taunts of his enemy, David made a choice. He did not repeat the words of Goliath in his heart allowing them to take root, but warred against Goliath by speaking the opposite. David spoke not in fear, but with boldness and confidence in God Almighty. His very words moved the heart of God into action on his behalf.
Whatever Goliath stands before you, remember death and life are in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18:21). Don't speak what you hear the enemy slinging at you, but speak what you hear God speaking over you. Counteract words of fear, rejection, disease, lack, and chaos with the Word of God.
David fought words with words before he ever picked up his slingshot.
If you want your Goliath to fall, you must do your part. Speak life to your situation and death over the plans of your Goliath.
