I Samuel 17:45-46

Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.


One of the most familiar Sunday school stories in the whole of Scripture is David and Goliath. We could recite the story by heart of how little David slayed the mighty Goliath. The reality of the story is no less real because it is a Sunday School lesson. The story happened, and a little shepherd boy fighting in the Name of the Lord defeated a giant of a warrior with a stone and a sling.


Imagine being there in the lineup of Israelite soldiers facing the Philistine army across the ravine, a giant soldier standing in the middle. You watch as a little ruddy, stooped shouldered boy (which would turn into a handsome man, as Scripture says), prance out onto the field about 50 yards from the Philistine warrior. Brother Branham said he might have had 14 inch long fingers and a 10 foot long sword. The little boy yells out something barely audible from the distance, “I come to thee in the name of the Lord of Hosts, the God of the armies of Israel.”


Once revelation strikes, there is no giant that can overtake you. David knew this truth. David knew that if the Lord was with him, no Philistine that defied him could stand against the Lord’s ability to work a miracle. David fought in the name of the Lord, that was His revelation. A little David could defeat a giant with impossible odds, simply because he came in faith, standing upon the revelation of the Word.


Don’t let yourself be defeated by the giants in yourself. Face the giants in the name of the Lord. Run out on your field of battle, regardless of who discourages you, and fight with all your might. Go in the name of the Lord today; He promised to stand with you.


Stand upon your revelation of the truth.


65-1126 - “Works Is Faith Expressed”

And a little David standing there with a little piece of leather, goatskin or sheepskin, with two pieces of string tied to it. But it was revealed to him! Revelation struck him! Amen! He said, "The God that took me out of the paws of the bear, that took me out of the paws of the lion, how much more will He deliver that uncircumcised Philistine in my hand!" His brothers, way more able to do it. Saul, head and shoulders above his army. But, you see, it wasn't revealed to them. Amen. There it is: they believed it could be done, they believed that God could do it, but it wasn't revealed to them; but it was revealed to David. So there's the difference, right there. If it's absolutely revealed to you that God is going to heal you, you're—you're going to get it. You're going to get it. I don't care what's wrong with you, what the odds, it may be worse than David and Goliath. But if it's revealed to you…
