SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 19
Scripture: 1 Samuel 18:7-16
We need to be honest enough to state that as the Davids of God begin to emerge in the church world, there will be resistance. There will be criticisms, there will be accusation, there will be demonic assaults. Just as Saul sought David’s life, so the enemy hates warrior shepherds. David stood in the true shepherding anointing. He brought death to the enemy, deliverance to Israel, blessing to the people and started dodging spears as a reward. Any time we stand up for the true, those whose position is threatened become Saul-like spear chuckers. There is no way to end the passivity in the pastorate without facing the spear-chucking that comes from the Sauls. It is inevitable and we might as well prepare for it. If we are going to stand for the real, then we will face the resistance that comes from those who are threatened by our message and anointing. Let God arise and His enemies be scattered!
