Continuing with Isaiah 41:10 it says, “…be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” We forget these truths when we are controlled by the devil’s lies. Just as Jesus did, we can sling God’s word-stone against the lie and it will be overthrown.
That is what David did with Goliath. Goliath was throwing out defiling words. In 1 Samuel 17:45 David said, “…You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God…whom you have defied.”
Verse 49 says that David took out a stone from his bag, “…he slung it and struck the Philistine in his forehead…” Verse 50 says, “So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone, and struck the Philistine and killed him…”
Do you have stone verses in the ‘bag’ of your heart? We are instructed by God to hide His word in our heart. That way it is ready when a fiery dart lie is lobbed at us. We don’t give it another thought, but we quote God’s word to prevail over it and kill it in its tracks.
