My commands are that you come to me each day and let me teach you, my ways. Let me teach you how to speak to the darkness covering the earth and command it to obey. I am the Light of the World, so command my Light to shine in the dark places of the world and command the dark forces to flee. You are my stewards so command and decree that it be so. Raise your hand and command it to be so! Raise your voice against the enemy forces and command them to the Abyss! My ways have not been a part of your vocabulary in a very long time, but now I’m commanding you to do so. Open your mouth and let my commands come out setting the prisoners free. Let my justice be released across this land tearing down the strongholds built up by man.
My ways are high above your ways, so ask me what to do. Come to me on bended knee and spend time with me. I will teach you what to say and show you what to do by bringing things to your mind. Do not fear when YAHWEH is near; I am over all things. Do not fear what man can do, but trust and obey my voice.
Raise my banner across this land. Raise your voices against the dark forces. Raise your hands and lift them high, declaring my victory across the skies. No forces of evil will overtake this land, for this land is my land and you and I will stand together and make the commands. You and I will work together to bring about my justice across this land. I have given you everything you need to steward this land and give all glory to me. For it will not be done by your hand, but by my Spirit and by my commands. My Spirit within you will show you what to do; he will open your eyes and show you what to remove. There is much work to be done, so come unto me. Surrender your will and I will set men free.
You are my stewards, my chosen ones. You have been appointed to get this work done. You were created for such a time as this; to command the demons to depart from this land and go into the Abyss. Take back possession of this land and stand your ground against the enemy’s hand. His reach is only so far and you have the ability to put him behind bars. So, stand and fight for your territory and watch the Glory of the LORD bring you victory!
David Kills Goliath 1 Samuel 17: 32-50 NLT
32“Don’t worry about this Philistine,” David told Saul. “I’ll go fight him!”
33“Don’t be ridiculous!” Saul replied. “There’s no way you can fight this Philistine and possibly win! You’re only a boy, and he’s been a man of war since his youth.”
34But David persisted. “I have been taking care of my father’s sheep and goats,” he said. “When a lion or a bear comes to steal a lamb from the flock, 35I go after it with a club and rescue the lamb from its mouth. If the animal turns on me, I catch it by the jaw and club it to death. 36I have done this to both lions and bears, and I’ll do it to this pagan Philistine, too, for he has defied the armies of the living God! 37The LORD who rescued me from the claws of the lion and the bear will rescue me from this Philistine!”
Saul finally consented. “All right, go ahead,” he said. “And may the LORD be with you!”
38Then Saul gave David his own armor—a bronze helmet and a coat of mail. 39David put it on, strapped the sword over it, and took a step or two to see what it was like, for he had never worn such things before.
“I can’t go in these,” he protested to Saul. “I’m not used to them.” So David took them off again. 40He picked up five smooth stones from a stream and put them into his shepherd’s bag. Then, armed only with his shepherd’s staff and sling, he started across the valley to fight the Philistine.
41Goliath walked out toward David with his shield bearer ahead of him, 42sneering in contempt at this ruddy-faced boy. 43“Am I a dog,” he roared at David, “that you come at me with a stick?” And he cursed David by the names of his gods. 44“Come over here, and I’ll give your flesh to the birds and wild animals!” Goliath yelled.
45David replied to the Philistine, “You come to me with sword, spear, and javelin, but I come to you in the name of the LORD of Heaven’s Armies—the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. 46Today the LORD will conquer you, and I will kill you and cut off your head. And then I will give the dead bodies of your men to the birds and wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel! 47And everyone assembled here will know that the LORD rescues his people, but not with sword and spear. This is the LORD’s battle, and he will give you to us!”
48As Goliath moved closer to attack, David quickly ran out to meet him. 49Reaching into his shepherd’s bag and taking out a stone, he hurled it with his sling and hit the Philistine in the forehead. The stone sank in, and Goliath stumbled and fell face down on the ground.
50So David triumphed over the Philistine with only a sling and a stone, for he had no sword. 51Then David ran over and pulled Goliath’s sword from its sheath. David used it to kill him and cut off his head.
