Scripture Text: 1 Samuel 17:38-40
38“Then Saul dressed David in his own tunic. He put a coat of armor on him and a bronze helmet on his head.
39 David fastened on his sword over the tunic and tried walking around, because he was not used to them. “I cannot go in these,” he said to Saul, “because I am not used to them.” So he took them off.
40 Then he took his staff in his hand, chose five smooth stones from the stream, put them in the pouch of his shepherd’s bag and, with his sling in his hand, approached the Philistine.”
5 Smooth Stones
Summary: David needed no sword, spear, helmet, etc., but God's weapons -- the 5 smooth stones of the Name of Jesus, the Blood of Christ, the Word of God, the Spirit, and prayer. By those our giants will fall too!
Point I. What is your Goliath
David represents the believer, full of faith and in communion with God. Goliath represents the devil or the attack of adverse circumstances.
Point II. What are our Weapons?
It’s interesting that Saul wanted David to use the same weapons GOLIATH was using; that would put David on the same level with Goliath. But the Bible says, 2 Corinthians 10-4 “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds.”
Point III. The 5 Smooth Stones
FIRST STONE – The Name of Jesus
The Name of Jesus is a proxy for the Person of Jesus Himself. How many of you know, There’s No Other Name like the Name of Jesus!
SECOND STONE – The Word of God
The Word of God is a weapon. Jesus used the Word of God when battling Satan the 40 days of fasting.
It’s necessary we commit the Word to memory. It is the “Sword of the Spirit!”
THIRD STONE – The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is a wonderful gift God has given us to overcome the enemy and difficulties
FOURTH STONE – The Blood of Christ
The Blood is the ultimate STAIN REMOVER.
FIFTH STONE – Prayer
To “strive together” suggests that prayer is a strenuous work.
It’s time you realized WHO YOU ARE and TAKE CONTROL of the areas over which the Lord has given you authority. You have the Law of Imminent Domain. You have spiritual authority over your family, your finances, your health, your school, your relationships, and your spiritual condition.
It’s time to pull out one of GOD’S 5 SMOOTH STONES and put it between the devil’s eyes in spiritual warfare.
