Dear Ones,

Who are you?  You are a power-packed agent of change.  You are an anointed ambassador of Christ.  You are someone’s miracle answer.  You are a champion spirit.  You are victory in the making.  If you are a born-again believer, you are anointed with the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead (Rom. 8:11) and fully equipped to slay every giant in your life and to minister power into the lives of those around you.  Nothing in the earth can stop you, unless you choose to not walk in the authority and power Jesus has delivered to you.  Scripture tells you that you have received Jesus’ Anointing (1 Jn. 2:20, 27).  What more do you need?  What are you waiting for?

Don’t make your giants bigger than the Anointing within you.  Don’t let the devil bully you and torment you with thoughts that you are defeated or facing mountains you cannot level.  Jesus has already established you as the victor!  Colossians 2:9 tells you that “in Christ all the fullness of the Deity (God) lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ, Who is the head over every power and authority.”  Verses 13 and 15 go on to tell you that God has made you alive in Christ, Who has disarmed every power and authority born out of the sinful nature, in other words every power or authority that opposes Christ, and Christ triumphed over all of them at the cross.  Satan is stripped of all of his power; he is dethroned, left powerless, utterly humiliated by Christ.  Christ has delivered His victory to you!  He has destroyed the power of the devil and freed us to receive His triumph as our own (Heb. 2:14-16).  

Know who you are in Christ!  Walk as the conqueror you really are!  Goliath has been given into your hands!  The devil will try to make you believe that you are a young, skinny, weak person armed with only sticks that he can feed “to the birds of the air and the beasts of the field” (1 Sam. 17:41-44).  BUT, David knew who he was, and he knew Who was with him!  He retorted to Goliath, “I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defiled.  This day the Lord will hand you over to me, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head.  Today, I will give [you]. . .to the birds of the air and the beasts of the earth, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel.”  Do you see that David used Goliath’s very own taunting words against him?  That’s what you need to do when thoughts of lack or defeat come to you!  Talk back, people!  Believe in the God that lives within you!  He has given you His almighty strength and power to defeat every enemy!  You have already won the crown with Christ.  Believe who you are in Christ.  He has not left you powerless or comfortless, but powerful and full of peace!  David could have believed the giant; he could have been moved by what he saw in the natural; he could have been filled with fear from the words of Goliath, but he wasn’t.  He was moved by the power of His God!  Think about it, and thank God for it. . .you have an even greater covenant than David had.  You have the Anointing living within you, every moment of every day, the power and authority of the resurrected Christ.  David didn’t have that, and yet he slew his giant!  How much more can you do?  Greater is He Who lives in us than He who lives in the world (1 Jn. 4:4)!  As I said before, don’t make your giants bigger than the Anointing living on the inside of you!  Believe the Anointing.  Believe His power working for you and in you!  You are more than a conqueror through Christ living in you (Rom. 8:37)!

Now take the power that Christ has won for you, that has been deposited in you and change the world for Him,

If you have never made Jesus the Lord of your life and desire to, pray this:  Dear God, I believe that Jesus is your Son, that He died on the cross for me and was resurrected for my redemption.  I choose to make Jesus the Lord of my life.  I thank you for forgiving me and for filling me with Your Holy Spirit.  I thank You that I am Your child, that You are my Father, and that You have great things planned for me.  Amen.
