45 Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.
46 This day will the Lord deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.
47 And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give you into our hands.
48 And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose, and came, and drew nigh to meet David, that David hastened, and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine.
49 And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth.
MEMORY VERSE: “Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.” – Matthew 12:29

MFM Devotional For Today MESSAGE:
Today, we shall be concluding this topic “That Giant Must Die”. In our Fire Scripture for today, David also confronted his own giant called Goliath of Gath, an intimidating foe who threatened the very fabric of the army of Israel, and seasoned soldiers were cringing in their boots. He threatened the army of Israel for 40 days. Every morning and evening, he came with a challenge that they should give him someone to fight with. It was in the process of another of his challenge that David got to the battleground and the tide turned against the Philistines. The giant called Goliath of Gath fell down flat and David used the giant’s sword to behead him.
Dear reader of this devotional, if you are going to be great in life, you will have to confront your own giant. If you are destined for success, that giant must die, like Goliath of Gath. Where are you coming from and where have you got to in the journey of your destiny? What are you facing? What have you been battling with that is making you to think of going back to Egypt to seek for help like the Israelites? I want you to take a cue from David today. In 1 Samuel 17:45-46, the Bible affirms that David stood on the testimony of God. In the name of the God of Israel, he confronted the giant called Goliath and brought him down.
Beloved, if you must go far in life, that giant must die; and for him to die, you must do the unusual. How? Goliath was not used to people coming after him; they always turn in fear and run away from him. But David did the unusual; he went after Goliath and that destabilised the giant, thereby giving David a window of opportunity to carry out his assignment. David was daring. His show of bravery and courage shocked the giant. The stone from David’s slingshot hit Goliath’s forehead and the giant died. Today, the Man of War who slew Goliath of Gath will slay the Goliath confronting your life, in the name of Jesus.
- You the giant of failure, I am not your candidate, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Powers of darkness monitoring me for evil, go blind and die, in the name of Jesus.
- Any power opposing me in my place of honour, die, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, arise and give me the head of my household giant, in the name of Jesus.
- Powers of my father’s house, saying I can’t have a better life, be wasted, in the name of Jesus.
- Any power anywhere dragging me backward, release me and die, in the name of Jesus.
- Jesus, appear and encounter me by fire, in the name of Jesus.
