love“David answered, “You come at me with sword and spear and battle-ax. I come at you in the name of God-of-the-Angel-Armies, the God of Israel’s troops, whom you curse and mock. 46 This very day God is handing you over to me. I’m about to kill you, cut off your head, and serve up your body and the bodies of your Philistine buddies to the crows and coyotes. The whole earth will know that there’s an extraordinary God in Israel. 47 And everyone gathered here will learn that God doesn’t save by means of sword or spear. The battle belongs to God — he’s handing you to us on a platter!” (1 Samuel 17:45-47, The Message)

I heard the Lord say, “I am handing over the enemy to you.” Satan loves to use all of his tools and tactics against us to knock us down but we have something much greater, the name of the Lord! The enemy in your life is being handed over to you and you attack everything in your life by simply speaking the name of the Lord over your situation. Today, this very day, God is handing
your enemy over to you.

It’s time for you to kill it and cut off its head. It’s time for those around you to see that we battle different, we battle in the name of Jesus. We don’t need sword and spear, we need the name that is above all names. The battle belongs to God and He’s handing over the enemy to you on a platter!

Today is your day of victory!
