Thoughts on a Page.

Today I logged into my classes. It is a Christian University, so a new scripture is always posted every day. Today the scripture was David 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." — 1 Samuel 17:45. This was powerful to me today. Today God pulled out His highlighter and pulled it off the page for me.

What did it mean for me? Well, it tells me that God's army is more powerful than a sword, more powerful than a spear, and more powerful than a javelin. That makes me think. Does it stop there? If his army is more powerful than those things, what does it mean for me?

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.Eph.12

If we don't war with flesh and blood, does that mean David was fighting against spiritual wickedness? If David warred against spiritual wickedness, does that mean God's army is more powerful than darkness? If God's army is more powerful than man-made weapons and more powerful than darkness, what is left for me to fear?
