HE EMPOWERS WORDS
Memory Verse: And Samuel grew,
and the LORD was with him, and did
let none of his words fall to the
ground. 1 Samuel 3:19
Read: 1 Samuel 3:19-21
19 And Samuel grew, and the LORD
was with him, and did let none of
his words fall to the ground.
20 And all Israel from Dan even to
Beersheba knew that Samuel was
established to be a prophet of the
LORD.
21 And the LORD appeared again in
Shiloh: for the LORD revealed himself
to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of
the LORD.
Message
When you become a divine
champion, God will support,
promote, strengthen, and make you
wise; He will love you, sponsor and
sustain you. May He do all these to
you from today. In addition, a divine
champion fights in the name of the
Almighty God. When David was in
the ring with Goliath, he told him,
you have come to fight me with
physical weapons but I have come
to fight you with the name of the
Lord (1 Samuel 17:45). A divine
champion is an ambassador of the
Lord. When he speaks, God backs up
his words. Concerning one divine
champion, 1 Samuel 3:19 has this to
say:
“And Samuel grew, and the LORD
was with him, and did let none of
his words fall to the ground.”
This is so reassuring and powerful!
That a man will decree a thing and
God will take up the responsibility of
effecting it. In other words, God’s
champion gives God tasks to do and
He obeys. That also means that God
is as committed to His champion as
much as His champion is committed
to Him.
In 2 Kings 1:9-12, when some bands
of soldiers came to arrest Elijah, they
said to him, ‘Man of God, the king
wants to see you’. He replied, ‘If I am
a man of God, let fire descend from
heaven and roast you’: and it was so.
God sent fire from Heaven which
reduced the soldiers to ashes. At
another time, the same Elijah told
King Ahab, ‘As God remains on the
throne and I remain His servant, the
windows of heaven are shut from
giving rain for some years until I
reverse this decree’ (1 Kings 17:1):
and it was so. For the next three and
half years, the nation went through
its worst drought because God
backed up the words of His
champion. Are you a divine
champion? How many of your
decrees have received divine
backing? Yet, this is achievable! If
God will let none of the words of
Samuel fall to the ground, He can
equally uphold yours. The question
is: what have you done to provoke
divine backing? How obedient are
you to divine instructions? How
much of His Word do you listen to,
study, memorise and meditate
upon? Do you honour God above
everything else? Do you win souls?
Key Point
Which do you belong to of these
two categories of God’s servants –
those that God upholds and
establish their words or those that
lack divine backing and their words
fail?
