THEME : DIVINE CHAMPION II.
MEMORISE : But they that wait upon
the LORD shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as
eagles; they shall run, and not be
weary; and they shall walk, and not
faint.
Isaiah 40 : 31.
READ : ISAIAH 40 : 28 – 31.
Isa 40 : 28 Hast thou not known?
hast thou not heard, that the
everlasting God, the LORD, the
Creator of the ends of the earth,
fainteth not, neither is weary? there
is no searching of his understanding.
Isa 40 : 29 He giveth power to the
faint; and to them that have no
might he increaseth strength.
Isa 40 : 30 Even the youths shall
faint and be weary, and the young
men shall utterly fall:
Isa 40 : 31 But they that wait upon
the LORD shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as
eagles; they shall run, and not be
weary; and they shall walk, and not
faint.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR : ISAIAH 49 – 51;
PSALM 40 : 1 – 10.
Yesterday we discovered that our
Lord Jesus Christ is the number one
champion and that He makes His
people champions. We saw also that
a divine champion is a person raised
up and supported by God.
One attribute of a champion is
strength. The divine champion is one
who receives divine strengthening. 1
Samuel 2 : 9 says by strength (i.e.
human ability) shall no man prevail.
The required divine strength for
success, achievement, getting to the
top etc is supplied to the divine
champion by God. Hannah, who by
inspiration of the Holy Spirit
proclaimed those words in prayers,
had that experience. She became a
champion by divine strengthening.
She received strength to put an end
to her barrenness, thus her shame
and reproach were taken away. Every
barren child of God using this
devotional right now, today marks
that turning point in the story of
your life; the strength for conception
comes into you right now in Jesus’
Name. Having delivered our first
three children by caesarean section,
by this same divine strengthening,
my wife safely delivered our fourth
child by herself contrary to the
expert’s opinion. The Lord who did it
for us will do it for you.
By the time divine strength came
upon Elijah the divine champion, He
ran on foot ahead of the king’s
chariot to the city of Jezreel ( 1 Kings
18 : 46 ). Thus, the divine champion
is always physically strong in his
body – no room for sickness at all.
Though it was by divine ability that
David tore both the lion and the bear
while shepherding his father’s flock,
he would not have been a sickly
fellow to be in the wilderness looking
after the animals. Likewise, though
God was the one behind his killing of
the giant Goliath with a catapult, he
would no doubt have been healthy in
his body to be strong enough to pull
the catapult string. Jesus our Master
is the number one divine champion;
we can only be divine champions
because He is. There is no one
occasion recorded where he was
having a simple headache. Therefore,
we His champions have no business
being sick. Rather, what Jesus was
doing is what we are meant to be
doing also, i.e. giving health to the
sick ( Acts 10 : 38 ).
PRAYER POINT :
Father, make me a divine champion
full of the anointing, and give me a
strong sickness-free body for your
service.
