From the Pastor's Desk

“For forty days the Philistine came forward every morning and evening and took his stand.” 1 Sam 17:16.

“So, we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Cor. 4:18.

Our life journey is facing one “Goliath” after another.  We shout the victory over one of these “Goliaths” and because we are still on the earth, and the Devil is not dead, we soon face another.  Goliath’s threaten in so many ways. 

Whether we recognise them or not, they are ‘still there.’  They are that voice that tempts, that vexes, that harasses, that prevents, that sickens, that robs, that creates the evil imaginations, that accuses, that exhausts, that oppresses, and so many other things. 

Goliath came every day.  Soon, a whole nation was in ‘lockdown,’ paralysed by the spirit of fear.  He desired access to the very life, the very core of the covenant believer—their spirit.  Satan knows his time is short.  He will make his last great effort to destroy everyone who is not 'hidden’ in God…he cannot steal your eternal salvation, but he can steal so much that belongs to you, if you unwittingly, allow him to do so. 

The world today undergoes a severe testing.  It is an ‘octopus’ of tests—in that is has so many ‘arms,’ that can suck the very life out of you.  We must ‘see and discern’ the Goliath.  We must put on the full armour of God.  We must discover new places of safety, in this season of life, in our relationship to Jesus. We must ‘fix’ our eyes. Love Him, see what you need to see to live well.
