“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 NLT).


What David said to Goliath as they closed for battle revealed his heart and passion for God’s great name. It was this same David who inspired of the Holy Spirit wrote, “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God” (Psalm 20:7).
We can depend on God’s Name for victory in our lives too. The Name of Jesus is given to us to call upon. We can ask anything in Jesus’ strong Name and the Father hears us. What giant are you facing today? Call upon Jesus. “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe” (Proverbs 18:10).
PRAYER: Dear Father, some days we know what giants we face and others they reveal themselves during the day’s journey. Yet, we would always desire to go out in Your great name, Jehovah-Tsaba, the LORD of Hosts. We don’t want to leave our homes this morning in Saul’s fleshly armor, but in Your armor, which is Your great name. Fill us afresh with Your Spirit as we carry Your name with us all the day. In the Name of Jesus, amen.
