what does your future look like
Before going into battle a soldier needs to prepare. To wear the proper armour and get hold of a shield and sword. The armour protects from harm as well as the sword kills the not so good guy. You also have to be fighting fit. It's the same if you battle against yourself. You need protection from dangerous illusions and also to be equipped with right knowledge and understanding. David proved himself to be one of the anointed warriors of Israel. He would not fight in the own might however with the strength of the Spirit. ?The Philistine commanders continued to travel out to battle, in addition to being often as they did, David met with more success as opposed to rest of Saul?s officers, with his fantastic name became popular? (I Sam. 18:30, NIV).
