The Pattern

"BE STRONG AND OF GOOD COURAGE"

We will all face spiritual Goliath’s.

No matter where these spiritual Goliath's are located or their identity they need to be struck down and driven out.

Otherwise they will trouble us and the people around us.

We cannot allow (Goliath’s) problems to fester or annoy us.

Consider these portions of God’s word.

Acts 16:16-18 (NKJV) (For me this spirit is like a Goliath)
16  Now it happened, as we went to prayer, that a certain slave girl possessed with a spirit of divination met us, who brought her masters much profit by fortune-telling.

17  This girl followed Paul and us, and cried out, saying, "These men are the servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to us the way of salvation."

18  And this she did for many days. But Paul, greatly annoyed, (AMP says, being sorely annoyed and worn out) turned and said to the spirit, "I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her." And he came out that very hour.

Psalm 44:5 (KJV)
Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us.

Joshua 10:24-26 (NKJV) (Joshua provides an object lesson)
24  So it was, when they brought out those kings to Joshua, that Joshua called for all the men of Israel, and said to the captains of the men of war who went with him, "Come near, put your feet on the necks of these kings." And they drew near and put their feet on their necks.

25  Then Joshua said to them, "Do not be afraid, nor be dismayed; be strong and of good courage, for thus the LORD will do to all your enemies against whom you fight."

26  And afterward Joshua struck them and killed them, and hanged them on five trees; and they were hanging on the trees until evening.
