40 DAY BATTLE PLAN TO SLAY THE GIANTS WE FACE

Father, we come before you today and ask that you would help us have a heart like David. Help us to be brave and take a stand in these battles we face. Help us to always be prepared, wear your armor, run fast, and sing. Help us to work with You, in unity, in this deliverance project You have us engaged in and not against You. Help us to be shrewd: wise as snakes and as innocent as doves. Help us to repent for our sins, not focus on the sins of others. Hear our prayers. Forgive us. Help us to forgive others.  Heal us. Make us one people – with You.

On the National Day of Prayer, as I gathered with people in my hometown to pray, one of my friends felt prophetically led for us to pray Psalm 18David’s Song of Deliverance.  Although I’ve studied this psalm deeply before thanks to giants in my life, looking at scripture each time with fresh eyes allows God to strengthen our relationship, experience, and knowledge of Him. He wants to reveal treasure in His word to help us string pearls of wisdom and precious jewels together.

In studying Psalm 18, you quickly learn it is connected to David’s Song of Deliverance in 2 Samuel 22.  Studying the songs word by word you realize that some of the text is inverted.  It appears that 2 Samuel 22 focuses on a physical deliverance from enemies, while Psalm 18 focuses on the spiritual deliverance from enemies.

Isn’t that what we still experience today – a need for deliverance from our physical and spiritual enemies?

2 Samuel 22 is paired with the Song of Moses in Deuteronomy 32 in the portion of scriptures during the week of Yom Kippur, or Day of Atonement. As that day approaches, we are encouraged literally to Sing (Deuteronomy 32), Sing (2 Samuel 22), Sing (Psalm 18) as we take our stand of faith to face our Father.

David sang all the time. He knew the healing power singing to God brings.  Did you know singing can reduce physical inflammation in both those who are sick, and those who are caring for them?  Singing modulates mood, stress, cortisol, cytokines, and neuropeptide activity.

Thankfully, the songs of deliverance that Moses and David sang were inspired by God and recorded in His Word. His Greatest Hits! God sings over us. Imagine what healing comes when we sing His word back to Him?

Singing His word brings His joy into all the struggles you face – grief, illness, pain, loss. Paul exhorts us to speak and sing Psalms to one another. He knew the power of deliverance in singing as well. In Acts 16, he cast out a spirit of divination from a little fortune teller girl only to be imprisoned for messing with someone’s livelihood, and source of money.  But instead of complaining in chains, he and his fellow prisoners sang to God.

Singing God’s Word can bring earthquakes that breaks our chains, and then convert our captors.

Out in the field, David had time on his hands while he watched his dad’s sheep. He used his time wisely by singing to strengthen himself for battles ahead that he had no knowledge of while also engaged in some target practice with bears and lions, wild beasts. He drew on this experience to explain his qualifications to the king of Israel to take on this wild beast of a giant, Goliath, who had marched out to scream at the Israelites for the last 40 days.

Have you noticed any giant coming out and yelling at God’s people every morning and evening for the last 40 days – or more? How about 40 years? Tired of it yet? I am.

David was offered the armor of the king of Israel to fight.  But, it didn’t fight right because he already had on the spiritual armor of the true King of Israel. While he picked up 5 small rocks, he knew deep down in his heart who His Rock of Salvation truly was.  He didn’t go into the fight unprepared, but moved in faith to prepare ahead of time. He was the only one ready when the fight came looking for them.

The enemy roared ugly words at David, too.

But David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the LORD of Hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the LORD will deliver you into my hand. This day I will strike you down, cut off your head, and give the carcasses of the Philistines to the birds of the air and the creatures of the earth. Then the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel. And all those assembled here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the LORD saves; for the battle is the LORD’s, and He will give all of you into our hands.”– 1 Samuel 17:45-47.

Today, we have to know who our enemy is – and we do not fight humans.  We fight spiritual forces of this dark world. We need to be humble realizing if we are dressed up in God’s armor, with His words coming out of our mouths, bearing His image – the battle belongs to Him.

God likes when we recognize the battle belongs to Him, then ask Him how, when, and if we should proceed, then we move in faith knowing He will act on our behalf. He doesn’t have to partner with us. He wants to.

Why did David pick up 5 rocks? What was he doing right before he broke out in song in 2 Samuel 22?

We don’t know why he picked up those five rocks instead of just one. We know he had faith, but maybe he was being extra prepared since it was a big fight. Or maybe he prophetically saw Goliath’s 3 giant brothers and another giant with six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot in 2 Samuel 21!

That’s right: Face your Goliath, and there are likely four more coming at you down the road.

And all of them were Rephaim.

The story goes that Lot was spared because eventually his progeny would bring forth David.  Lot had an illicit incident with his daughters after their deliverance from Sodom, and one of the girls had a son named Moab.  Two young Moabite women years later were married into an Israelite family.

The men died and the two daughters in law had to make a choice when the matriarch of the family was heading back to Israel.  Ruth decided to go with Naomi so that her God would be Ruth’s God and her people would be Ruth’s people.  Orpah, her sister, decided not to go with Naomi and returned to her gods and her people.

A tale of two women – the bride, and the anti-bride – a story that continues to weave through God’s Word all the way through Revelation.

Ruth moved in faith toward redemption. She became the grandmother of David and was grafted into the lineage of Christ, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Orpah did not choose redemption. She became the mother of Goliath and 3 other giants who met a dead end.

The root of the word Rephaim, is raphah, which means weaken and can mean “dead ancestors.” Ultimately, both of these words are associated with rapha, which means to heal.

Were these big, fake, dead healers?  Maybe so.

The same wordraphahis used when King Asa sought the advice of physicians over the advice of God when he was sick…and died as a result of it.

Lesson: Seek big, fake advice from a Rephaim and you may die.

The Israelites were divining familiar spirits to give them healing advice through teraphim (healing idols).  Divination is a form of sorcery – it predicts a false future. Conjuring the dead for advice is sorcery.

David fought Rephaim and broke out in praise. Paul took out sorcery and broke out in praise. There is a pattern here and given the state of the world, we might do well to pay attention.

This doesn’t mean God doesn’t give us things here on earth that bring physical healing. He does. Generally speaking, His healing methods don’t involve the use of aborted babies or have adverse side effects resulting in disability or death.

So, before we consult the mainstream medical gods or even the alternative medicine gods, and potentially sacrifice our money and our health, we should consult Yahweh first. Knowledge of good and evil still belongs to Him alone.  Seek Him, and live. Seek Him first, and all these things will be added unto you.

Our true healing, spiritual and physical, will only come from Yahweh, the creator of all things, including us.  Our nation’s and the world’s healing will only come from Him. If we would just be still (raphah), and know that He is God, He will be exalted in the nations and He will be exalted in the earth.

If you want to be a part of healing tomorrow’s world today, you have to run back to our God in repentance and in steps of obedience. Don’t return to false gods and fake religion just because your world feels like it might be falling apart.

In His redemption, there is healing. In His redemption, there is victory. In His redemption, our true enemies fall to the ground as they are placed under His feet. When that final redemption happens, in all of heaven and earth, we will sing without hesitation of the Glory of God and exalt Him.

But until that happens, we have work to do.

And we don’t just have to sit here and take the Philistines yelling at us day and night for 40 days, or more! Because we have something to say back – as long as we know who our Redeemer truly is. And those who humbly call on the Name of the Lord will be saved.

What kind of glory would have been displayed for God in all the earth if His people who are called by His Name had yelled back the same thing to Goliath as David did? WITH David? As ONE – in unity?

Fight the good fight of faith. Fight the real enemy.  Ask Him to take the giants out. Love people though, especially those in bondage to giants of fear, unbelief, pride, and divination. Be merciful to them. Help break their chains to set them free instead of condemning them and locking them up in shame. It is His kindness that leads all of us to repentance.  It’s mercy that triumphs over judgment – His, and ours.

So, shout and sing – and come back to this blog over the next 40 days to keep us posted on your progress!

Will you join us starting May 11th, 2021 to say these verses in 1 Samuel 17:45-47 every morning and every night with great faith in unity over the next 40 days to see what our Father might do in response?

  1. Prayer for President Trump
    From Psalm 18

    1 President Trump loves You, LORD, You are his Strength.
    2 LORD, You are President Trump’s Rock, his Fortress and his Deliverer; God, You are
    his Rock, in whom he takes refuge, his Shield and the Horn of Your salvation, his
    Stronghold.
    3 President Trump calls to You, LORD. You are worthy of praise, and he has been
    saved from his enemies.
    4 The cords of death entangled him; the torrents of destruction overwhelmed him.
    5 The cords of the grave coiled around him; the snares of death confronted him.
    6 In his distress he called to You, LORD; he cried to You, God for help. From Your
    temple God, You hear President Trump’s voice; his cry comes before You, God,
    into Your ears.
    7 The earth will tremble and quake, and the foundations of the mountains will shake;
    and tremble because You are angry, LORD.
    8 Smoke rises from Your nostrils; consuming fire comes from Your mouth, burning
    coals will blaze out of it.
    9 LORD part the heavens and come down; dark clouds will be under Your feet. 
    10 You will mount the cherubim and fly; You will soar on the wings of the wind.
    11 You made darkness Your covering, Your canopy around Yourself—the dark rain
    clouds of the sky. 
    12 Out of the brightness of Your presence clouds advance, with hailstones and bolts of
    lightning. 
    13 LORD, thunder from heaven; and the voice of the Most High will resound.
    14 You will shoot Your arrows and scatter the enemy, with great bolts of lightning You
    will rout them.
    15 The valleys of the sea will be exposed and the foundations of the earth laid bare
    at Your rebuke, LORD, at the blast of breath from Your nostrils. 
    16 You reach down from on high and take hold of President Trump; You draw him
    out of deep waters.
    17 LORD rescue him from his powerful enemy, from his foes, who were too strong for
    him. 
    18 They confronted him in the day of his disaster, but the LORD was his support.
    19 You bring him out into a spacious place; You rescue him because he delights in
    You.
    20 LORD, You deal with President Trump according to his righteousness; according to
    the cleanness of his hands You reward him.
    21 For President Trump has kept Your ways LORD; he is not guilty of turning from
    You, God.
    22 All Your laws are before him; he has not turned away from Your decrees.
    23 He has been blameless before You and has kept himself from sin.
    24 LORD, You have rewarded him according to Your righteousness, according to the
    cleanness of his hands in Your sight.

    Amen! 8
  2. Prayer for President Trump from 2 Samuel 22
    2 The LORD is President Trump’s rock and fortress, and his Savior;
    3 in whom he finds protection. The LORD is his shield, the power
    that saves him, and his place of safety.
    The LORD is President Trump’s refuge, his Savior, the One Who
    saves him from violence.
    4 President Trump calls on the LORD, Who is worthy of praise,
    and the LORD saves President Trump from his enemies.
    18 The LORD rescues President Trump from his powerful enemies,
    from those who hate him and were too strong for him.
    19 They attacked President Trump at a moment when he was in
    distress, but the LORD supported him.
    20 The LORD led him to a place of safety; He rescued PresidentTrump
    because He delights in him.
    21 The LORD rewarded him for doing right; He restored him because
    of his innocence.
    22 For President Trump has kept the ways of the LORD; he has not
    turned from God to follow evil.
    23 President Trump has followed all of His regulations; he has never
    abandoned His decrees.
    24 President Trump is blameless before God; he has kept himself from
    sin.
    25 The LORD rewarded President Trump for doing right. He has seen
    his innocence.
    28 The LORD rescues the humble, but His eyes watch the proud and
    humiliate them.
    29 The LORD is President Trump’s lamp; He lights up his darkness.
    31 God is a shield for all who look to him for protection.
    36 The LORD has given President Trump His shield of victory; His help
    has made him great.
    44 The LORD gives him victory over his accusers.
    48 He is the God who pays back those who would harm President
    Trump.
    49 The LORD holds him safe beyond the reach of his enemies.
    50 For this, O LORD, President Trump sings praises to Your Name.

    And we add our praises to Your Name, Jesus!

    Amen! 4
  3. Yes, I will commit to pray this passage daily. We as intercessors for God’s word can accomplish mighty things through Him in numbers. Shelly, so enjoyed your insight today. God bless you.

    Amen! 16
  4. Dear Heavenly Father, I ask that You would give us a heart like David. Help us to be brave and take a stand in the battles we face today. Help us to wear the armor You provide and be prepared. Help us repent of our sins and not focus on the sins of others. Hear our prayers and forgive us. Help us to forgive others and heal us. Make us one people – with You and help us to share that we are all one in Christ Jesus. In Jesus heavenly and holy name, amen.

    Amen! 33
  5. I am in for the challenge!
    I will read and sing His Word (passages you recommended) for the next 40 days, and be still before our Amazing Almighty God!
    Thank You Shelly for this article that encouraged me
    to look to God and His Word and not worry. God Bless You!

    Amen! 15
    1. Melodie! Thanks so much for reading it and putting it into action! Singing is so important…and it strengthens us. So SING SING SING. Let us know how it is going during this period and I have a few more blogs brewing on this story I think. There is more here than meets the eye! 🙂

      Amen! 6
  6. Shelly, since reading your message, I have been wrestling in it. This morning I read 1 Samuel 17 from the Holman Christian Standard Bible and as I prayed afterward this was shown to me, David used Goliath’s own sword to ultimately defeat him. v 51, “David ran and stood over him. He grabbed the Philistine’s sword, pulled it from its sheath, and used it to kill him. Then he cut off his head.”
    https://www.biblehub.com/1_samuel/17-51.htm

    Not only did David remove the threat with one rock, the One in which he had absolute faith in but David used Goliath’s own weapon to “kill and remove.” It was huge and probably so difficult to to even pull from its sheath plus, Goliath was still alive. David was that confident in his God. Thank you for this message which continues to encourage me. I am praying as we continue to demonstrate our confidence in OUR God, that HE, the Lord OUR Rock, will turn all the weapons of Goliath back upon “him.” In the Name of Jesus. Amen

    Amen! 26
    1. And the Rock hit Goliath where the Seal of God would have been to protect him….my friend noticed that this morning as well. There is a Mark of the Beast (forehead/right hand) but God places His Seal which provides protection on our foreheads. He first did this for Cain (oth) and then we get a little more insight into what that mark looks like in Ezekiel 9. It’s a tav.

      In modern Hebrew it has evolved into a shape that looks kind of like a lower case n.

      But back in the day it was an X….as in X marks the spot.

      Keep wrestling and praying. The more we chew on it the more treasures we will find and the more He will no doubt reveal to us. Keep going Susan!

      Amen! 8
  7. Yes! I will start today & do my very best to remember to do this every day for 40 days. God’s Word always works! God hears. God judges. God acts. Blessed is the name of the Lord & may His Glory last forever & shine in the eyes & hearts of all men on this earth.
    In Jesus name
    Amen

    Amen! 12
    1. Thank you so much Meg! We are so excited about this project. Post back here after a few days and let us know if you notice or learn anything else to add to our pile o’ pearls we are making here! 🙂

      Amen! 4
  8. Yes!! I will pray and EXPECT God to Answer and Deliver and Heal our land and Slay these small giants. Let us petition, and watch our Mighty God work!!
    Lord, You are our Strength! Thank You for Your Wonderful and Mighty Love!!
    Amen!

    Amen! 17
    1. MERLE! Wonderful. Please come back and let us know how it is going and what you learn in the process. Let us know if you see any personal giants fall. I had one fall last week and it – man – was a doozie and I was so grateful I literally broke out singing in my living room to praise Him. Only He could have done this!

      When He moves mountains, or giants, or giant mountains for us it is just amazing.

      Amen! 6
  9. 1 Samuel 17:45-47 applied as a declaration to our situation.

    We the spiritual descendants of David say to the spiritual Philistine stronghold “You come against us with lies, greed, and fear but we come against you in the name of the LORD of Hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the LORD delivers you into our hands. This day we strike you down, cut off your head, bind your power, expose your agenda, and utterly destroy you. Then the whole world will know that there is a God in this nation, the United States of America which was dedicated to God’s will, the spreading of the gospel. And all those praying will know that it is not by sword or spear for the battle is the LORD’s, and He will give all of the rebels both spiritual and physical enemies into our hands. So be it in Jesus’ name. Amen

    Amen! 23
    1. This is a great help as I copied the Complete Jewish Bible translation and I haven’t yet personalized it…finding it difficult. May God continue to bless you as you serve Him.

      Amen! 6
  10. Close your eyes each day for a few minutes. Ask God Almighty to give you (us) a continuing glimpse, based on His promises and past actions. Allow God to show you & see Him slay the giants that are everywhere in our nation today.
    He will and is doing so. David’s are arising everywhere and God is slaying those who continue to mock Him or are living with an arrogant, lying attitude. Those that “feel untouchable” – we will see the walls fall down upon them.

    Amen! 20
  11. Shelley, I love this! Psalm 18 is one of my favorite psalms and I’ve never read it through this lense before. I love that you always challenge is to constant repentance, holiness, and worship before the Lord! I love that you are so proactive in getting us to pray and declare the word. I am in on this challenge! I’m ready to see some giants fall.

    Blessings to you 🙂

    Amen! 12
    1. GLORIA! Hoooray! I just love it too…so much. I have a personal connection to this particular psalm and have spent a lot of time fighting giants in all kinds of ways. If you have time compare it to 2 Samuel 22 and you will see what I mean! There are small inversions in the text. When we see the things in scripture that are odd, we can find more in there.

      Even after this posted today a friend of mine and I were talking about it and we noticed in the verses we are reading outloud that Goliath means to win with sword and spear and javelin and David says God doesn’t win with sword or spear. He left off javelin. So we investigated that…what is that…and we think we found that it is related to authority…and even something like a scepter.

      GOD has authority over everything – even giants.

      So have fun with this. We are really excited about doing this and boy is this a good scripture to ask Him to write on our hearts….because as we learn from 2 Samuel 21…those giants just keep on coming!

      Amen! 12
  12. When there is unity in the Lord, all things are possible. I remembered this Succat Hallel prayer alert and am convinced we, on a world wide spectrum, are aligned in prayer. I humbly submit this as we are to pray for the peace of Jerusalem:

    May there be peace within your walls, and prosperity inside your fortresses.” For the sake of my brothers and friends, I will say, “Peace be within you.” For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your prosperity. Psalm 122

    https://succathallel.com/not-now-to-terrorism-in-jerusalem-how-to-pray/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=mailchimp&utm_campaign=prayer-alerts

    Amen! 21
  13. In a recent study about the number 40, I learned that biblically, the number 40 is said to represent a test, trial or judgement but not exclusively. This message encouraged every cell in my being, YES, I will recite this verse morning and night for the next 40 days. And I am praying as we all hope, that at the end of this time, our Lord and Father of Mercies, Avi HaRachamim will remove ALL our giants. Amen

    “David answered the P’lishti, “You’re coming at me with a sword, a spear and a javelin. But I’m coming at you in the name of Adonai-Tzva’ot, the God of the armies of Isra’el, whom you have challenged. Today Adonai will hand you over to me. I will attack you, lop your head off, and give the carcasses of the army of the P’lishtim to the birds in the air and the animals in the land. Then all the land will know that there is a God in Isra’el, and everyone assembled here will know that Adonai does not save by sword or spear. For this is Adonai’s battle, and he will hand you over to us.” 1 Samuel 17:45-47 Complete Jewish Bible

    Amen! 23
    1. Susan! Absolutely we are going through a test. We can do this…40 days. I am so excited it has encouraged you and we are just super excited about it also down here in Louisiana.

      Last year, our prayer group said “Arise oh Yahweh and let your enemies be scattered. Let all those who hate you flee from before You.” in the morning for 40 days and “Return oh Yahweh to the tens of thousands of thousands of Israel.” every evening. It was so empowering to jump out of bed and say that or say the second one as we laid our heads on our pillows every night before sleep that we committed to do it again for a second 40 days.

      I expect that this will do the same this year and hoping for more of us to join in! Have a great day!

      Amen! 13
