Introduction

Why are we so tired? It seems as if we are worn out. A vast majority of people, not just Christians, are disgusted, discouraged and defeated. There must be a reason or reasons why. Sometime ago the Lord gave me this title. For a long time I would just mention the title in my messages and the response would be very encouraging. But I really had not given the subject a whole lot of thought. Then it would come up more and more. So I finally decided that I would give it a shot. And here it is. I hope that you will find this attempt to bring some sort of balance to the body of Christ concerning spiritual warfare, and just plain everyday living worthy of your time.

God bless you,

Randy Newberry

Chapter 1: The Warfare

David declared in 1 Samuel 17:47, And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give you into our hands. Of course, this particular battle is the epic battle of the Israelites and the Philistines. We know it as the story of David and Goliath, but it really was not just about David and Goliath. It is a graphic picture of the church. We see the Israelites on one mountain and the Philistines on another with a valley between them.

The Philistines would send out their champion named Goliath (whose name means splendor). He would challenge the Israelites every day for forty days. Forty is the number of temptation in scripture. Jesus was tempted forty days in the wilderness (Matthew 4:1). Every day the giant, Goliath, would issue a challenge to the Israelites to send out a man to fight against him. Whoever would win this fight, the other side would serve them. My first question is, why were they letting the enemy issue the challenge? Who is he to determine our battles or strategies?

It is no wonder to me, when anyone but God is leading, that we find ourselves in situations and circumstances beyond our control. No wonder we are so tired, frustrated, and discouraged! Often I’ve wondered why so many people give up or burn out. Ministers are quitting the ministry and people are just giving up on life altogether. Something must be wrong; not with God’s plan, but perhaps our execution of His plan.

Thank God David shows up on the scene when he does. He overhears this giant challenging the people of God. David, representing our Savior, accepts the challenge. David asks in 1 Samuel 17:29, ...Is there not a cause? Sometimes the reason for our lack of determination to do what we know is right is our lack of a cause. Our cause will keep us going. It will give us the unction to function. Maybe we just need to re-examine our cause. David’s cause gave him the backbone to stand against a giant. He took care of Goliath in short order. He had faith that his God was more than able. If we really believe that our God is able, it will make our plight much easier.

There is another place in scripture where this is repeated, the battle between Jehoshaphat and the Moabites, Ammonites, and the inhabitants of Mount Seir, in 2 Chronicles 20:15. The Spirit of the Lord came upon Jahaziel, and he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s. Listen to verse 17, Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them: for the Lord will be with you. Verse 20 says, And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper. Verse 21, And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the Lord, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the Lord; for his mercy endureth for ever. Verse 22 says, And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten. There is one more verse that we must read, verse 25. "And when Jehoshaphat and his people came to take away the spoil of them, they found among them abundance both riches with the dead bodies, and precious jewels, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry away: and they were three days in gathering of the spoil, it
