A Transformation is Needed

Today’s 333 Devotional: “A Transformation is Needed”

When the Spirit of God takes over our lives, we’re no longer going to be the same, and those who know us will see us in a completely different light. No longer will we be classified as what we were, sinners, instead we’ll be seen as to who we are in Christ, saints and warriors for God.

We see this needed transformation in the story of David and Goliath.

Today we face similar giants who threaten all that we stand for, all that we hold dear as believers in Jesus Christ. These giants spew out their hatred for God, the things of God, and the people of God much the same as Goliath did.

When David heard these remarks directed towards God and His people, he transformed himself, so much so that even King Saul questioned who he was. This is interesting because Saul knew David as a musician, a person who through his music could drive away the demons of depression.

But now Saul saw David in a completely different light. He saw David as a warrior, and so he asked, “Whose son is this youth?” (1 Samuel 17:55)

Saul no longer saw David as just a musician, but now he saw him as a mighty man of valor.

Now is the time for our transformation. Our friends and family need to no longer see us as singers of hymns on Sunday morning, instead they need to see us as mighty men and women of valor.

But just as David refused King Saul’s armor, we need to refuse the weaponry of this world.

Instead, we’re to fight with God’s armor, that is, the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the belt of truth, the sandals of peace, the shield of faith, and the sword of the Spirit, the word of God, along with Spirit directed prayer (Ephesians 6:12-18).

To fight the battles, therefore, a transformation is needed. We need to become mighty men and women of valor.
