Who Do You Belong To

When you know who you belong to the battle is no longer yours!

1 Samuel 17 & 1 Samuel 18 (read)

Do you know who you are in Jesus? Do you have Giants in your life defeating you? This sermon by New York Times Square Church is a powerful message on "Who Do You Belong To by David Ham". We pray you listen to it accept God's Word and to be Set Free!

Do I truly know who I belong to, because when I do I will know how to stand, how to fight, how to press in, how to go forward, how to overcome, how to live a life knowing that God is faithful!

We must know who we are in Christ Jesus

David knew who he belonged to. He knew where his strength came from. He knew everything comes from God! There was NO FEAR in David because he knew who God is!

1 Samuel 17 - David and Goliath - Scene 03 - Goliath boasts

I Samuel 17 KJV 3 And the Philistines stood on a mountain on the one side, and Israel stood on a mountain on the other side: and there was a valley between them. 4 And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span. 5 And he had an helmet of brass upon his head, and he was armed with a coat of mail; and the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels of brass. 6 And he had greaves of brass upon his legs, and a target of brass between his shoulders. 7 And the staff of his spear was like a weaver's beam; and his spear's head weighed six hundred shekels of iron: and one bearing a shield went before him.

The Philistines were very large and there weapons of war were large.

KJV 11 When Saul and all Israel heard those words of the Philistine, they were dismayed, and greatly afraid.

Why were they afraid? They were afraid because they saw themselves as small in their own eyes. The Philistine came forward and took his stand every morning and evening for 40 days to challenge Israel to fight (vs16). In the meantime, David was sent to bring food and to check on the welfare of his brothers (vs18). When he arrives this is what happened.

KJV 22 And David left his carriage in the hand of the keeper of the carriage, and ran into the army, and came and saluted his brethren. 23 And as he talked with them, behold, there came up the champion, the Philistine of Gath, Goliath by name, out of the armies of the Philistines, and spake according to the same words: and David heard them. 24 And all the men of Israel, when they saw the man, fled from him, and were sore afraid.

1 Samuel 17 - David and Goliath - Scene 01 - David sees Goliath jeering

One of David's brothers becomes angry with him and says to him "KJV 28 I know thy pride, and the naughtiness of thine heart; for thou art come down that thou mightest see the battle." David did not understand why they were not fighting. David says to Saul "KJV 32 Let no man's heart fail because of him; thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine." David was much smaller in stature then the Philistines but he knew his God and was not afraid. God had prepared David and made him ready for the upcoming battle! Where did his strength and courage come from?

45 KJV Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.

David knew his strength and courage came from God which made him SECURE in his God! So God defeated this GIANT through David.
