The Enforcer!

The story is told in 1 Samuel 30, that King David and his men returned to a town and found that it was burned, and their wives and sons and daughters were taken captive. He and the men with him lifted up their voices and wept until they had no more strength to weep. His two wives also had been taken captive, and his men spoke of stoning him because they were all bitterly grieved. But David encouraged and strengthened himself in the Lord and inquired of the Lord, saying, Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them? The Lord answered him, Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all. So David went, he and the 600 men with him smote the enemy from twilight to the evening of the next day, and not a man of them escaped, except 400 youths who rode camels and fled. David recovered all that the enemy had taken and rescued his two wives. Nothing was missing, small or great, sons or daughters, spoil or anything that had been taken; David recovered all.

David and Goliath -The size of the problem does not matter to the Enforcer of God's promises!
The promises in the Word of God don’t come to pass automatically but are conditional on our enforcement. Like David, God gives us word or a promise, but it is up to us to enforce it. David heard God’s promise, but he had to go out and enforce the result by decisive and aggressive action.
Has the enemy stolen your health, your money, your peace or your joy? Jesus tells us that, “The thief (Satan) comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10. Again, the Bible tells us to, “Submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7.

Wikipedia reads that the term “enforcer” is an unofficial role in ice hockey. The term is sometimes used synonymously with "fighter" or "tough guy".  An enforcer's job is to deter and respond to dirty or violent play by the opposition. When such play occurs, the enforcer is expected to respond aggressively, by fighting or checking the offender. Enforcers are expected to react particularly harshly to violence against star players or goalies.

As a believer you must take up the role of the enforcer and stand, stand and stand on the promises of God aggressively until they materialize. Either God’s promises are true, or He does not mean them. You decide. “Let God be true and every man a liar.” Romans 3:4. If anyone tells you that God is bringing on the problem or just testing you or is saying no to you concerning a promise, let God be true and that man a liar.
Mark 4:15 clearly tells us that problems arise through the devil to pressurize you into giving up on the Word of God. Respond with mental aggression and strength and deter dirty mental play by Satan who is getting to your mind through another person(s). Don’t believe their words, believe the written promise.
Too many good believers never see God’s promises fulfilled. Don’t be one of them. Just like David, strengthen yourself in God’s word, and enforce the victory!
