The War of Words: Taunting the Enemy
In 1 Samuel 17, Goliath taunted Israel, using words to create fear. This is similar to what Sennacherib did to Hezekiah, which I examined in the previous study of this series. However, David responded with his own words, declaring that God would come through for him.
When we face battles today, we must also win the war of words in order to win the battle. The following video studies this important truth.

Studies of Biblical Battles
This teaching is part of a series which studies a number of battles in the Old Testament to teach us principles for our lives today. The entire series is available on this website.
Use your Words
When facing a battle, there is often a war of words. The enemy taunts your mind by claiming you will not overcome. You need to use your words back by declaring how great God is and that He is on your side. Speak our your confidence that God will cause you to win the battle.
This verbal war is so important. Many are defeated by the enemies declarations which create doubt in our minds. By speaking out the Word of God, we stir up our own confidence in God.
David refused to let Goliath’s Taunts beat him
While Goliath tried to discourage David, David refused to let him. David kept speaking out what God would do. David won the war of words before beating Goliath.
By speaking out confidence in God, we encourage ourselves and keep our focus.
