When Saul saw the army of the Philistines, he was afraid, and his heart trembled greatly.1 Samuel 28:5 ESV

Defeat is losing out or control, failing, not winning, overcoming. Our text reveals the key to being defeated.

Beloved, defeat is the opposite of victory, and is always dreaded by all, but unfortunately, even most of those who dread it still fall into it, as only a very few do escape and overcome it. Everything on earth stands on a foundation, the destruction of a foundation equals defeat and loss of victory. Fear which is the absence of faith, is the only guaranteed key to being defeated. Fear is based on shifting of focus from the Word to the world, from the Lord to the environment, from the promise to the problem. Fear always leads to wrong actions and wrong actions always bring wrong results and wrong results bring defeat. Ever wanting to be undefeated in life’s battles, never shift focus from the Word to the world.

Grace upon grace!

PRAYER: Lord Jesus, I refuse to allow anything shift my focus from the Word to the world and from You to the environment. As I feed and feast on the Word, I exchange every fear for faith and remain undefeated in Jesus name!
