David Was a Fighter

 

The Anointing. Ps.89:20

2Sam.17:1-2; 3-10

David was a fighter.
However, He was also a shepherd boy, an anointed singer, the sweet psalmist of Israel, a lover and handsome. But beyond this, he was a warrior, a skilled fighter, highly experienced marksman. David was so brutal in battle that Ahithophel once suggested that it will require 12,000 men to pin him down. Davis was so skilled in battle that he once paid a bloody dowry, killing 200 philistines to pay a bride price. War was Davids business. He was so good at it, so versatile in it. Himself acknowledged that it was God who taught his hands to war and his fingers to fight. God gave him an anointing to war. Ps.144:1
David was a cunning fighter. He was very shrewd, clever and tricky. Even Saul admitted to this;
1 Samuel 23:22 (KJV) Go, I pray you, prepare yet, and know and see his place where his haunt is, [and] who hath seen him there: for it is told me [that] he dealeth very subtilly.

A real anointing is what preserves and protects you from the enemy.

Psalms 89:20 (KJV)

I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him:

See the benefits of that Anointing

Psalms 89:21-25 (KJV)

With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall strengthen him. 22 The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness afflict him. 23 And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him.

But my faithfulness and my mercy [shall be] with him: and in my name shall his horn be exalted. 25 I will set his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers.

  1. My hand will establish him
  2. My arm will strengthen him
  3. The enemy will not exact (outwit, play, manipulate, violate, deceive) upon him
  4. The son of wickedness will not afflict him
  5. I will beat down his foes before his face
  6. I will plague those who hate him
  7. My faithfulness will be with him
  8. My mercy will be with him
  9. I will exalt his horn
  10. I will set his hand in the sea and his right hand in the rivers

Psalms 58:6-8 (KJV) 6 Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD. 7 Let them melt away as waters [which] run continually: [when] he bendeth [his bow to shoot] his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces. 8 As a snail [which] melteth, let [every one of them] pass away: [like] the untimely birth of a woman, [that] they may not see the sun.
