Dear Partners and Friends,
2014 started with a bang! Charis Bible College (CBC) moved into their new home on January 6 and
on March 22 we welcomed hundreds of people to the Grand Opening Celebration of our new CBC campus
in Woodland Park. Phase I, The Barn, is complete thanks to your faithful giving, and we are looking forward
to breaking ground on Phase II shortly. Please check out the “Grand Opening” article in this issue. You’ll be
blessed by the story of how one person’s faithfulness played a big part in making The Sanctuary project a reality.
You’ll also be encouraged by all the testimonies peppered throughout this issue. Your faithful support of this
ministry is helping set people free from things like chronic disease, religious thinking and even atheism. We’ve
also included an excerpt from my new book, Lessons from David, which highlights that God is faithful even when
we aren’t faithful.
Let me mention my new online video broadcast as well, The Inside Story. Each episode features a behind the
scenes look at some of the lesser-known, but essential, inner workings of Andrew Wommack Ministries. I really
want you to know all the awesome things the Lord is doing here. Be sure to check out the article about what I
consider to be my best kept secret!
Finally, this year, for the first time, we will be hosting the Summer Family Bible Conference at The Barn. We have
a great week planned for the whole family. Jamie and I hope you will join us at what has become a favourite
summer event for many families. We look forward to seeing you soon and showing you around the new facility.

You are blessed,
Andrew and Jamie

and the naughtiness Most Christians have heard the story of David defeating Goliath. he began to be criticised by his brother and others: David’s reference to Goliath being uncircumcised was pointing out that Goliath didn’t have any covenant rights like David did.w Lessons from David by Andrew Wommack Whatever problem you are facing today. It has to first come from the inside! What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine. and Eliab’s anger was kindled against David. in your health. all true believers have covenant rights to And Eliab his eldest brother heard when he spake unto the men. In fact. in your marriage or any other area. While others only saw the giant. but they didn’t act like it! Likewise. prosperity. Goliath was a man. and taketh away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine. but have they applied these same principles to their giants? One of the foundational truths that enabled him to face this giant was that he viewed the whole situation through God’s covenant: Spring 2014 5 . When David voiced his faith in the covenant of God more than what he saw. they would experience true victory – everything would be all right. David kept his attention on the promises of God. He was a big man but a man nonetheless. You don’t get victory from the outside first. but that isn’t so. and peace. Those Israelite soldiers were looking at Goliath and not at God’s promises. but not all look at their circumstances through their covenant. your problem is not in your circumstances. 11:25). Most people think that if they could just get a certain situation worked out or changed in their favour. every Israelite soldier was one of God’s covenant people. that he should defy the armies of the living God? 1 Samuel 17:26 health. and he said. whether in your finances. joy. Why camest thou down hither? and with whom hast thou left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know thy pride. The Lord had promised them that no man would be able to stand before them (Deut.

but you need to take this stance like David did. but you have a cause greater than what others think. we won’t be given more (Luke 16:10-12). I think Saul recognised the anointing of God upon David. but All true believers have covenant rights to health. he would have lost his opportunity to defeat Goliath. People will tell you your faith in God won’t overcome your giants. the Israelite king. So. but if you persist. He knew how powerful it was. shall be as one of them. seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God. [29] And David said. 1 Samuel 17:28-30 David could have tried to justify himself to his brother. This was a miracle in itself. then you have a cause greater than what others think. 1 Samuel 17:34-37a Notice that David began to rehearse to the king the victories the Lord had given him. It was at his father’s command that he had left the sheep and come to bring gifts to his brothers. “Is there not a cause?” Ask yourself. “Is the thing I want victory over worth fighting for?” If it is. That’s what Saul did.Lessons from David of thine heart. David had to endure the mockery of his enemy. [36] Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine 6 GospelTruth You might face opposition when you start communicating what God has put in your heart. he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. Even the king tried to talk David out of what was in his heart: He spoke of David’s inexperience and size compared to Goliath’s. and a bear. Had he not been faithful with the few sheep the Lord had given him to keep on the backside of the desert. he never would have been able to stand up to Goliath. and delivered it out of his mouth: and when he arose against me. and smote him. even from family members. Saul had once operated under that anointing. but look at David’s reply: Thy servant kept his father’s sheep. Listen to what the giant said: . and out of the paw of the bear. David was wise to stick with what had already been proven in his life. Goliath. he let David go. Saul was fearful of Goliath just like all the rest. and took a lamb out of the flock: [35] And I went out after him. He wanted to give David his armour. but why should David put his faith in Saul’s armour? It hadn’t done anything for Saul. and slew him. when you start communicating what God has put in your heart. I caught him by his beard. but he tried to put his armour on him first. David’s faith and confidence in the Lord convinced King Saul to let him represent Israel and go fight Goliath. [37a] David said moreover. but few will be faithful in the little things God gives them when no one is watching. Many want to win against the giants when the grandstands are full. What have I now done? Is there not a cause? [30] And he turned from him toward another. You might face opposition. The LORD that delivered me out of the paw of the lion. even if David had won the argument. It was only after he turned from his brother and repeated his statements of faith that someone heard what he said and told Saul. and smote him. prosperity. and there came a lion.

If we aren’t faithful in that which is least. for thou art come down that thou mightest see the battle. but not all look at their circumstances through their covenant. Next.

and with a spear. and to the wild beasts of the earth. he disdained him: for he was but a youth. but David wouldn’t have been a hero if he had slain a midget. and cut off his head therewith. 1 Samuel 17:42-44 Don’t think that just because you’re armed with what God has given you. and ruddy. all doubt was removed. you only have a “mony. like David did: Then said David to the Philistine. [46] This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand. 1 Samuel 17:50b-51a You’ve got to pursue your enemies until they can’t come back! If you read the whole story. but David didn’t stop there. and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air. They are left to fight us another day. and take thine head from thee. whatever giant you are facing can become the greatest victory in your life as you stand on Spring 2014 7 . Goliath could have tripped. or maybe he was just wounded and would get back up and win yet. [43] And the Philistine said unto David. They could never come back to fight him. but David pursued his enemies until they were destroyed. [44] And the Philistine said to David. and to the beasts of the field. and of a fair countenance. 1 Samuel 17:48b The Spirit of the Lord was on David – he wasn’t afraid! He rushed at this giant. the God of the armies of Israel. My greatest tests have become my greatest testimonies. You’ve got to be bold and stand strong in the face of the enemy. and he will give you into our hands. We only fight sickness until it gets to where it’s not too bad. The giants in your life are actually great opportunities for God to show Himself strong on your behalf. the giants in your life will be intimidated by you. you will run to it. Do you really believe what God said or not? Are you all talk? The giants are going to test what God has put in you. and took his sword. you won’t run from a fight. Likewise. 1 Samuel 17:45-47 David wasn’t all talk! Look what he did when Goliath approached him: David hasted. and I will smite thee. where David pursued the Amalekites until he had recovered all he had lost. and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts. whom thou hast defied. You know. your attitude toward your giants will be very telling when it’s time to face them. and drew it out of the sheath thereof. Am I a dog. David used his sling and a stone to bring the giant down. We sometimes just fight our enemies until they go over the hill. Thou comest to me with a sword. that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. that thou comest to me with staves? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine. we can live with the rest. [ a] Therefore David ran. People don’t like to face giants. Come to me. They were at a far distance and didn’t know exactly what had happened. and slew him. Of course. The giants in your life are actually great opportunities for God to show Himself strong on your behalf.” David’s victory over Goliath catapulted him into his destiny. and stood upon the Philistine. [47] And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD’S. and I will give the carcasses of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air. and saw David. If you don’t have a test.Lessons from David And when the Philistine looked about. First Samuel 30:10-18 is a good example of this.
