    The Amalekites Kill

    Now it happened, when David and his men came to Ziklag, on the third day, that the Amalekites had invaded the South and Ziklag, attacked Ziklag and burned it with fire,

    1 Samuel 30:1

    While David and his men where gathered with the Philistine king, Achish at Aphek, their city, Ziklag, was left defenseless. Because their army was away from the city, the Amalekites came in and burned the city, taking all the spoils with them. They attacked when the city’s defense was down.

    Biblically, the Amalekites represent the flesh. When we are weak spiritually, our flesh can bring us down. If we do not crucify the old man, the flesh, it will always be waiting for those times of weakness to invade our lives.

    Do you know how many people have been wiped out because of the Amalekites in their lives? If you do not take care of the Amalekites in your life, your Amalekites will defeat you; eventually they will take over your life. There have been so many who have been used tremendously by the Lord, but then the Amalekites took them captive. They did not heed the warning. They did not commit themselves, they did not humble themselves, and they did not reckon the old man to be dead.

    Does this mean Satan and our flesh are more powerful than God? Of course not, but we have to submit our lives to the Lord and stop making excuses for the things we do in the flesh. Face the facts. Look in the mirror and admit the truth. We can deceive our wives, our children and other people but God tests your real heart. He knows your real heart.

    We are not here to commune with darkness
    but to conquer it.
