    Faith is key to overcoming the devil. We cannot afford to allow our faith to fail. One way to sustain our faith and have victory is to recall testimonies of what God did for us and others. David use it to overcome Goliath. Our testimony of the ability of our God is a weapon that cannot fail. Shalom!
