Does an Enemy Say It Cannot Be Done?

Does not the simplicity of the following two verses amaze you? “And David and all Israel went to Jerusalem, which is Jebus, where the Jebusites were, the inhabitants of the land. But the inhabitants of Jebus said to David, ‘You shall not come in here!’ Nevertheless David took the stronghold of Zion (that is, the City of David)” (1 Chronicles 11:4-5).
Look at the simplicity:
1. David and Israel went to Jerusalem to take it.
2. The Jebusites said to David he could not take it.
3. David took the stronghold.
Do not tell a man of God that he cannot do what God has told him to do. Have you been guilty of that? On the other hand, have you been like David, doing fearlessly what God told you to do?
