Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
Then David dwelt in the stronghold; therefore they called it the City of David. – 1 Chron 11:7

When David came to Jebus, the inhabitants said, “You shall not come in here” (v 5)! But David took the city. He did what his enemy said could not be done. Several verses later, we see that David not only defeated the city and overcame the odds; he dwelt there. That city was no longer called Jebus; it had become the City of David.

David dwelt – i.e. made a home in – the very place his enemy said was off limits. What has Satan tried to convince you is off limits? A stable job? A loving family? A restored relationship with God Himself? When the enemy says you can’t have it, take it as a challenge. You will not only take it; you will dwell there, and live in the promise of God.

Prayer:

Father, thank You for victory over my enemies! I am so grateful for the victory You have given me in Jesus Christ. I will crush Satan under my feet, in Jesus’ name.
