Keep No Souvenirs

Thus says the Lord of hosts, I will punish Amalek for what he did to Israel, how he set himself against him on the way while he was coming up from Egypt. Now go and strike Amalek and utterly destroy all that he has, and do not spare him. 1 Samuel 15: 2–3a NASB

In Other Words
The Lord declares: I will punish Amalek because he attacked My children in route to freedom. Now, go destroy the enemy entirely and all that he has. Take no souvenirs.

Small Bites
✓ The Lord leads us in victory
✓ When God gives us the victory, that victory is enough
✓ Take no souvenirs from the victory
✓ Keep no keepsakes or reminders, neither good nor bad
✓ Do not leave so much as a seed to sprout from the defeated enemy
✓ For the victory to last, you must erase the problem entirely
✓ Victory is incomplete until all that sustains the problem is removed
