Theme: The Conqueror’s Mentality.
Text: 1 Samuel 17
As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. (V48)
Sometimes what you imagined may not be in reality match up to what you are facing in reality. You may have dealt with the threats of the challenge even without facing the challenge. For example, you can deal with the fear of writing an exam even before writing the exams.
At times, you may seem that your experience and skills cannot match up the challenge. But the mindset of the conqueror is not to quit. Quitters don’t win and winners don’t quit. With the valley between them, Goliath’s full threat may not have been fully realised by David. Upon facing the man, David mustered the courage to face Goliath. Goliath moved closer to attack, but David ran out to quickly to meet Him. Goliath seemed big and experienced, but the stone and the sling brought him down.
Don’t weigh the challenge by the size and years, but by the skills, experience and above all the God you serve. For you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.
