BIBLE TEXT: 1 Samuel 17:24-26

24 And all the men of Israel, when they saw the man, fled from him, and were sore afraid.

25 And the men of Israel said, Have ye seen this man that is come up? surely to defy Israel is he come up: and it shall be, that the man who killeth him, the king will enrich him with great riches, and will give him his daughter, and make his father’s house free in Israel.

26 And David spake to the men that stood by him, saying, What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine, and taketh away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?



When Goliath came to challenge the Israelites on the battlefield, he registered himself as a huge terror and took the form of a big problem. Though he came as a mighty obstacle, he turned into a mighty door of opportunity.

During the global lockdown, many businesses folded up because they couldn’t function without physical customers, however, online businesses thrived because some business owners adapted technology to their businesses. For them, an unprecedented problem became a profit-making opportunity. The major thing here is that your perception of a problem determines what you get out of it, whether woes or blessings.

Beloved, a situation will only respond to the way you perceive and address it. David became a national hero and son-in-law to the king because He wasn’t intimidated by Goliath. He aligned with God, and He made him victorious. Therefore, I charge you today to always have a positive attitude towards situations; never see yourself as a victim because you are victorious through Christ.


Father, open my eyes to see the blessings in any challenge I’m faced with right now.

HYMN 7 – Just As I Am, Without One Plea

  1. Just as I am, without one plea,
    But that Thy blood was shed for me
    And that Thou bidst me come to Thee,
    Oh Lamb of God I come, I come.
  2. Just as I am, and waiting not
    To rid my soul of one dark blot
    To Thee, whose blood can cleanse each spot
    Oh Lamb of God I come, I come.
  3. Just as I am though tossed about,
    With many a conflict, many a doubt,
    Fighting’s and fears within, without,
    Oh Lamb of God I come, I come.
  4. Just as I am poor, wretched, blind,
    Sight, riches, healing of the mind
    Yea, all I need, in Thee to find
    Oh Lamb of God I come, I come.
