“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” – Philippians 4:13
Read : 2 Samuel 23:1-20; Ephesians 3:16; Isaiah 40:29-31
In today’s text, there is a long chronicle of King David’s men of renown. Each performed a feat so unforgettable that the Bible records each in detail. To be renowned is to be celebrated for great heroic achievements. It is only natural to run from challenges that are of gigantic proportions, but it is supernatural to face them. Always assess each obstacle as a passport to glory. For the Israelites to be delivered, Pharaoh had to be conquered; to get to the Promised Land, the Red sea had to be crossed; behind the thick walls was the promised City of Jericho and behind Goliath was David’s promotion. So, never shy away from obstacles. Obstacles are sent to stop you; distractions are sent to break your focus. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Identify and overcome your obstacles, ignore your distractions, and your recognition will come.
