FAITH REWARDS

No automatic alt text available.
Faith Has A Price To Pay And A Prize To Receive. Faith Always Rewards.

"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? (Verse 26) ... And the men of Israel said,..... 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.(verse 25). - I Sam.17:25-26

Don't Wait For The Multitudes To Join You When It Is Time To Take Key Steps In Life. When God Is On Your Side, You Are The MAJORITY. You Are On The Winning Side.

"And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose, and came and drew nigh to meet David, that David hasted, and ran toward the..Philistine. And David ...took ...a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, ....and he fell upon his face to the earth." - I Sam.17:48-49

LIVING BY FAITH DOES NOT MEAN LIVING OR ACTING CARELESSLY: IT MEANS MAKING CAREFUL CHOICES

David A Great Man of Faith Had To Carefully Choose Five Smooth Stones Before Facing Goliath In A Battle: 

Don't Engage Yourself In A Battle, A Business, A Marriage etc When You Are Not Properly Prepared, Regardless of The Level of Your Faith.

"And he (David) took his staff in his hand, and chose him five smooth stones out of the brook, and put them in a shepherd's bag......; and his sling was in his hand: and he drew near to the Philistine. " - I Sam.17:40

FAITH DOES NOT WAIT FOR ENCOURAGEMENT


Don't Wait For People To Encourage You To Take Steps To Better Your Life: David Was Discouraged By His Own Elder Brother.

"And David spake...saying, What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine? .......And Eliab his eldest brother heard when he spake..; and Eliab's anger was kindled against David, and he said, Why camest thou down hither? .....I know thy pride, and the naughtiness of thine heart; for thou art come down to .....see the battle.!" - I Sam.17:26,28

BE AFRAID, VERY AFRAID OF THE ENEMY WITHIN: NOT THE ONE WITHOUT

Image may contain: text
The Enemy Without Cannot Hurt You Because He Is Also Afraid of You: He Does Not Know Your Strength Nor Your Weaknesses.

"For it was not an enemy that reproached me; ...: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; ....But it was thou, a man mine equal, .... and mine acquaintance. We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company." -Ps.55:12-14

A MAN OF FAITH DOES NOT USE UNPROVEN WEAPONS.


Faith Is Superior To Innovation and Technology: A Man of Faith Will Not Use Untested Weapons Simply Because It is "The In Thing".

"And Saul armed David with his armour, ...And David...assayed to go; for he had not proved it. And David said unto Saul, I cannot go with these; for I have not proved them. And David put them off him. ...and chose him five smooth stones...and put them in a shepherd's bag.....and his sling .....and he drew near to the Philistine." - I Sam.17:38-40

SMALL ASSIGNMENTS THAT LEAD TO BIG OPPORTUNITIES

 
David Was Sent On A Simple Errand To Delivery Lunch To His Brothers In The Battle Field;
God Turned That Into An Opportunity To Launch Him To Fame And Royalty. 

There Is FAME and ROYALTY Hidden in Every Assignment!!

"And Jesse said to David his son, "Take for your brothers an ephah of this parched grain, and these ten loaves, and carry them quickly to the camp to your brothers ..... 
So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and struck the Philistine, and killed him;" - I sam.17:17, 50 (RSV)
