Moving forward by taking opportunity

“And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose, and came and drew nigh to meet David, that David hasted, and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine” (1Samuel 17: 48).

Goliath was a giant with terrifying stature. He was a mighty and an experienced warrior of an outstanding record. David, however, was a teenager who had never fought a battle. He was a lad whose faith in God wrote his name in the platter of gold. He took chance and made a victorious advance to meet Goliath that nobody in Israel could fight. David’s victory was a result of faith to take chance in spite of seemingly impossible situation. No significant achievement can be made by taking small risks on insignificant issues of life.

Your success depends on how far you can stretch yourself to reach out to your goals. You cannot realize an uncommon achievement by attempting common tasks. The greater the goals you set for success, the better for exceptional achievement. It is better to aim high and take risks to climb up to the pinnacle of success. The bottom is reserved for mediocre while the top is meant for people who dare to take chances. You can soar higher day by day on the eagle’s wings of success till you reach the top if you will take chances.

Challenge: Relaxation in the safe zone is mediocrity

Prayer: Dear lord, give me courage to make advances by faith.
