We normally focus on what we donâ€™t have, as opposed to what we do have. We focus on how big our obstacles are, and how bad the economy is etc. â€œI donâ€™t have the connections. Iâ€™ve got this problem, but I donâ€™t have anybody to help me. Iâ€™ve got this dream, but I donâ€™t have the resources.â€ Here is the truth: everything you need to fulfill your destiny is within reach. God will always use something thatâ€™s close to you. It may not look extraordinary, but you have what it takes to fulfill your destiny.
Like when David faced the giant, Goliath, all he had was a slingshot and five stones. It looked ordinary. He could have thought, â€œIâ€™m not going to face Goliath. That would be foolish. I donâ€™t have a chance.â€ No, David knew that with God on his side, those ordinary stones would be exactly what he needed. Sure enough, David defeated Goliath with what he had and made history.
Today, remember, victory isnâ€™t about what you have, itâ€™s about Godâ€™s anointing on what you have. With God on your side, all things are possible! Focus on Him and what He has given you. God can do great things in your life because He has placed extraordinary things in you, use them today.
â€œSo David triumphed over the Philistine with a sling and a tstone; without a sword in his hand he struck down the Philistine and killed him.â€ (1 Samuel 17:50, NIV)
Yahweh, thank You for equipping me for success and victory in this life. Help me to clearly see the opportunities, connections and resources You have ordained for me. I trust that with You, all things are possible, in Christâ€™ name! Amen.
