PASSION REVEALS POTENTIAL – 2
TEXT:1 SAMUEL 17:41-47
MEMORY VERSE: “Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied” (1 SAMUEL 17:45).
One of the qualities that could bring out our passion is courage. Thus, passion thrives on courage to be effective. According to _Dictionary.Com,_ “Courage is the quality of being ready and willing to face negative situations involving danger or pain.”
Courage mixed with passion can make you face situations without fear. The passion to rescue Israel from the hands of the Philistine, particularly, the warlord, Goliath, made David to choose to confront the danger and intimidation of the enemy nation.
David’s passion with zeal was firmly anchored to God as he energetically challenged Goliath thus: “Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.”
David relied on the name of the Lord which is a strong refuge for believers to confront the enemy with because he had a functional relationship with Him. You must realise that the name of Jesus is above every other name, and mentioning it compels all demons to bow.
QUOTE: Passion thrives on courage.
CHALLENGE: Confront your challenges.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to overcome my challenges.
