1Samuel 17:49 “And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth.”

1Samuel 17:50 “So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David.”

…From yesterday…

Saul, the brothers of David and the whole army of Israel couldn’t face Goliath because it was simply an expert’s job!

Friend, it doesn’t matter for how long you’ve been running from that Goliath, if the expert in you doesn’t show up the running game will continue.

Could it be that the issues of your life that have refused to go away are simply waiting for your expertise? Beloved, those problems harassing you have been waiting for you to gain mastery over them all along.

Friend, issues of life knows how to bow when they see an expert. The problem has been the display of timidity on your part due to your insufficient knowledge. The distinguishing factor between an expert and an ordinary learner is knowledge and training. Hear this directly from the mouth of David:

Psalms 78:72 “So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands.”

Two things David spoke strongly about here are; integrity and skillfulness. I have come to discover that many believers have integrity. They are upright, forthright and righteous.

They won’t steal, con people or change figures which are excellent qualities needed for success in life and destiny, but the major issue is that a lot of believers lacked the required skill and expertise to truly excel.

You can never excel without a combination of integrity of heart and skillfulness of hands. David knew that expertise is hinged on these two, so he took time to develop his skills in handling the sling and the stones. To become skillful you need knowledge and training.

To be continued…

Love you BiG
