Lessons often come hard and I would like to spare you that, and yet, not. For I know you will learn much from the difficulties you overcome; just as a parent watches his child struggle to accomplish a task, wants to stop and do it for him, but doesn’t.
Love refrains from making life easy, but Love never leaves.
I AM always here to guide you.
You will overcome, accomplish, conquer, whichever word you prefer, to describe that elation I call victory!
My children are victorious, for I empower them.
David conquered Goliath, overcame the lion, bear, yet from all appearance he was a boy–inside a man of courage–a confident man.
What was his secret?
That he practiced his slingshot?
He practiced worship; In all his ways he acknowledged Me.
“In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:6
He was built up on the inside before the event; armored with My power, wherever he went.
Lions, bears, giants–no matter, I will see you through.
Worship Me intimately–The secret to success!
“Extol the Lord our God; worship at his footstool! Holy is he!” Psalms 99:5

“Your servant has killed both lions and bears; and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be like one of them, seeing he has defiled the armies of the living God.” And David said, “The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, will deliver me fro the hand of this Philistine.” And Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you!” I Samuel 17:36-37
“Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword and with a spear and with a javelin; but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defiled.
This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you down, and cut off your head; and I will give the dead bodies of the host of the Philistines this day to the birds of the air and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel, and that all this assembly may know that the Lord saves not with sword and spear; for the battle is the Lord’s and he will give you into our hand.” I Samuel 17:45-47
“So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and struck the Philistine, and killed him; there was no sword in the hand of David.” I Samuel 17:50
