// Read: I Samuel 17:22-24 //
22 David left his things with the keeper of supplies, ran to the battle lines and asked his brothers how they were. 23 As he was talking with them, Goliath, the Philistine champion from Gath, stepped out from his lines and shouted his usual defiance, and David heard it. 24 Whenever the Israelites saw the man, they all fled from him in great fear.
The following factors can hinder somebody to start anything good in life as contained in the story of David and Goliath.
i. Fear – Fear of taking risk
ii. Consideration of Limitation – Like Philip condemning the small boy’s food
iii. Unwillingness to quit familiar ground – Like Peter who refused to kill and eat in the revelation of Acts 10:11-16
iv. Procrastination and Excuses – Like the one that told Jesus let me go and bury my dead first. Luke 9:59-60
What are the things that you are supposed to have started?
PRAYER: Pray against these hindrances in your life.
