Locking Eyes with your Lion

2 Samuel, Chapter 23, verse 20-25

God is in the business of putting us in the right place at the right time. The right time often seems like the wrong time or place to us. That is why it’s God’s business, not ours.

We are called to look for opportunities in our problems and obstacles, and take risks to reach for God’s best. Our calling is not running away from what is wrong, we are called to chase lions. Goodness is not the absence of badness.

Lacking the guts to step out in faith and chase lions robs God of the glory that rightfully belongs to Him.

Our spiritual maturity reveals itself by seeing and seizing God-ordained opportunities.


What skills do you find the most difficult to master?

  • Defying odds?
  • Facing fears?
  • Re-framing problems?
  • Embracing uncertainty?
  • Taking risks?
  • Seizing opportunities?
  • Looking foolish?
