Champions' Breakfast
Rev Lawrence Onochie


 *1Sam 17:32*  And David said to Saul, Let no man's heart fail because of him; thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine.

So many people are meant to be mega entrepreneurs, but have remained in the confines of that job where they work; after all, they are satisfied because they are guaranteed daily bread at the end of the day, thinking only about themselves. What about the people that God already connected to your destiny, that you should be paying their bills and salaries?

You must deliberately increase and enlarge your capacity for risk. The only regret most people have at the end of their lives is the regret of not trying, not daring. It is better to try and fail than not to try at all. The bible says though the righteous falls seven times, he will rise again. How can he fall if he has not been trying?

Listen, God is more excited with those who try and fail, than those who do not try at all, that was why God loved David despite his many weaknesses. David was  daring. God was looking for who to use, but David’s brothers and several others chickened out.

When David showed up, he didn’t care why or what they were running from, in fact, he was angered in his spirit because an ordinary uncircumcised philistine was defying the army of God. When David told Saul he was going to face Goliath, Saul thought he must be stupid, a mere teenager like him surely couldn’t bring a giant down.

David said to Saul, I am a risk taker; when the bear and lion came, I came after them. If I could take out these animals, then I can take out Goliath. David stepped out and put his life on the line.

God was proud of David even though he made several mistakes. Each time David missed it; he would clean up and move on. God loved David so much He referred to him as a man after His heart. Listen, the covenant always favors the risk takers.

Fight the good fight of faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses(I Timothy 6:12).
In the journey of life, battles are not optional but mandatory. Even at birth, a child must be made to cry. At that point, he fights to overcome the force that wants to keep his lungs closed; so as to  live. Henceforth, various battles begin. 
When one becomes born again, the dynamics of the fight changes. He will still fight but this time around it is a good fight. The bible calls it the “Good Fight of Faith”. The fight is a good fight; the weaponry is also a unique one, FAITH. So a believer fights the good fight of faith, this fight is  termed a good fight because the end is determined from the beginning. Victory is guaranteed at the end. It is a fight to be won. Halleluyah!
It is like watching a replayed boxing match whose winner you already know. The same way, God is not bothered about what fight you may be involved …


"Today if you hear God’s voice speaking to you, do not harden your hearts against Him, as the people of Israel did when they rebelled against Him in the desert.” (Hebrew 3:15).
God speaks to his creation at all times. As we read the bible we see instances where God spoke to unbelievers, example; Saul,  Nebuchadnezzar etc. Jesus spoke to the wind and it obeyed him, He also spoke to the fig tree. How much more you his child. It is an error for you to say you can’t hear his voice. 
Jesus speaking in..…John 10:27 said; “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” 
As Gods' children, we have the capacity and the ability to hear His voice. But the challenge is; a lot of us do not pay attention and listen to what God is saying. Probably because we are waiting to have the Saul’s encounter of a voice speaking from heaven (Act 9:4).
God speaks to us in our spirit with a small still voice. Prophet Elijah had an encounter with this voice… II Kings 19:12 -13 “...and after the…


Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are His. And he changes the times and the seasons: He removes  Kings, and sets up Kings; He gives wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding. (Daniel 2:20-21)
This is profound words of Daniel praising God of all possibilities when he was with his friends narrating his experience to interpret and tell king Nebuchadnezzar of the dream he had. 
There is a wisdom from God that dethrones and enthrones. When you walk in the wisdom of God, you take your place in destiny; you get blessed by the same circumstances that destroy others;when  men are saying “There is a casting down”, You shall say “There is a lifting up”. The wisdom of God is superior to every other  wisdom. 
Five (5) important truths you need to know about the wisdom of God;  1. God is the source of wisdom  2. God is the fountain of wisdom  3. God is the giver of wisdom  4. God is the God of wisdom  5. God is the Author of …
