Shield Of Defense Is Present, Evans Olang

Psalm 3:3, “For thou O Lord are a shield for me, the glory and the lifter of my head”

After talking to different people and looking at my life, I see that we are all fighting battles. This is not an occasional thing but a daily thing. It may be fought at different degrees and levels but the fact remains we are battling. Often times I sit and wonder whether what I am battling will ever come to an end. At times I feel like there is victory and then right after getting victory in one battle, another surfaces and the battle continues. If we could avoid battles, believe me, I would be the first one to avoid them yet we are not called to avoid but face them. I believe you can survive battles without offensive weapons as long as you have defensive weapons. If you just have the offensive weapons, I guarantee you will be exposed to more dangers because offensive will tackle mostly what you see while defensive tackles all corners seen and unseen.

Give Me A Chance, Part 3of3, Evans Olang

1Samuel 17:1-58, “Then he took his staff in his hand; and chose for himself five smooth stones from the brook…”

Here was a man with one cry, “give me a chance”, 1Samuel 17:32, “Then David said to Saul, “Let no man’s heart fail because of him; your servant will go and fight with the Philistine“. David made up his mind to please the Father. Everyone including the king did not feel David was ready for he was young, inexperienced, no training on war, but God readied him for this battle. Him and God were majority. Continue reading “Give Me A Chance, Part 3of3, Evans Olang”

Give Me A Chance, Part 2of3, Evans Olang

1Samuel 17:1-58, “Then he took his staff in his hand; and chose for himself five smooth stones from the brook…”

The bible is interesting in the sense that it could take time and dwell on something, fully describing it. Here is an example, 1Samuel 17:4, “And a champion went out from the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath from Gath, whose height was six cubits and spans” through vs. 7 the bible describes nothing but how the giant was dressed for battle. The bible wants us to see something about this man. Just reading how equipped he was, I can see why the Israelites were afraid of him. This is no ordinary sizable man. I wondered why the bible wouldn’t just say he was a giant and a champion. I believe the Lord wants us to know that our enemy is not a wimp as many may think. He is prepared for you and I at any given moment. Goliath was more qualified, trained, prepared, ready, equipped, eloquent, developed, sophisticated, protected, confident, threatening and a fighter, what chance did David have? All the trained men, who have all that it takes to battle could not face the giant. I even wondered why the bible did not even take time to describe how Saul was dressed for the battle.

Give Me A Chance, Part 1of3, Evans Olang

1Samuel 17:1-58, “Then he took his staff in his hand; and chose for himself give smooth stones from the brook…”

We often run into people with hidden potentials yet to be discovered. In the entertainment industry, people continue to be discovered because of their talents. I have come across stories of people sharing their humble beginnings. Often times you hear about a struggle involving rejections, written off, words spoken that they were not good enough but later they broke through. Continue reading “Give Me A Chance, Part 1of3, Evans Olang”

The Harp VS The Javelin , Pastor Phil Sessa

1Samuel 18:10-12, “And it came to pass on the morrow, that the evil spirit from God came upon Saul, and he prophesied in the midst of the house: and David played with his hand, as at other times: and there was a javelin in Saul’s hand. And Saul cast the javelin; for he said, I will smite David even to the wall with it. And David avoided out of his presence twice. And Saul was afraid of David, because the LORD was with him, and was departed from Saul.”

It has been said “the pen is mightier than the sword.” However, few may know that Edward George Bulwer Lytton (1803-1873), an English novelist, wrote this for the first time in 1839. He wrote, “Beneath the rule of men entirely great, the pen is mightier than the sword.” In the natural this doesn’t make sense, but there are great spiritual truths to be learned in principal. In the days of David, King Saul’s jealousy toward David grew to a place of attempted murder. Continue reading “The Harp VS The Javelin , Pastor Phil Sessa”
