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“.

Often times you hear about a struggle involving rejections, written off, words spoken that they were not good enough but later they broke through.
