FOCUS: “And when the words were heard which David spake, they rehearsed them before Saul: and he sent for him.” (1 Samuel 17: 31)

MEMORY VERSE: “I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.” (Revelation 3: 8)

When David kept speaking of how Goliath was an uncircumcised Philistine, and kept asking about what would be done for the man who kills Goliath, some men heard him and made mention of David to Saul. Saul eventually sent for David and gave David leave to attack Goliath. David came to the battlefield with capacity to defeat and slay Goliath, but he didn’t get the opportunity until men spoke to Saul and Saul gave him opportunity.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: in this season, may your capacity meet opportunity. May your divine deposits find opportunity for expression. May your greatness find platforms for expression. May what you have in you find opportunity for manifestation. God is sending you carriers of opportunity. Receive opportunities to be more. Receive opportunities to rise higher. Receive opportunities to be distinguished above your rivals.

David had already been anointed as the king of Israel in the previous chapter. He had the oil of kingship and the oil of the victory of Israel, but it was not until he got opportunity that he manifested what he had in him. I pray for you: may men grant you opportunities to manifest what God has put in you. May men give you platforms to shine forth the light that God put in you. Receive the opportunities for mega accomplishments.

Notice that Eliab was still in the battlefield when David got a chance to fight and defeat Goliath. The voices of negativity against David were still available, but could not stop his mega opportunity. Hear me as I hear the Lord: the voices of your haters will not stop your mega opportunities. No matter the community of those who do not believe in you, you will not miss your chance. Negative voices against you will not spoil your chance.

Welcome to your new season of mega opportunities. Welcome to that season where you will encounter major carriers of mega opportunities.



  • I am in my season of mega opportunities; opportunities for relevance are mine, in Jesus’ name!
