From Pain To Pleasure

17th November 2020

Scripture Reading: 1 Samuel 17: 1-53


Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God.” (1 Samuel 17: 36)

In describing Goliath, David made reference to the covenant of circumcision. He called Goliath an uncircumcised Philistine. David described Goliath as one who did not go through the process of circumcision. The process of circumcision is one that often leaves a child in pain for several days. So David was simply reminding Goliath that he (David) had gone through a pain that Goliath did not go through. David seemed to infer that by his pain, victory was sure over Goliath.

Friend, by reason of every pain you have been through in time past, I decree, your season of victory is here. The pains of the past will usher you into a new season of celebration. The losses of yesterday will open the doors for huge gains today. The opportunities you missed in time past will give way to an abundance of opportunities now. The delays and stagnation of the past will make way for divine speed to hold sway in your life.

The pain that David went through in the place of circumcision became a platform for him to enjoy the pleasure of defeating the same Goliath that held the armies of Israel to ransom. The pain of the past became a platform for pleasure. Hear me as I hear the Lord: every pain you faced in time past shall give way to pleasure. For every pain, you encountered in time past, receive divine pleasure and divine compensation.

For everything that was done to you that broke your heart, there shall be restoration with compensation. For your shame in time past, God will grant you a double portion. For all the years the locust has eaten in your life, the Lord is restoring with huge compensation. For all the misfortunes you have been through, the Lord will flood your life with good fortunes that will cause celebrations and congratulations to erupt on all sides.

You will look for whatever caused you pain and you will not find it. Get set for pleasure that will come forth from your pain. Get set for restoration with compensation.


I receive pleasure for all my pain, in Jesus’ name!
