In our Focal Scripture, Goliath queried David for coming towards him with sticks. He saw the sticks in David’s hand, but had no idea that there were stones in the bag. Goliath focused on the sticks that were never going to be used against him, but had no idea of the stones that would eventually be used to bring him down. He was distracted by the sticks, and paid no attention to the stones. Goliath was divinely distracted.
Friend, I pray for you: may the Lord distract the enemies of your destiny until you hit your target. May the enemies of your destiny be distracted from your plans until the plans become reality. May the haters of your progress be distracted until you make the progress they hate to see in you. May the opposers of your advancement be distracted from your efforts until your efforts yield the desired results.
Goliath was literally taken unawares by David’s stone because he had no idea that it was there in the first place. He lacked information about the stones, and the success of the stones took him unawares. Hear me as I hear the Lord: your ‘stones’ will take men unawares. Your success will come like a bolt out of the blues. Your greatness will shock those who had no idea of God’s plan for you. Your result will take your haters unawares.
When men see your sticks and underrate you, don’t bother announcing or explaining your stones to them. The same God that shocked the Philistines through David, with a sling and a stone, will shock the haters and mockers of your destiny with uncommon results that will keep their mouths agape. The same God that caused Goliath to lose sight of David’s stones will cause your ‘Philistines’ to lose sight of your results till they manifest.
No man will hijack your results on the way. No evil eye will see and truncate what the Lord has packaged for your life. No Goliath will see the stones that will bring your results.
