You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine...” - 1 Samuel 17:37
David was a shepherd boy and had spent most of his time keeping his father’s sheep. Being a shepherd is not a dangerous job. But yet once he faced a lion and another instant he faced a bear. He might have thought why he was facing such problems in his life. 

God had a plan in David’s life. When a lion or a bear came and carried off a sheep, David ran behind that and killed it and saved the sheep. But he doesn’t know about God’s plan regarding his life. 

He might have thought that he was facing struggles in his life for no reason. But God was equipping him step by step giving him success against lion and bear, so that when he faces Goliath later he will face him with courage trusting God’s strength. 

There were so many army men of Israel standing and facing the challenge given by Goliath but no one had the courage to fight with him. Everyone was hiding behind but little David confronted Goliath with courage and faith upon God. 

Because he knew that the God who saved him from the earlier troubles will save him from the hands of Goliath. God honoured his faith and David killed Goliath and later became the King. 

Sometimes in your life, you might not understand why God is taking you through tough times. You might not know the plan that God has for you. 

My dear young friend, God is preparing you for a battle ahead after which you will be raised. He will be with you as you face struggles and troubles. He will strengthen you in such a way that you will not tremble even before bigger problems. When everyone around you will fear, you will stand with courage and God will raise you above everyone. 

God has a plan about your life; A plan to prosper you and give you goodness. He is a God who teaches your hands to war. He will train you to face the struggles with faith. No one can come against you all the days of your life. You will overcome the problem that you are facing right now and the problems that you will be facing in the future. God will be your strength and you will not be shaken. Jesus Christ will raise you and bless you.
