When the Philistines heard that David had been anointed king over all Israel, all the Philistines went up to search for David. But David heard of it and went out against them. 1 Chronicles 14:8
Sometimes you have to approach a problem head-on…not waiting until it finds you.
Have you got a problem staring you in the face? Is there a conversation you know you need to have, but you’re afraid of the response of the other person? Do you need to challenge a friend? Do you need to admit your marriage is in trouble? Are you struggling with some difficult business decisions?
You can ignore it.
You can hope it goes away.
You may even be able to run from it…for a while.
Eventually, most problems have a way of surfacing again.
My advice, follow the example of King David. Attack your problems before they attack you.
You’ll have more control on offense than on defense.
What problem do you need to face today?
