Pastor Paul Adefarasin is the Senior pastor of all House on the Rock Churches. He posted a powerful New year Message on  his Instagram page:

Read it below:

Prior to David challenging and defeating Goliath, he knew and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to us all.
_
His brothers and the entire army of Israel including all of Isreal’s starred Generals had the same opportunity for 40 days, but failed to recognise “Time and Chance”. _
The entire Army of Israel saw Goliath as a threat but David saw the perceived threat (Goliath) as an “OPPORTUNITY”.
_
David arrived on day 40 and immediately seized the opportunity and his story changed in less than 24 hours.
_
The whole nation of Isreal began to dance and sing – “Our king a 5 star General Saul has slain his 1000, but a teenage shepherd boy David has slain his 10,000”.
_
I desire and pray that your 2019 will be filled with many recognisable opportunities (Time and Chance ) coupled with the Faith, Grace and Courage to do the needful on time. Like David,God will make your name great…🙏 #HappyNewYear
