And there came a lion. I Samuel 17:34 (KJV)
“Normally we think of a lion not as a special blessing from the Lord but only as a reason for alarm. Yet the lion was God’s opportunity in disguise. Every difficulty and every temptation that comes our way, if we receive it correctly, is God’s opportunity. When a “lion” comes to your life, recognize it has an opportunity for the Lord, no matter how fierce it may outwardly seem.”- C.H.P. Streams in the Desert.
