AND THERE CAME A LION
One would not think that a lion was a special blessing from God but it could be God's opportunity in disguise. Every difficulty that comes our way is God's opportunity if we choose to let it be. We must recognize it as God's opportunity no matter how loud the lion's roar. The lion that came to young David was a wonderful opportunity. If he had faltered and not taken the lion by the beard and killed him he probably would never have come to be God's chosen King of Israel.
