Topic: The Heart of Compassion
SCRIPTURE: And David spake to the men that stood by him, saying, What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine, and taketh away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God? 1 Samuel 17:26
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: A heart of a deliverer makes you to be passionate after the welfare of people.
MESSAGE: In our previous studies, we have been highlighting the secrets of David and why God anointed him. We saw that passion for God’s presence and a fighter’s spirit are some of the reasons he was anointed by God.
Additionally, the heart of compassion was another secret and reason God anointed David.

David rescued Israel from the hands of Goliath and the Philistines because of his compassionate heart; a heart of a deliverer (1 Samuel 17:26).
A heart of a deliverer makes you to be passionate about the welfare of people. It makes you to be passionate about rescuing people; when you see people suffering or are in pains, it hurts you. You are moved when people are under the bondage of poverty and other afflictions of the enemy.
The heart of a deliverer made Jesus to go about doing good and healing all manner of sicknesses and delivering the oppressed of the devil (Acts 10:38).
