1 Samuel 18:6-10
It happened as they were coming, when David returned from killing the Philistine,
that the women came out of all the cities of Israel, singing and dancing,
to meet King Saul, with tambourines, with joy and with musical instruments.
The women sang as they played, and said,
“Saul has slain his thousands,
And David his ten thousands.”
Then Saul became very angry, for this saying displeased him; and he said,
“They have ascribed to David ten thousands, but to me they have ascribed thousands.
Now what more can he have but the kingdom?”
Saul looked at David with suspicion from that day on.
Now it came about on the next day that an evil spirit from God
came mightily upon Saul, and he raved in the midst of the house,
while David was playing the harp with his hand, as usual;
and a spear was in Saul’s hand.
1 Samuel 24:12
May the Lord judge between you and me.
And may the Lord avenge the wrongs you have done to me,
but my hand will not touch you.
Who is the real Goliath in our life?
Maybe you are the Goliath to yourself
You are God’s wounded healer.
Speaker: Bro Alvin Barcelona
Most of our pains are self-inflicted
Many people are set up for hurts
Big Message: Set yourself up to be happy.
3 Types of Hurts
1. Serious Hurt
Hurt people hurt people.
Life is unfair, but God is good.
Run to God when you are hurt.
We don’t know why it happens but keep on running to God.
2. Small Hurts
We make these hurts big.
People are people. They are not perfect. They commit mistakes
There are some hurts that are blown up out of proportion
People hurt you.
But don’t worsen in.
Stop rewinding it n your mind.
Stop meditating on it, dwelling on it,
and being fixated on it.
Acknowledge it. Accept it.
But stop making it your little god. Move on.
3. Self Hurts
When do we hurt ourselves?
a. When we keep on repeating our mistakes
Winners make new mistakes
Losers makes the same mistake
People don’t get what they deserve.
They get what they think they deserve
If you see yourself as garbage,
you settle for garbage.
You are the most precious being in the eyes of God.
So treat yourself as one.
b. When we replay our hurts
Stop worshiping your hurt
Are you a hurt collector?
You replay hurt by looking for similar hurt
When someone hurts you, you think all will hurt you
Jesus wept when his friend Lazarus died.
But after that He raised him back to life.
Jesus agonized in the garden.
After that, he moved on.
You acknowledge hurts. Then you recover.
Beyond that, it’s already self-inflicted.
Set yourself up to be happy
Happy despite the pain
Things happen. There will be people who will commit mistakes
Let it go.
It’s OK to get angry. You are human. Just don’t prolong your anger.
Pain will come — Feel the pain — Let go
Let it go, let it flow, let God flow through you.
Think of how you felt or are feeling when you receive God’s love
Swim in God’s love
Think of people who made you happy
Think of God’s story in you
