MEMORY VERSE: “Behold thou desireth truth in the inward part and in
the hidden part thou shall make me to know wisdom”.
BIBLE PASSAGE: Daniel 2:1-5, 12-20
Last week we examined Jesus Christ as the greatest champion. We also
learnt that He became a champion to make you one also if you can
accept Him as Lord and Saviour and follow Him. Today’s topic will focus
on the strength and wisdom of a champion.
1. THE STRENGTH OF A DIVINE CHAMPION
2. THE WISDOM OF A DIVINE CHAMPION
THE STRENGTH OF A DIVINE CHAMPION
The divine champion receives divine strengthening and has nothing to
fear (Psalm 27:1). Human strength often fails (1 Samuel 2:9). The divine
champion is strengthened by God (1Kings 19:5-7). The shame,
reproaches, troubles, failures, sickness that plague men will be crushed
by a divine champion because he is able to do the extraordinary
(2 Corinthians 12:10). Good examples are Hannah, David, Daniel.
THE WISDOM OF A DIVINE CHAMPION
Divine champions usually have special wisdom by which they become
stars (Daniel 2:20-21). Wisdom makes way for progress and success
(Ecclesiastes 10:10; 1 Samuel 3:19; Genesis 41:33-41). He is also God’s
representative that will be used by God to bless people (Genesis 14:16;
2 Kings 2:19-22). God will always honour and back a divine champion (1
Kings 18:36-38; Daniel 3:16-18, 24-26).
However, sin can destroy a careless divine champion and rob him of his
glorious victory (Judges 16:28-30).
To remain a divine champion, you must run away from every trace of
sin (Proverbs 14:34).
