“Don’t tell God how big your problem is~Tell your problem how big your God is". The Biblical story of David and Goliath~ Back in biblical times, Israel was at war with the Philistine army. The Philistines had a champion warrior named Goliath. He was measured to be over 9’ tall. (Too bad basketball would not have been invented for at least another 3000 years.) His protective shield and armor were massive, and his sword alone was noted to have weighed around 40 lbs. Sadly, the entire Israeli army was scared to death of this Philistine. A young teen named David was visiting the war’s front line to deliver lunch to his older brothers. David could not understand why his brothers, and the entire army were so scared of Goliath. David, all 5’4 of him, insisted on fighting Goliath. The armies had already agreed that whichever “champion” won this single fight the other’s entire army would serve the winners. The giant laughed at David, this small champion sent to fight him. Goliath, a trained warrior with protective armor and his sword, charged toward David. Instead of running, David charged Goliath. David took his simple sling and smooth stones, loaded one, released it and saw it hit Goliath in the only place that it could have defeated him. The remainder of the Philistine army was defeated. David’s one heroic act saved an entire country. You see, David did not believe solely in his ability; he believed that it was God’s will for he and his country to be victorious. He believed in his God’s ability. He knew that his God was bigger than the problem that he faced. We can learn a lot from David’s example. When others saw an impossible situation, David saw a “faith” opportunity. When others saw a huge giant, David saw a huge target, and won. In our lives, let us focus more on trust in God. As Jesus stated, “With God, nothing is impossible.” Trust in the tools and skills that God has given you ladies; tools that help each of you excel on and off the diamond. God believes in you; we believe in you; believe in yourself.
