David and Goliath       10-20-2015

  • I played for a State Championship Team. A team that lost only 1 game in two years.
    • I know that even State Championship teams face the same issues as you do every game.
    • Everyone is gunning for you – to knock you off your high horse
      • Yes, I played for the Mighty Poca Dots
      • pocadots
    • You know that you are high school students just like the opposing teams

David and Goliath

  • Goliath was the champion of the Philistine army
    • He was the baddest of the baddest fighter they had
    • Goliath was THERE TO FIGHT
      • He was a warrior
      • He was huge
      • He was well armed
      • He was well trained – PREPARED
      • He was expected to win
        • By his army
        • Unfortunately, by the Army of Israel
          • No one wanted to go face him
          • They were ready to give up without a fight
        • David was a shepherd boy
          • He was there to deliver food
          • He was small
          • He was young
          • He had no expectation of fighting when he arrived.

BUT

  • David was motivated by the low expectations of the Army of Israel
  • David had FAITH
    • He believed in God
      • Audience of ONE
      • His protection and Deliverer
    • Through FAITH David believed in himself
  • David had a STRONG FOUNDATION
    • GROWING EXPERIENCE
      • He had fought lions
      • He had fought bears
        • And HE HAD WON
      • David had FOCUS
        • He abandoned any tool, equipment, idea that may have distracted him
          • The King tried to distract him with bad ideas
            • Wear my armor
            • Fight for a human reward
          • The crowd doubted his abilities
          • The giant taunted him
        • He focused on the FIGHT at hand
        • One rock – One shot
        • David focused on a singular task
      • David moved FORWARD with BOLDNESS
        • He ran TOWARD the Giant
        • He used every talent and tool God had given him
        • He found GREAT VICTORY

Goliath and the Philistine Army had EVERY VALID EXPECTATION OF VICTORY

BUT

Goliath had NEVER faced off with a GIANT KILLER before.

Goliath had never faced DAVID

Edinburg Vela has NEVER faced this team Mighty Rattlers before either!

Are the RIO GRANDE CITY RATTLERS ready to see a GIANT FALL?

Are you READY TO BE GIANT KILLERS?

Take to the FIELD OF HONOR Thursday with

FAITH

FOUNDATION

FOCUS

Always moving FORWARD
