Little Me, Big You
"David left his things with the keeper of supplies, ran to the battle lines and asked his brothers how they were. As he was talking with them, Goliath, the Philistine champion from Gath, stepped out from his lines and shouted his usual defiance, and David heard it. Whenever the Israelites saw the man, they all fled from him in great fear." - 1 Samuel 17:22-24
Most people who see a person twice his or her size will begin to create an image of defeat before the game begins. Most sports announcers will bet the odds against an inexperienced team verses a team that has won championships. Why? It’s something about experience which brings patience. Patience understands the race is not always won by the athlete who is the fastest, tallest or most talented. It is about the person who understands how to turn a weakness into strength as a result of practice with the team and without.
David was a young boy about to fight a giant named Goliath, a champion. Goliath had the Philistine army on his team. David had experience fighting against animals and knowing that his GOD would protect him. He had an image of VICTORY. He won. He became famous for taking down the big giant.
