Last night's episode was about a Splatball game (like baseball but with a twist, the balls have some yukky things inside like peanut butter, barbeque sauce, strawberry jam, etc...) and the main characters are to have a nose-to-knee Splatball game with the new Giant Champions.
Chip, the leader and the Splatball captain tried to spy on their opponents to see the so called giant player the others are talking about using his very own pet dog. Well, to make it quite short. They were caught spying and eventually lead to a very tight situation with the so-called giant.
Game came and everytime the giant player plays, they get into trouble since he always hits homerun and is a very good pitcher as well. Their new player, who is just a pint-sized gem eventually made a lot of scores and of course their captain Chip also and was able to win the game with the help of their coach who is eventually the stone that David used to kill Goliath the giant with the help of God. And this story inspired Chip and the others and made their way through victory with the help of their faith to God.
The story really got me. I started reflecting on My Own Giants. Was I able to conquer them? or was I cowering in fear?
Sometimes we try to cheat on our situation to be victorious but we only end up on a much worst situation than before. Facing life's giant is really something. I remembered a friend, when I tried to ask for an advice. He made a good advice but the advice is not something that I really wanted to hear or something I don't agree with. I thought, "Yeah right! You can say that because you're not in my situation". I felt bad realizing what I just did or thought. I wasn't really asking advice that time maybe, I was asking for someone who would agree with what I had in mind, so it's like cheating. Finding people who would agree on the wrong thing you are about to do doesn't justify that it is the right way.
He will enable us to do the task He gave us or called us to do.
My point, even the giants that went our way are no match for the power of God and what he can make us do. I'm not saying you can walk on water as Peter did but if it pleases God to do whatever you are thinking of doing, God will certainly make sure you are able to achieve it.
What we fail to see is what Peter failed to see as well while walking on the water. Peter got afraid when he felt the strong wind, he forgot Jesus is just in front of him, the one who made him able to walk on water.
When facing our Giants, don't forget that God is in front of us. Keep our eyes on him so we won't lose our focus. Let us walk by faith and not by sight. - 2 Corinthians 5:7
