“And, In This Corner…”

Ding…Ding…Ding!

I can imagine the ring announcer introducing the two combatants like this the day it all went down:

“In this corner weighing 560 pounds…(No, not me!)…with a record of 460 wins and zero losses…the phenom of the Philistines…the super heavyweight champion of Gath…ladies and gentlemen…The undisputed, undefeated Go-li-ath!!!…and in this corner…it’s…it’s…it’s… just… David?”

Yup. Just David. Have you ever felt like that? Has anyone ever told you, “Oh, it’s just you. I thought it was somebody important.”

And, when the Bible talks of the “least of these,” 1 do you categorize yourself in that bunch?

I remember I was at this camp in Florida and somebody asked if I could take a picture. I said, “Sure” and posed for the camera like a super-sized super model.

Tyra Banks would’ve been proud! All of a sudden, the person with the camera said, “You don’t understand… We don’t want a picture of you, we want you to take it of us.”

I felt real small. Come to think of it, that’s the only time in my life that I’ve ever felt small. All the other times I feel extra, extra, extra large. Ha!

I also remember a time, Pastor Manny Cruz asked me if I could preach at the same venue as Jose Rojas & Alejandro Bullon! What? Who am I? And, I was real humbled the time I preached on the same pulpit that Ellen G. White used at Atlantic Union College.

But, you know what? I have seen God use me, too! I just got my GED the other day, at the age of thirty six, yet I have preach to thousands.
And, I’ve been at a Federal Prison where an ex-murderer approached me and said she gave her life to God because of my radio ministry.
And all the glory goes to God, of course. But, I’m telling you this because if God can use a punk like me, and use David to kill a giant, he could definitely use you! You are not insignificant. You are worth the blood of a God!

Just think, you’re here not by chance, but by God’s choosing… He has allowed you to be here at this time in history to fulfill His special purpose for this generation.2

So, always remember, in your corner, you are in the company of He who created the heavens and earth! Giants beware!
