Author Jenny Han once wrote, "Victory is a thousand times sweeter when you're the underdog". We all know she's right, even for those who are merely witnessing the event. Who doesn't love a good underdog story? Some of you will never forget watching the "Miracle on Ice" take place right on your old TV screen. In my lifetime, the biggest upset was probably Buster Douglas knocking out "Iron" Mike Tyson. There have been countless great upsets during March Madness, and there's always the shocker of the Philadelphia Eagles finally lucking their way into a Super Bowl title a few years ago. In just about every upset, the common denominator is that the favorite didn't take the underdog seriously. The coaches will always tell you they did, but sometimes the performance shows that they thought it'd be a walk in the park and got stunned by the fighting spirit of the underdog. The greatest underdog story in the Old Testament comes from one of our heroes of the faith, David. He took down the giant Goliath with just a sling and a single stone, but his far more difficult battles actually came before that moment. This week at Friendship, we'll dig into this story to see how God is revealed through "Victorious Underdogs". The enemy Satan did everything he could to make David quit with discouragement and lies, and he'll do the same with us. But we must overcome him by the power of the Lord and with our trust and focus on Him. Join us this weekend to face your giants of fear and doubt head on so you can experience the victory of the Lord!
