A Perfect Example of Childlike Faith

In 1957 there were a group of young boys who loved to play baseball. Due to several different events, they truly believed that God had called them to play. Every step of their way, will all of the plans, they moved forward ONLY after seeking God’s blessing.

I am speaking about the true story that lead to the recent movie “The Perfect Game.” These boys, against all odds, with their faith securely planted in God’s grace, went forward to cross over from Mexico to take the Little League by storm. The example I wish to use from them is their tenacity for being sure to have God’s blessing FIRST before proceeding. The priest who had been traveling with them had to return to Mexico, they were ready to play yet refused because they had not sought God yet that day. The other team wished to have them forfeit, but God is greater than man, and the game was held up until a minister came and read to them their team Psalm – 108 – they then felt God’s blessing upon their game, and went out to win yet again.

Psalm 108 starts with praise to God, declaring that we will praise God among the nations, that we recognize His love for us, and ends with, “With God we will gain the victory, and He will trample down our enemies.” Vs 13

Oh, that we could have their faith! Determine within ourselves not to move one step forward into even the things we KNOW He has called us to do, UNTIL we praise Him, recognize His love for us, and realize that only with Him is victory!

Something to contemplate today . . . I know I am.

Don't ever change yourself to impress someone, cause they should be impressed that you don't change to please others -- When you are going through something hard and wonder where God is, always remember that the teacher is always quiet during a test --- Unknown
