Cross Church Notes: God of the Underdogs
“You have permission to believe it’s you that God wants to use in a big way.”
5 things we can learn from David:
- God wants to do something new in our lives.
- New things always come with fear. “If you are waiting for all the stars to align before you step out for God, you’re going to miss it.”
- God’s plan always look different than our plan.
- There will always be non-believers on the path to our dreams. “You have permission to break the curse and begin a new today.” “God’s not looking for the obvious choice. He’s looking for you.”
- God always chooses an underdog to change the world.
When your promise is bigger than your problems, you will chase your giants.
