POWERFUL PRAISE REPORT
When God answers our prayers we should be quick to give God thanks and remember He is the one who gives us great and mighty victories in every area of our lives.
David was a young lad, who at an early age was shepherding sheep. He soon became aware there were predators seeking to destroy his flock. He learned at a very early age to trust God; and, found out He would help him to take care of his sheep.
One of our youth members, Jeremy Stover, learned as a young lad that God was interested in every area of his life; so, when he became a 4-H Club Member at the age of nine, he decided to be a participant in the 4-H BB team. He believed God could help him be an achiever just like He did David. Right away he asked his church family to pray God would make him an exceptional team member and each person on his team would excel to the best of their ability. They began to accomplish things that amazed all their peers. The very first year (2013) he won 5 medals for outstanding performance. Soon his accomplishments were being published in the Georgia Outdoor Newspaper (GON) in 2014 and 2015.
In 2014 and 2015, he again won 5 medals. In 2016, he won the State Championship at Rock Eagle, GA. During the awards ceremony they learned his team qualified for the Nationals and they could go to Rogers, Arkansas where they would be competing with teams from the entire Nation. This became an absolute first time ever the Blairsville, Union County School System would celebrate such a magnificent victory with such a young group of children.
These wins are not all fun and games, the team must be tested and they had to win on every level to become champions. Jeremy passed the written test with a perfect score of 100. For this he received a Certificate of Accomplishment.
God’s desire is for us to teach our children to rely upon Him and trust Him for victories in every area of their lives.
David was just a young lad who trusted God and was able to kill a bear and a lion that was attempting to slay the sheep he tended. This caused David to trust God in a much greater way. David learned about a giant no one could conquer. The king feared this giant, the military was afraid to go out against him with guns and the best of equipment; but, David killed him with a little sling shot and a small rock with such accuracy that he sent the rock through a tiny opening in the giant’s helmet. You can read this story in I Samuel 17:36.
WAY TO GO BOYS!!! You can truly do ALL things through God. Philippians 4:13.
