A ritual on the playground I remember easily is choosing teams to play kickball. Two "captains" would be selected for a game and they choose alternatively from an assembled group of boys hoping they won't be the last one picked! On those occasions when I was a captain I knew who I would pick first every time without fail - it was my buddy Todd. He had what every kickball team needs if they hope to win - a powerful right leg. Let's put it this way: Todd's leg had the "kick" that sent the other teams we played chasing the "ball." Then, as now, power and strength on your side provides confidence but you have to be intentional in choosing it. In the battle of life, a man who does not choose God to help lead him to victory is a fool for one simple reason - His power. Jesus wants you to pick him. He says, "Come to me." A strong God produces strong confidence and strong wins. Or not.
