It’s been 14 years since “Facing the Giants” debuted, but the life lessons taught through the movie are still relevant today.
A friend and co-worker quoted the “prepare for rain” scene recently, and I’ve used it a few times since she mentioned it.
Coach Taylor: “I prayed so hard, but I still can’t seem to win.”
Mr. Bridges: “I heard of a story of two farmers praying to God for rain to come. Both prayed, but only one prepared the land. Who do you think trusted God more to send the rain?”
Mr. Bridges is the character who had consistently walked the halls of the school praying over the students’ lockers for six years — his own preparing for rain season.
And then he found himself encouraging and challenging the discouraged football coach, which changed a lot of lives in the end.
We can’t predict exactly how God will use us, and we certainly won’t know who He will put in our path day in and day out. But we can prepare so we are ready when He puts us in the game.
How will you prepare for rain?
