The Lord has announced his victory and has revealed his righteousness to every nation! Psalm 97:2
The Champ Is Here
I have always been a big fan of boxing. While the fights are great, that is not my favorite part of boxing. My favorite part of boxing is the lead up to the fight, or what they call selling the fight. You see to get people interested in a boxing match it is typical that the fighters will travel the country and sometimes the world, promoting the match that is coming up. They say that it will be the fight of the century, every time. They say that it will be like no fight before it or after it, every time. They also say if you miss this one you will regret it, every time. The idea is to get the interest so high in the fight that you will make it appointment television. But that is not the greatest part of the lead up to the fight.
The greatest part of the lead up to the fight is the boxer that declares that he is going to win. The best at doing this was Muhammad Ali. Ali, in the lead up to any fight, would proclaim that his victory was an assured fact that we were all just waiting to see. He would tell people how he was going to win. He would tell people when he was going to win. He would tell his opponent that he had no chance what so ever of beating him and should just not show up. Why did Ali do this you might ask. He did it because he was the greatest and he wanted to make sure everyone knew it. He did it because he knew who he was and he wanted to make sure that there was no mistaking who was the best and who was going to win.
Friends, when you are the greatest, you are allowed to shout it from the rooftops. That is why our God can announce his victory before, during and after any situation in life. Our God is the undisputed champ, and no matter what fight you are in, if He’s in it with you, He will win and so will you. So take heart, next time you are facing a fight or a challenge you can announce victory from the beginning because your God walks with you and He is the victor. So no matter what you are facing you can announce, THE CHAMP IS HERE!
