A Word every day to get you on your way!
Here is the Daily Dose for Monday, June 17, 2019.
My heart is confident in you, O God; no wonder I can sing your praises with all my heart! Psalm 108:1
My best friend from high school is a huge New England Patriots fan. Since we are both from New York, I have no idea how he became a Patriots fan, but he is. For better or worse he rides and dies with the exploits of the Patriots. As a New York Giants fan, the team that beat the Patriots twice in the Super Bowl, he and I have a friendly rivalry that plays itself out on text and social media every football season. This friendly rivalry had its most dramatic moment during Super Bowl LI when the Patriots played the Atlanta Falcons.
You see during Super Bowl LI the Falcons were well ahead of the Patriots at half time of the game. Because I get no greater joy than watching the Patriots lose and rubbing it in to my friend, I gave him a call at half time to gloat. I will never forget what he said to me as I taunted him. He calmly said, “We still have Tommy. We’ll be fine.” Mind you; they were down 21-3 at the time and not playing well, but he still believed. If you’re a football fan, you know what happened next. Tommy and the Patriots had the most epic comeback in Super Bowl history, and I got a phone call, two words, “Told You.” You see, he had seen Tommy win before and he was confident Tommy could do it again because of what he knew Tommy could do.
Friends, when, you believe in God, you can approach the world with the same confidence that my friend approached the Super Bowl. You see, for the believer, they know what God has done, and have full faith in what God can do. When you put your confidence in God, the score doesn’t matter, the odds don’t matter and the challenges don’t matter because you know what your God can do. So this week, stand tall, walk with confidence and continue to put your faith in God and when challenges come just say, “I’ll be fine. God’s got this.” Then at the end tell your challenge “Told You.”
