“Winner takes All”…. this phrase has been plastered on news stands and broadcasts when describing a winning game. Would you like to shout that from your front porch to the world everyday? The first and fourth quarter in a game are very important. How a team starts and how they finish. In football, a teams goal is to get points on the scoreboard early to win the game. When there are teams with a strong defensive line, the opposing teams goal is to keep going down the field and tire the defense out and continue to score early so they can make points throughout the game in order to win. The pursuit and the journey to win is just as great in the life of a believer. How does one pursue a life of being BLESSED BEYOND BELIEF? You must begin now to sow the seeds to overcome, the challenges in your life. We are in a battle everyday with our mouths and thoughts. We can suffice to say we are in a fight against our flesh. In Mark 8:34, “When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.” It is a daily WAR! If we take the tools used in football we can win. This strategy used in football can transcend to our battle. To win against the flesh we have to work against our flesh everyday. In football their tools are to run plays and practice for the game ahead. Our same strategy is to read scripture and talk to God now about our lives. Every area of our lives we must invite God in. “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” Ephesians 6:12.
While you’re driving in your car, in the shower, when you’re preparing you’re meals, and throughout your daily tasks talk to God. If you want the BLESSED BEYOND BELIEF mindset to become your life statement, just follow what they do in football. To win the battle you must start early, because if you don’t when the challenge (your flesh) comes you will not be prepared to win. Continue to fight Strong because you were created to WIN! We believe in you and we are praying for your VICTORY!
