Fumbling the ball in football looks horrible, but it’s not the end of the game. Just like real life, you will get the ball back, and another chance to run the play.
Isaiah 40:31 But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
When life treats you badly, and you drop the ball, remember that the game is not over, and there are still quarters left to play. The offensive coach calls a trick play that gets the ball into the hands of your best receiver, and just like that you are back in the game, taking it down to the wire for the win.
Don’t let your life fumbles define your future, just like your coach who sends you back into the game knowing you’ve ran this play in practice many times, that’s how your faith in Jesus Christ works.
Philippians 4:13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
With Christ the clock hasn’t expired, and there is still enough time for you to get back in the game. You know the playbook like the back of your hand, and there is no need to panic. Looking at the offensive playbook is a reminder that you are not alone, and that’s exactly how the word of God works. It has all the plays, X’s and O’s, and all the pit falls that you should avoid.
All you need to do is to get back into position, execute the play, use your faith, and know that God is the coach that never gives up on his team!
Psalm 37: 23-24 The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand
