In our region of the country two great college football teams are squaring off this week to see who will be declared College Football Champions of 2017. Both teams are well coached and loaded with talented and gifted athletes. Both teams feel they are destined to win the crown.
The winning team will be the team that best deals with adversity, obstacles and possibly their own mistakes. I can’t resist drawing a spiritual analogy here. You are destined to be a winner! God has given you gifts and talents probably beyond what you recognize. If you are a Christian, God has made you more than a conqueror! (Romans 8:37) You are His champion!
Like these two teams that are about to play you too will have to overcome adversity, obstacles and your own mistakes. The key is embracing God’s promise to you in Philippians 4:13: you can do all things through Christ who gives you strength!
Embrace your God in 2018! Embrace your destiny! Walk like a champion. You are an overcomer!
