Lent 2019 – Day 15

True Champions

Wednesday 20th March

You need to persevere so that when you have done the will for God, you will receive what he has promised. Hebrews 10:36 (NIV)

I love to watch movies like Remember the Titans about great athletes and their teams where the underdogs refuse to give up and overcome impossible odds to achieve their dreams.

Sometimes their friends and families believe in them and sometimes they have to do it on their own. Some have natural talent while others have to work twice as hard to get to the top. Most of them have to lose before they start winning.

True champions – not just winners – inspire us to persevere through hardships and get to the end of the game! We know so much growth happens along the journey!

In our faith, we also need champions to inspire us to persevere! Some days it is hard to keep going. We work so hard sometimes only to fail and then have to get back up again.

We have to remember God doesn’t want us to win every race.

He only asks us to take the next step, and the next until we cross the finish line.

PRAYER: Lord, here I am. This is me in all my imperfections and I need you today. Lord don’t let me give up today – help me to persevere. I know that You are the source of my power and I want to take the next step with you. Amen.
