Friday Night Football
Posted: November 15, 2017
Football games are so fun! The crowd is always full of energy, and cheers wildly with excitement when their team successfully completes a long pass, catches an interception or makes a sweet touchdown.
I’ll never forget my senior year of high school when our team made the winning touchdown to clinch the state championship from our biggest rival. My friends and I went crazy, shouting with joy because of the awesome victory for our team! It was amazing! Nothing could take away the feeling in that moment, and all we wanted to do was squeal with excitement as we talked over and over about how awesome the game was and how sweet the victory!
While it’s easy to get that excited over football, do we get that excited over seeing the Lord’s victory in the battles of our lives? We should be shouting for joy and celebrating our ultimate victory through Christ because of what he did for us on the cross!
So the next time you experience joy in Christ or remember his victory on the cross, raise your voice like it’s Friday night football!
“Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous:
‘The Lord’s right hand has done mighty things! The Lord’s right hand is lifted high; the Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!’”
- Psalm 118:15-17 NIV
Lord, thank you for the joy and victory we have in you. Help us to raise our voice in excitement, shouting praise to you for all the awesome things you’ve done and for your sweet victory. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
