Super Bowl Sunday
We should be expecting a victory every day of our lives!
We are called to be victorious!
10 The thief cometh not but to steal and to kill and to destroy. I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
The whole purpose of God sending His Son into the world was so that we could enjoy be Victorious and have life and have the abundance of life!
On this Sunday, where the two best teams in football come together to play for the world championship, people are expecting their favorite team to be victorious. They are spending a great deal of time and energy preparing for parties with families and friend to celebrate what they hope will be their teams winning victory in the super bowl game. Some people are so sure of a victory they have even wagered bets as to who they feel will win the game!
How much more should we who are on God's team expect victory? Should we the chosen of GOD be expecting God’s team to win? Is GOD counting on his elect, His chosen people to have an expectation of victory?
Then why are so many people who call themselves Christians walking around defeated before they ever enter the game? It is almost as if they are unsure who’s team they are on!
My God if you are on the winning team, you should expect a vctory!
Imagine how outraged the coach of a super bowl team would be if the players were sitting around the locker room saying things like.
I don't think we can win.
They are bigger than us
They are smarter than us.
They are better than us.
We do not have the strength to beat them.
I am scared to go out there on the field.
Can we just stay in here in the locker room?
Imagine How God would feel if some of His players were saying things like this?
Yet, there are many people who claim to be Christians that walk around every day acting like they are defeated!
They see themselves as victims.
The whole world is against them and there is nothing they can do about it!
But our play books tells us in
2 Timothy 1:7
7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
I have not given you a spirit of fear but a sound mind. ..
Imagine how our coach the Holy Spirit must feel.
He has given us power, love and sound mind, but somehow the enemy has gotten into our heads and made us afraid!
We are walking in fear and not even expecting Victory! We have not studied the play book, we have not practiced for the game!
We should know from the play book that..
1 John 4:4
But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world.
He is telling us he has already seen the outcome before we even enter the game! We have won but the enemy has us scared to come out of the locker room!
We should be expecting a victory! In every battle!
Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD.
You cannot look at the face of the enemy and fear Him,
Have faith and believe that GOD is able to deliver you from the hands of the enemy!
God says I am with you! So you have a right to expect a Victory!
How can you have GOD with you and be looking for defeat!
God must be saying ..
put that defeated person on the bench..
trade him to the other team..
we do not have losers on this team!
Expect a victory!
You are not even fighting in the battle,
You are just a cheerleader!
Your purpose is to give praise and cheer as God wins the game!
How can you not expect victory?
2 Chronicles 20:17
You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you.'"
I will fight your battle for you
Expect victory. .don't have a victim’s attitude.
Stand Firm! Look like a winner, quit crying! Quit complaining!
Stop grumbling! Take your position!
New International Version
The LORD will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the LORD your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.
The playbook has you a winner!
You should expect to be victorious!
You are going to end up on top!
Follow Gods commands and you will win!
Pay attention to the playbook!
Expect to win. .
Quit thinking like a loser .. You were a loser when I called you. .now that I have chosen you. ..you are mine. .
But now, this is what the LORD says-- he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: "Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
I drafted you when no one else wanted you on the team!
Then I paid an unspeakable price for you,
I named you and gave you your number!
You belong to me!
I Corinthians 15:
55O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 56The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 57But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
58Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
