One of the worst mistakes you can make in a team sport is to try to predict the outcome of a game before it’s even begun. Over-confidence can lead you right down the path to defeat. I couldn’t have seen this any more clearly than during the 2014 Superbowl this past Sunday. All week I’ve been hearing how Peyton Manning’s high powered offense was going to pick apart the Seahawks defense. What we all saw was just the opposite as the Seahawks dominated the game in one of the most lop-sided wins in Super Bowl history.
In sports, it’s almost never certain what the outcome of a game will be. However, in Christ we know we always have the victory. Faith tells us to call things that are unseen as though they are seen. Basically, God wants us to celebrate the victory before the game has even started! We can rest in Christ’s perfect and complete work on the cross. Our sins are forgiven, our lives are blessed and we have a purpose to accomplish that no Devil can stop. I wrote the following below to remind myself of how “Life’s Game” is very different from the “Game of Grace“.
