Victory comes from you, O LORD.” (Psalms‬ ‭3‬:‭8‬ NLT)

As I write this, our local high school football team, the Poyen Indians, and numerous parents are slogging through the cold rain to a second-round playoff game across the state. In our team devotion this morning, I encouraged them in playing hard and giving their best, and to be proud for achieving our school’s best record ever! But can we ask God to help us win?

In all of our battles in life, there is effort on our part, whether it’s in our marriage, overcoming addictions, or simply finding the will to press on each day. God comes alongside and helps us to overcome whatever we face. Regardless of its magnificence or urgency, if it’s important to you then it’s important to God because you are important to God!

There will probably be Christian students on the other team praying, and somebody will leave the field tonight having lost. Even losses become victories if it makes us more Christlike. So, when we pray, ask for what you will knowing that you don’t have if you don’t ask! But always finish every prayer the way Jesus did: “Father, let YOUR will be done.” If it’s so, then you will always win! You are loved! Have a great weekend! (And Go Indians!)
