“Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.” (Jeremiah‬ ‭17‬:‭14‬ NIV)

It was the NFC Championship Football Game on January 18, 2015, between the Green Bay Packers and the defending Champions, the Seattle Seahawks. Going into overtime, Seattle QB Russell Wilson had a horrible game throwing 4 interceptions. But with the game on the line, the team still had confidence that he could pull it out. The 3rd-year quarterback then hit Jermaine Kearse on a 35-yard touchdown pass on the first possession of overtime to give the Seahawks an improbable 28-22 win and a return to the Super Bowl. 

The only way that Jeremiah could make the statement he does about God’s ability is because of his supreme confidence he had in the Almighty God, which can only be borne out of experience. Blind confidence is often a foolish gesture that can lead to failure. But to have traveled the long roads with God means that you have seen Him at work firsthand, and NOTHING can shake that confidence, even if the statistics aren’t going your way!

You will always have needs arise in your life. The key is to have a tried & tested confidence in the Almighty God, that He will come through for you, especially at the last moment! Become assured of what God can do! You are loved today!

For even Jesus’ brothers didn’t believe in him.” (John‬ ‭7‬:‭5‬ NLT)

The New York Mets were the laughing stock of baseball through the 1960s, posting the worst win/loss record in baseball history. The joke at the time was which would happen first, a winning season by the Mets or Apollo 11 landing on the moon. Well, both got there the same year in 1969. The Miracle Mets of 1969 shook the sports world by doing what no one thought could ever happen.

Sometimes we feel like that, like no one believes in us, that we really are special and can achieve in life or spiritually. Jesus knew how this felt. Personally. Both his family and His nation would largely reject Him. Yet notice that Jesus never stopped working and serving.

The day of silent skeptics in not found in the midst of our doing, but like with both Jesus and the Mets, in the completion of our work. Don’t be frustrated by people and their opinions. Trust in the One who KNOWS who you are and what He will accomplish through you! Completion will always quiet the critics! You are loved today!
