“Now I know the Lord saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven with the saving strength of His right hand.” (Psalm 20:6)
COMMENT: Yes Folks, I realize that the football season is over, but I just heard a radio message from Pastor Tony Evans that can’t wait until fall. So just imagine yourself to be in the Southern Hemisphere where the seasons are just the opposite of ours. During a football game we often see the team’s quarterback with earphones on having a conversation with someone. A football novice might wonder: “What’s going on? Doesn’t this guy realize how important he is to the team and that he really should be paying attention to ways of winning the game instead of chit-chatting with a friend?” Well, unbeknownst to that novice, the conversation the player is having is vitally important to the ultimate success of the team. You see, the Offensive Coordinator is in a booth high about the field where he has an excellent view of everything and he is giving the quarterback the strategy he should use for success. In a like manner, we Christians should be continually listening to our Heavenly Father by reading His Word and having two-way conversations with Him in prayer. He knows how we can accomplish that abundant life Jesus promised us in John 10:10.
