How to win when it looks like you’ve lost
Today I want to talk to you about how to win when it looks like you’ve already lost. Sometimes you’re in a fight, but there are other times when it looks like the fight is over, all is lost. Now what? What do you do when you’re losing, and it’s 4th down, and the clock is at zero – a death in a relationship, or a marriage, death to a dream, a job, a house, and your fighting, and you look up, and it appears the game is over? And we know we serve a Jesus who heals, but did you know you also serve a Jesus who specializes in resurrection? His specialty is “game over.” When Jairus’ daughter died, Jesus said, “NO Fear – Only FAITH.” The marriage looks over. What will life be like after divorce? We see ourselves moving on. It’s over. But it doesn’t have to be. What if we give it to Christ, if we give death over to the one who conquered death, to Him who said, “Oh death, where is thy sting?” As followers of Christ do we throw in the towel? Or instead, do we speak to those dry bones in our dead desires, our waning business, our brokeness? Breathe – God has given us access to His resurrection power. If you will ever need this power, know this, you have experienced it already once, when you were born again.
