“His delight is not in the strength of the horse, nor his pleasure in the legs of a man, but the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear him, in those who hope in his steadfast love.”
- We will never impress God by what we can do, but we will always please Him with our trust and submission. The football team that is doing great is not impressing the Lord unless they fear Him and point all praise to Him. Ability is a gift from God, but humility is a gift to God. Everyone, regardless of their status, chooses who they fear and who they hope in, and all will give an account of where they placed their faith.
- Are you focusing more on your favorite sports team than you are Jesus Christ?
1 Peter 3:15 “But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.”
Philippians 4:4 “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!”
