1 Corinthians 16:13
Football season is in full force. And as a Michigander, I have to say the Detroit Lions with their first place standing in the NFC North, is a rare happening that has fans cheering. Their winning streak is due in large part to the guidance, teaching, and encouragement they receive from their dedicated coaches. God is our great Coach. He guides, teaches, and encourages us to remain vigilant, resolute in faith, and resilient in the face of trials. To never give up hope or give in to fear or discouragement. To stand firm in our beliefs, drawing strength from the hopeful expectation of a future grounded in faith. The call to courage and strength isn’t merely about facing challenges head-on but is deeply rooted in the enduring hope that sustains through difficulties. It’s a reminder that hope isn’t passive, but an active force that fortifies endurance. Allowing us to victoriously navigate life’s obstacles with unwavering faith and steadfast determination.
