On Sunday October 23,2011, The New Orleans Saints had an amazing game. They completely devastated the Colts with a 62-7 win. This win got the Saints and their fans ready for the next victim: the St. Louis Rams. With starting quarterback Sam Bradford out with a high left ankle sprain, the Rams put faith in their second-string quarterback A.J. Feeley. The game started and the Rams were off to an impressive start. Steven Jackson scored two touchdowns! The stadium was on their feet, watching the unexpected unfold. At half time the Rams had scored 17 while they held the Saints at 0. With the encouragement from the now- World Series Champs (The St. Louis Cardinals), the Rams didn’t hold back. They ended up winning the game 31-21. Who would have thought that that would happen? That win was the first of the Rams this season and not even die-hard fans saw it coming. When things like this happen, it’s amazing and it makes for an awesome story! In our lives, God is on our side. With Him we can do the unexpected! Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” When the odds are stacked against us, and our opponent is coming off of an impressive win, we will still prevail through God. Just like the Rams were expected to lose the game, we are expected to crumble from the harsh blows of Satan. But also like the Rams, we will prevail and take home the ultimate victory when the clock runs out. We will be faced with obstacles, much like STL did when Bradford was injured, but we will still come out on top. Never doubt the power of God in the issues you deal with, He is far bigger than whatever you are struggling with. When life gets tough and our “season” isn’t looking good, God will help you pull out an unexpected win. Judges 20:27b “And God said, ‘Attack. Tomorrow I’ll give you victory.'”
