Life doesn’t often move as fast as an NFL game, but we can learn a lot about how to face our problems from the opportunities and adaptations that blitzes create. God’s long-term perspective and purpose to improve our character and fill us with His love make a huge difference in facing out blitzes.
“And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” Romans 5: 3-5, NASB
Is it possible that we don’t intensely focus on God’s radical love for us as well when our circumstances are easy, as when they shock us with difficulty or loss?
Do you face life’s blitzes as a victim or as an opportunist?
Envision a blitz you’ve faced or are facing…and think of a few ways you can change or mature to be a better version of yourself.
Have a conversation with your spouse or another close friend about how you changed for the better through a blitz?
Would you be willing to talk to God about your blitzes and thank Him for the opportunity they represent to persevere in trusting Him, changing your character to be more like Jesus, setting your hope on heaven, and letting His love for you shine bigger than any earthly circumstances?
