Preparing for Life…NFL Style | Facing Your Blitz Weekly Video Devotion

Does life seem way too complicated to prepare for its many options? If so, check out what NFL teams do and then look at the one person who can simplify it all.

Game Plan:

“But blessed are those who trust in the LORD and have made the LORD their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.” Jeremiah 17:7-8, NLT

Time Out:

Preparing for the myriad twists, turns and blitzes of life can seem a lot more nebulous than what NFL players and coaches prepare for each week. Yet, our lives are way more important than football games. Here’s the only crystal clear approach to the unpredictable array of challenges and circumstances you will face… prepare for life by deepening your faith in the Lord and developing His character in yourself. Trust, hope and confidence in Christ come from examining His life and words, learning about His eternal Kingdom and adopting His character of humility, love and servanthood.

Life will blitz you. How you prepare before the blitz will be the key to how you handle it when it hits.

Go Deep:

Prepare your life strategy:

  • To develop a Long-Term View, aim your life toward Heaven and Christ’s reign in your heart.
  • To Be Willing To Change, make it your daily prayer and goal to “conform to the character of Christ”…humility, submission, love, sacrifice, patience and servanthood.
  • To Focus On Others, ask God to use you to bless, lift and encourage others. Then get ready for the tough battle against your selfishness!
