Your sports team just won the Championship!
You beat every other team out there. You are in the record books, the newspapers, and on TV. You have a Championship ring and everything.
But the day after your win, you oversleep and miss one of several victory parades. You’re devastated. You throw your Championship ring on the ground and walk around feeling like a failure. You talk under your breath about how you’re a terrible athlete and maybe you should never play the sport again.
Simply because you missed one of many celebrations.. Â
Then why do we let ourselves feel so discouraged when we miss our time with God in the morning? The victory parade has no bearing on the win. He already won the Championship, we are simply invited to the celebration every morning.
He wants to meet with you and celebrate and remind you of the victory you already have in Him.Â
We may wake up late, we may not have many minutes to offer but if we don’t offer the little we do have, how can He multiply it?Â
Nothing is a “failure” unless we refuse Grace…because Grace already won.
So start everyday as the fresh, clean, blank canvas that it is.Â
There’s a celebration waiting.
