God Loves the Underdog

Looking upward through trees in autumn

Then the Lord raised up judges, who saved them out of the hands of these raiders.—Judges 2:16 (NIV)

Philip Yancey said, “Though the world may be tilted toward the rich and powerful, God is tilted toward the underdog.” The Bible is filled with unlikely heroes, ordinary people that the world considered underdogs. When you think that a goal is out of reach and the odds are stacked against you, look to the Bible and the many examples of everyday people living lives of heroic faith.

Today's Prayer:

Dear Lord, when I feel discouraged give me a boost of Your confidence. Help me to remember that because of You I will be victorious.
