Scripture Lesson: Proverbs 21:30-31
On this date in 1979 Phil Niekro gets his 20th victory of the season by beating the Astros and his brother Joe 9-4. The Niekro’s are the only twenty game winners in the National League and are only the second pair of brothers to win 20 games in the same season (Gaylord and Jim Perry). Phil Niekro will finish the season 21-20 as the first pitcher to win 20 and lose 20 in the same year in the National League since 1905.
Our verses today from Proverbs remind us all where victory rests. Nothing this world can throw at us can succeed against the plans of the Lord. When God is in it, God is going to win it! We can make all the plans we want and prepare for moving ahead in life, but victory rests with the Lord. When God is leading us we will win at life and we will be able to accomplish great things for Him. If we want to win at life, we will go with God.
1. Describe a time you went ahead of God and did not consult Him for guidance.
2. How did that turn out?
3. Take time today to ask God for guidance and to give you the victory in life.
If God is always on the winning side, why aren’t we always on His side?
