Today is the first of October and the beginning of the fourth quarter of the year. If you’re a big sports fan like I am you know that it’s how you play in the fourth quarter that can cause you to win or lose the game. The fourth quarter is your last opportunity to score some points and retake the lead from their opponent. God has the ability to help you make a fourth quarter comeback in the last three months of this year.
I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten, the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm my great army that I sent among you. Joel 2:25
After going through the first three quarters of the year, you should know your opponents strategies by know. Know that every Temptation that the enemy is only a test and after each test you pass you gain wisdom. In this fourth quarter, apply that wisdom to score some points and get back into the lead.
You may have not showed up at all in the first three quarters of this year but now is the time to put some points on the board. Christians often time procrastinate and are passive about going after the promise that God has spoken to them. God is always waiting for us to take the first step. Peter had to trust Jesus work when He told him to step out of the boat and walk on water. It wasn’t that peter took that first step that he was able to do it. If you have been procrastinating and waiting for God to make the first move, Its time for you to apply your faith to the Word that God has spoken to you and take that first step. Isaiah 30:21 says “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” This verse is very powerful because if you read it, it says when you decide to go in any particular direction, then you will hear Gods voice confirming your steps. Its time to make up for lost ground in the fourth quarter of the year and finish strong.
Gods power is always available to you. No matter the deficit that you are facing as a result of the past quarters of this year. God is with you now and He wants you to finish this year off strong. I am working to finish off some projects that have been on hold for a while and one of them is launching a new podcast. It is called the Faith Fight Podcast. This podcast will be able to help you with your prayer life and bible devotion and I will be releasing the first episodes soon. You can subscribe by clicking here to receive a notification when the first episodes are released.
Its time for your fourth quarter comeback. Go make it happen!!
