The Pressure Is Off

The Pressure Is Off

Isaiah 40:31 “But they who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not be faint.”

Does anyone else immediately get the scene from the movie “Remember the Titans” in their mind when they hear this scripture? Ha. If not, I urge you to stop what you’re doing and stream either the full heartwarming film or find this specific scene on YouTube because it is POWERFUL. I’ll set the scene: a rowdy bunch of teenage boys on the football team prepping for social “battle” in their newly racially integrating high school gather in the gym. One of them starts quoting this scripture and another joins in and soon the whole group is rallied together in unity. They even put a little melodic rhythm to it, and it is catchy to say the least. 

Y’all, they are hyping one another up with God’s promises. His Word. What better way is there? What could be more solid? It’s my hope that His truth could light my soul on fire similar to this dynamic movie scene! Because COME ON, let’s go! 

It’s not that we are promised that our lives will be easy or perfect ~ I’m sure we ALL can attest to that fact. But we are promised a strength unlike anything that we can imagine. He’s with us every step of the way and the battle has already been won, so the pressure is off of us. All we need to do is show up and He will be faithful. What do I know? Our God is a promise-keeper, so we can rest easy.

Letting go of my “boast list”
Letting go of my “boast list”

April 10, 2024

Turns out that like Paul, I’m not as “good” as my spiritual “boast list” makes me appear. I had misunderstood the beauty of the gospel- that salvation is based solely on the goodness of God, not the goodness of me. It is God’s grace that produces good works in us, not the other way around. Friend, let this truth dissolve any stock we have in our ability to produce a spiritual “boast list.” It’s been a humbling journey to let go of my “boast list,” but the grace of Jesus is so much better to h...
