Half Time Report
Why do you think companies spend so much money to advertise during the half time report of any sporting event? Because they know that people want a detailed analysis of the first half as they anticipate the second. The first half of the game provides insight as to how the second half is projected to go. Keep in mind that it is only a projection and they really don't have the final say.
So it is the same with us. We are at the half way mark of this year. Just like the sports pundits, we make an assessment of how effective we have been in accomplishing our goals the first half of the year. Just like the pundits, there is a finite amount of information we have in order for us to make that assessment. We can only view it from our vantage point.
You see, the sports pundits are going by what their eyes can see. They don't know all the information. Back in the locker room each team is making their own assessment of the first half of the quarter. They are establishing new strategies to win from their analysis. As they analyze the first half, they are adjusting their strategy to alleviate the obstacles that have prevented them from being successful. The sportscasters covering the game are not privy to these adjustments in strategy. They can speculate, but they don't have all the facts.
You are the same way. The forces of this world that tries to prevent you from accomplishing your goals have a limited perception. However, as you and God meet in the locker room you all are developing a new strategy in stepping up your game to win. Only you and God know what is happening in that locker room. God's report supersedes any half time report of the forces of the air.
Howbeit, you still have to do something. In the locker room of prayer and meditation, God is providing you with the play book. It is up to you to execute the plays. Just like professional athletes who have exceptional prowess as some of the best in the world, each of us have been endowed with exceptional abilities when we follow the instructions of our coach.
Each player is on the field playing the game. Their vantage point is different from the coach's. The coach can see the play of everyone, but each player is focused primarily on their position. The coach's analyzes not just the game, but the crowd as well. So the coach knows that if you don't get the crowd out of the game, you can lose because of the negative chants from the opposing team's fans can get in your head. The coach knows that when you go out for the second half of the game, the cacophonous noise from the crowd has to be silenced. You need a big score!
This win will silence the loudest crowd. It doesn't matter if you are in a sports arena or the arenas of your mind, those negative voices are pivotal to your success or failure.
How are you going to silence them? You got it! You are going to score big! Wow! You have taken the crowd of negativity out of the game! You're gaining momentum as you propel through the second half and win it all!
