So I thought I would talk to you this morning about our awesome God who loves to turn the tables and beat the odds makers by His miraculous power, and He loves to surprise us by His grace and wisdom.

“…the wisdom which none of the rulers of this age has understood; for if they had understood it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory; but just as it is written, things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, and which have not entered the heart of man, all that God has prepared for those who love Him”
(1 Corinthians 2: 8, 9 NASB).

The odds makers of this world cannot see, hear, or understand God’s wisdom power and promises; and therefore, they predict failure for people who have the odds stacked against them. When the odds are stacked against Christians, God turns the tables by His wisdom and grace and brings blessings and success to those who love Him.

Many of us feel that the odds are stacked against us of ever being successful or of having any value in life. You may feel like you have nothing to contribute because of a financial setback or job loss or maybe you feel devalued by your circumstances or past mistakes and you think it’s too late to turn your life around because your life got broken during childhood through molestation or some other problem.

And maybe you walk around feeling like damaged goods, and your spirit has plummeted to the ground. You’ve stopped believing that you can beat the odds stacked against you to ever amount to anything. If you’re situation is similar to these discouraging scenarios, would you just listen to the Lord saying to you today, “Don’t give up! Don’t do it!”
