Victory is Mine!

Thank You Note Letterpress

Acts 12:22 The people kept shouting, “The voice of a god, and not of a mortal!”

Two teams battle back and forth for three hours, then one brilliant play late in the game seals the outcome. Fans deem the key player their hero. Reporters surround the key player and shove microphones into his face. Everyone, reporters, fans from both teams, those still in the stadium and those watching or listening via television or radio, holds their breath. The player looks upward and says: “First I would like to thank God for granting me this opportunity to point beyond myself, to thank God for the opportunity to play with so many talented people from both teams who made this game so thrilling, to thank God for giving me the skills to rise to this level of success.” OK, maybe the sports hero you recall only used one of those accolades. Maybe he or she merely pointed and gazed upward.

Herod forgot who was really in charge despite the accolades of the crowd and died.

Which of your victories have you remembered to credit to God?
