In August 1966, Brian London fought for the world heavyweight title for the second time, when Muhammad Ali came to defend his title at Earl’s Court Exhibition Hall. Ali put in a masterful performance hitting London at will - as London put it in an interview with BBC TV “he was just getting through all the time” - Brian was KOd in the 3rd round after Ali landed 11 punches in 3 seconds.
11 PUNCHES IN 3 FCKING SECONDS?!!!! DAYUM!!!!
Are you drowning in your sorrow, because you refuse to completely trust God? Are you moping about the setbacks of your life, because you have failed to accept His grace? Are you suffering from the sin that has wrecked everything around you, because you won’t submit yourself to accountability? Do you hold back from committing to God because you are afraid He won’t accept you?
Whatever you are holding on to tighter than your faith, I believe Jesus would say, “Pick up your mat and walk!” Trust Him with that in which you currently trust the most. Permit Him to see you through the difficult days of life. Allow Him to carry your burdens, strengthen your walk and brighten your hope for the future.
Jesus wants to help you. Listen for His command to pick up your mat and walk!
