I was playing 6v6 soccer with friends this past weekend and I was sensing we would need some angels to win the game.
I looked around my team and saw that I was the only one wearing soccer cleats while the other team had 3-4 players that had cleats.
Quick math said there were more “soccer” players on the other team. And I had not played in a while.
Enter the Angels.
I remembered the Angels in the Outfield movie from the mid 1990s and released a prayer of, “In Jesus name, I declare and release angels to our team!”
So the game began, and we were holding our own against the other team!
My first clue of angels being with us was when I had a breakaway on goal and before I shot the ball, I did not rush the shot like I would in the past. I calmly set my feet and placed the ball nicely in the corner of the goal.
The goal made it 1-0.
I became convinced there were angels with us later in the game when the other team had a point blank shot on net.
A quick thought of, “Lie down” came upon me. I listened to it and the ball bounced right off my leg!
Thanks for the tip angel!
The rest of the game was an enjoyable time with friends and am grateful for the experience this weekend.
My takeaway from the game was God really wants us to have fun in life. Too often, I get wound up in thinking about the future. This was a chance to relax with some amazing friends and some new angel friends!
