God Is My Cheerleader, Coach, and Sponsor
A devotion on Isaiah 40:28-29
Haven’t you known? Haven’t you heard? The everlasting God, the LORD, The Creator of the ends of the earth, doesn’t faint. He isn’t weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak. He increases the strength of him who has no might.
Cheerleaders, coaches, and sponsors all encourage people to keep going, even when mistakes are made.
Coaches train people, helping them to reach higher levels of excellence. Sponsors provide strategies for quitting addicting behaviors, as well as listening and encouraging people to make better life choices. However, humans are limited as to how long they can listen or how often they can be physically present. Even the wisdom of our advice has limits. But God has no limits.
God constantly gives us life and sends help to fight temptation. He will never give up on us. He knows all the possible routes we might take. He sends encouragement at just the right time.
God gives strength to the weak. We, of our sinful natures, can do very little but cry out to God for help. When we cry out in faith and believe, God will step in and fight our battles with us and for us. He empowers us to resist temptation. He gives us the strength to overcome our shortcomings. He will give you everything you need to be victorious over sin.
God wants to be your cheerleader, coach, and sponsor. All He needs is your permission.
Ask Him for His divine encouragement today.

Lord in heaven, Please be my coach, sponsor, and cheerleader. Send me strength to overcome my sinful habits. Give me wisdom and advice to know how to deal with situations today. And please send me encouragement to keep going. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
