M o m e n t u m
Deuteronomy 28:7

Have you ever been in a competition and observed how momentum swings from one team to the other?  It's like the wind is changing direction and with it the power to win.  At times it seems like the power goes out for one team and the other team's power is multiplied by seven.  The Bible speaks of that dynamic.

In Moses' book called Deuteronomy at chapter 28 and verse 7 it says, "The Lord will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you.   They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven."  Your enemies are a little different than those who opposed Moses, but the principle is the same.  If we are obedient to the Lord, we'll see success and our enemies will flee from us. 

Notice also that even though the enemy comes from one direction, they flee from us in seven.  God's at work in us to multiply by seven times our successes over against our challenges.

Tonight, play with great confidence and power.  Trust that even though your opponents come against you, they'll be defeated seven times over.  Take the game to these people and play your game at all times.
