"How did THAT happen?" This is a common phrase that we utter when something unfortunate occurs in our life. We are often caught off guard by life's challenges. The truth is that we shouldn't be caught off guard as much as we are. God is clear. Life is hard. And life does not only contain obstacles that lay in our path, but also adversaries. We aren't playing golf where it is "us against the course". We are playing a full contact sport where there is an opponent that wants to beat us.
Lord, help me to be aware and prepared.
