Huddle Up

Football fans understand the importance of the huddle. There, players receive the plan, check strategies, and hear the next step to take to reach the goal. It’s where they receive insight, direction, and encouragement and are expected to give their best.

Hey, that sounds very similar to what we do when we draw near to God. In our mind, we step in close to listen so as not to miss ‘the call’ as the world is screaming its agenda. Much of the time, we are silent. Sometimes, we ask questions … and then, listen some more … or take time to read the ‘playbook’ (God’s Word).

Your small godly huddle is also a time to ‘catch your breath’ between ‘plays.’ There, you receive God’s direction, correction, and encouragement. At times, He may give you a slap on the back or a slap on the hand. Depending on the situation, He may cheer you on, dry your tears, or surround you with comfort and peace.

Without a routine ‘huddle,’ we miss out on offensive and defensive strategies, insights we need in order to succeed. We fumble and fail to mature, go the wrong direction, and don’t focus on our goal of living Christ-like.

Like football players, we experience the best outcome when we follow the given plan. Blessings are ‘scored’ and the ‘Coach’ and ‘teammates’ rejoice with us when we walk in obedience, giving our all.

“You have made known to me the ways of life; You will make me full of joy in Your presence” (Acts 2:28). “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” (James 4:8).

Take time for the huddle.
