When Belgium Dark Chocolate Did Not Melt In The Furnace…. – Duke Jeyaraj Bible Devotion starting from the Belgium-Japan Round of 16 Game in Russia 2018

‘Trailing 2-0 to Japan and heading out of the World Cup, the Red Devils mounted an extraordinary comeback, scoring three times in the final 21 minutes to set up a quarter-final against Brazil’ (BBC on the Belgium V Japan Round of 16 game). When the going got tough, the tough got going, for the Belgium team. Instead of melting like Belgium Dark Chocolate in the heat, they became steel-willed. They did not think as Japan led 2-0, “Another 21 minutes, we will be out of this World Cup….. ” Instead, they thought, “Another 21 minutes to fight-back and come back into this game!” Come-back, they certainly did. Only way back in 1970 has any team won a World Cup game after being down 0-2. What about us? Do we give up easily? Do we refuse to fight when the going gets tough? The Bible tells us, “…we never give up!” (2 Cor. 4:1). The reason? “God, in his mercy has given us this wonderful ministry” (2 Cor. 4:1). Because God does not give up on us, we also must not give up! God asks Ephraim, “How can I give you up?” (Hos. 11:8). God asks us, “How can I give you up!” Motivated by such love, we too must not give up in our fight against winning over the porn-temptation, winning over short-temper, winning over laziness, winning over fear when it comes to witnessing, winning over that irritating-cunning guy in the office by love and continuing to finish what God has called us to do!!!!! Yes, we can!!!! As Belgium showed versus Japan!!!!Belgium-goal-0
