When God Calls You to Stand Up | by Kevin Meyer

My daughter signed up to ref kid’s soccer games. She was trained and assigned her first game with a couple of her 14 year old soccer friends. Her first game was reffing 7-8 year olds. The game was intense. No, let put it this way, the parents on the sidelines were intense. Far too intense for a game children that no one would ever remember, even six months later.
Parents…in their 30’s and 40’s were yelling at these 14 year old refs for calls they did or didn’t make. It was horrible. My wife – knowing that prayer is powerful and that God’s Presence is a force to be reckoned with – walked over to the sideline and into the center of where these ‘ugly’ parents were yelling. She stood there and silently prayed.
Within minutes, it stopped. Completely. Remember the calming of the sea when Jesus spoke to the storm. I literally believe Jesus spoke to the storm of evil spirits and said: “ENOUGH! STOP!”
WHEN GOD CALLS YOU TO STAND UP FOR SOMEONE OR SOMETHING, THERE IS NO POWER IN THE WORLD THAT CAN STAND AGAINST YOUR GOD.
