We all have expectations. Our expectations are financial, relational and educational. We place these expectations on ourselves and on others. Many times though, we fail. We wipe out. We fall short of our goals. We let others down. Others let us down. Often we try to get back into the battle, yet fail again and again. The greatest and least of us has suffered multiple wipeouts. Worst of all, we have failed to meet God’s expectations. Can we recover? Can we actually make it to the end without another wipeout?

In this series, Brad will take a look at part of the life of Elijah, a man who brought God’s message to people and is considered a success. Yet he suffered a major wipeout in his life. He did come back because of God and we’ll see how the same principles work in our lives.

Finishing As A Winner July 31, 2011

At the end of it all, we really can’t brag about our accomplishments. God is the one who wins. God doesn’t hold our wipeouts against us, either.
