The Lord's Baseball Game

Bob was caught up in
the spirit where he and the Lord
stood by to observe a baseball game. 
The Lord's team was playing Satan's team.
The Lord's team was at bat, the score was tied zero to zero,
and it was the bottom of the 9th inning with two outs. 
They continued to watch as a batter stepped up to the plate
whose name was Love. Love swung at the first pitch and hit a single,
because Love never fails.
The next batter was named Faith, who also
got a single, because Faith works with Love.




 The next batter up was
named Godly Wisdom. 
Satan wound up and threw the first pitch;
Godly Wisdom looked it over and let it pass,
because Godly Wisdom does not swing at Satan's pitches.
Ball one.
Three more pitches and Godly Wisdom walked,
because Godly Wisdom never swings at Satan's throws.
The bases were loaded.



The Lord then
turned to Bob and told him, 
He was now going to bring in His
star player.  Up to the plate stepped Grace. 
Bob said, he sure didn't look like much!  Satan's whole
team relaxed when they saw Grace. Thinking they had won the game, Satan wound up and fired his first pitch.  To the shock of everyone, Grace hit the ball harder than anyone had ever seen.  But, Satan was not worried; his center fielder, the Prince of the air, let very few get by. He went up for the ball, but it went right through his glove, and hit him on the head and sent him
crashing on the ground; then continued over
the fence for a homerun!!! 
The Lord's team won!!

The Lord then asked
Bob if he knew why Love, Faith,
and Godly Wisdom could get on base, but
could not win the game?
Bob answered that he did not know why.

The Lord explained, "If your love, faith and wisdom had won the
game you would think you had done it by yourself. 
Love, faith and wisdom will get
you on base, but only My grace can get you home.
My grace is the one thing
Satan can not stop!!!
