The UNDERDOG Champion

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


Psalm 146:7

He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The Lord sets prisoners free.


The Psalmist says what most “Followers Of Jesus” already know. Our God is “The UNDERDOG Champion!”


The first category of underdogs is the OPPRESSED. Jesus cares for those who are suffering injustice of any kind. Never, ever do we read of Jesus walking by someone who was oppressed and that He just kept walking. No! He’s always tuned in to that cry … “Jesus, son of David, have mercy on me!” He also cares for those who are HUNGRY. He actually told us in Matthew 25 that when we see the hungry and feed them we are actually feeding Jesus. That’s His care for the HUNGRY. Finally, Jesus cares for the PRISONER. He cares so much that the Psalmist said Jesus sets the PRISONERS free. The challenge for all of us is to be like Jesus. “The UNDERDOG Champion.”


Dear Jesus,

Thank You for always being for me even when I’m usually the UNDERDOG. You’ve never given up on me. Help me to be more like You. Amen
