I'm Ron Burgundy?
Alright, so Will Ferrell is one of the funniest comic actors today and arguably Anchorman is his best film. However, you may be wondering why I'm choosing to talk about Anchorman after all the talk about Jesus. Well you can find God's truth anywhere if you look hard enough for it, and I believe I've found it in this particular scene.
This isn't the best clip out there but the only one I could find of this scene. So for a little background knowledge for those of you who haven't seen the movie, - Uh oh...Spoiler Alert...to a six years old movie - Ron Burgundy is the top anchorman is San Diego until a female co-worker joins his team who eventually becomes co-anchors with Ron and for certain reasons gets Ron fired yadda yadda yadda... It's not really important how he got there but up to this point in the clip Ron is unemployed and in the worst slump of his life, going as far as wigging out in a telephone booth as he yells, "I'm in a glass case of emotion!"
In this clip, he's sitting in bar when he gets a phone call for him to come do a news story. He goes into the bathroom, gets cleaned up, comes out and decides to call his ever faithful news team. Upon calling for them, he then realizes that they had been with him the whole time.
How often have we been in the worst slumps of our lives, believing that God had forsaken us? Then when we call out to Him only to realize that He was there through all of it. It was only when we finally called out to Him that we realized He was present.
He was always there. He always will be, waiting for us to cry out to Him.
God will never leave us, nor will He abandon us. Deuteronomy 31:6 says, "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” God is faithful! In the best of times, in the worst of times, you can rest assured knowing He is there and that He loves you.
So friends, if you're in the dumps, if you're just coasting by, or if you've got it made and you don't know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, would you ask Him to assemble in your heart. He's already there waiting on you, waiting on you to call out to Him.
