The Castle Movie

It tells the story of Darryl and his fight against a large corporation.

Psalm 9:1-20

Reference: “For you have upheld my right and my cause, sitting enthroned as the righteous judge.” ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭9:4‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Explore: One of my all-time favourite movies is the Australian comedy The Castle. It tells the story of Darryl, a simple Aussie man, and his fight against a large corporation.

While Darryl loves and treasures his family home, the main airport want to tear it down for their own expansion. The fight against the great company is not looking good for Darryl when he can only afford a basic lawyer.

His chances turn, however, when a great QC decides to side with Darryl. With the might of a powerful advocate on his side, Darryl might even have a chance to save his home.

Application: It’s incredible how our future can look brighter when we have someone powerful by our side.

Nothing represents this better than the way our future changes when we have God at our side. Our chances turn once we start to rely on the most mighty One.

In Psalm 9 the writer marvels at the Lord’s commitment to be the righteous judge, defending his cause.

That same mighty, powerful God is by our side too. May we view our future differently because of His presence in our lives.

Prayer: Lord, You can change any situation. You are the strength and the courage we need to get through any challenge before us. Amen.

How has God changed your future?
