"Do not be anxious about anything but in everything through prayer and petition with thanksgiving present your requests to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4:6-7

Games People Play

I bet everyone reading this has played some kind of game whether it has been a sports game, a board game, video game, cards, or shooting pool. I bet while you were playing your main objective was to win. Nobody likes to be a loser. Right? You had to know the rules of the game to win. I hope that part of your reason for playing games was to have fellowship with friends. Have you ever played a game and were so concerned with winning that you missed the fellowship of those with whom you were playing?

Think with me here a minute: working so hard to pay bills, put food on the table, clothes on their backs that you missed playing with your children. That's the way it is with God sometimes. I am so busy trying to follow the rules so I can win I don't fellowship with Him. I've got it backwards. If I will first fellowship with Him, following the rules would come naturally. DUH!

The most precious scripture - God's Perfect Game Plan
Romans 10:9 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

In other words - I WIN!

And you know what? Knowing that, I want everybody to be on the winning team. I am out to recruit. "How beautiful are the feet of the messenger who bring good news!"  Never thought I had pretty feet but I do now!

  1. Well, this has certainly inspired me! It's very timely as I'm struggling to get back to my early morning quiet time after being sick for awhile. Thanks for the shot of perspective.
    bless you,
