A Championship Season
I love football. Growing up, played a lot of backyard football. I knew nothing about playing for field position, or time of possession, or controlling the line of scrimmage. I just thought you should try to score every play.
Some people approach their life the way I played backyard football. Every play is a completely new game—just one desperate attempt after another to find something that works.
It doesn't have to be that way. If you implement God's game plan into your daily life you can turn your life into one long championship season. Here’s three things to remember.
1. Your job is to run the plays, not call them. That’s God’ job so ask Him this question: "God what do you want me to do? What is your plan for me? God, you call the plays, and I will run them."
2. The best defense in life is a good offense. Commit to Him by saying, “ I will stay focused on doing what You have called me to do. The best defense against obstacles, against critics, against your own fears, is a good offense.
3. Every play is a crucial play. You can say, "God, whatever it is you have for me to do, I will do it; and with your help, I will live every day like it is the most important play of the whole game."
Consistently surrender to his leadership: consistently, because every day is a crucial day; surrendering, through active obedience; to His leadership, because he calls the plays—and God will turn your life into a championship season.
Think about it!
