The game of all games
Our thoughts might be on the football game today, but we also have thoughts of a big game called, "LIFE". God gave us each a mission to do here on earth. It's important to stay focused and not allow ourselves to drift away from God's thoughts. His plan is to prosper us and use us in all seasons of life.
Isaiah 55:8-9 New International Version (NIV)
8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
GOD LOOKS UPON THE HEART ~
1 Samuel 16:7 New International Version (NIV)
But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
Isn't it great that we are all on the same team with God? He looks at our hearts and we find out that it is not a game, but a real life daily walk with God. I like that God doesn't look on our appearance but inside our heart. Just like David in the Bible, God knew his heart and knew that David truly repented after he sinned. Each of us make mistakes of life and God forgives us. That makes an open door for us to learn about God, his ways and develop a character after Jesus. Jesus walked this earth and went about doing his father's work. We should never compare ourselves to anyone, but we certainly can let others inspire us to become a better person. I have a few people that I look up to and thank God they are in my life. I know I can count on them to pray and they can count on me to pray.
PRAYER WORKS ~
Do you need a prayer answered today? Are you holding on and asking someone else to pray with you? It helps and we were never meant to walk this life alone. We are on the same team, "God's Team". I pray daily for the readers of my blog, your family and friends. I don't need to know the why and God knows that. I care and I hope you feel that through my blog. Purpose this a great Super Bowl Sunday. Enjoy time with family and friends at church, home or parties today.
