For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
God has always had a plan for you and Satan will always have a plot against it. Spiritual warfare does not occur accidentally but is something that is strategically planned.
Knowing this God gave us a way to win the battle. It is a Spiritual Game Plan, He has had one all along and you have a purpose in it.
Just like I will share in this episode, knowing the Word equips us, but then we need to actually use the purpose God gave us if we want to live out that plan. It is Practice that reveals our Purpose.
For so many years I tried to accomplish the plans I saw others carrying out. It started as far back as I can remember.
- Trying to be the scholastic that my little sister was and still is.
- Trying to be the performer I saw others being
- Trying to be like the mom’s who did it all
- Trying to write and speak like those I admired
The list could keep going. While I spent that time trying to live the purpose God had given to others, I was not living mine and I was depriving others of the gifts I had. Those gifts were locked up, unused and unblessed. When that happens Satan’s plot is working. To keep you from fully grasping just how relevant you are. To keep you from sharing God to others in the way you were created for.
My own struggle with being relevant, finding my place and wanting to be used by God has lead me on a personal journey to:
- Unlock The Purpose God placed in me. To be relevant I have to be real. I have to be faithful in using the gifts God gave me.
- Coming up with a game plan on how I can face the daily challenges and still be a light to others. That starts with prayer and scripture reading.
- Accepting the intentional masterpiece that I am. Believing who God tells me I am! I am His workmanship, His heir and I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
So are you! You matter! You are relevant!
I hope this podcast, and future episodes, help you come up with Your Spiritual Game Plan.
