“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” (Psalm 139: 13-14)

The Ultimate Game Plan

At the highest level of sports, teams spend almost as much time, if not more, studying their opponent than focusing on themselves. Coaches go through hours and hours of film on the team they’re about to play, trying to find even the slightest weakness they might be able to exploit. Without a good game plan, every team is in big trouble. Games can be won and lost well before the players take the field if teams don’t prepare properly.

Luckily for us, we don’t need to worry about creating a game plan for our lives because God already did. Even better yet, God’s game plan is perfect! He knows us better than anyone else possibly could. Before we were even born, God wonderfully and fearfully made each and every one of us with a specific and unique plan in mind.

God gave us all different talents and passions to use for His glory and to further His kingdom on earth. We don’t need to become somebody else to serve God, we just need to be ourselves! After all, it was Him who designed us the way that we are. Looking at the way God shaped you offers a big clue to how you fit into His grand vision. If you ever find yourself worrying about your plan is, remember that God already has it all figured out. We just need to follow Him!
