Thanksgiving Day

Yesterday, while praying with several brothers, I received a picture in my spirit of God bending down and playing chess with us. After carefully observing the board He turned to me and said, “It’s your move.”

My initial response was of dismay, “How could I ever survive a competition with God?”

Then I realized that God had set up the chess board in such a way that whenever I made a move, He would arrange the pieces so that in the end I would win! In other words, the game was stacked in my favor!

I was blown away! He wants us to succeed! He wants us be victorious! He wants this so fervently that he delights in the details of our lives (Psalm 37:23) and he eagerly arranges all the details for our ultimate victory!

This means that if at the moment I feel blocked in, there is a next move. And I take that next move in faith and in confidence that God loves us and “that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose for us.” (Romans 8:28).

Thanks be to God for His outrageous grace!
