Your Spiritual Game Plan |Dr. William Lee
God is looking to restore in humanity the image of Himself. Everything desired from and through men comes as a result of men growing spiritually and maturing as disciples: family blessings, stewardship, service, outreach, prayer, spiritual leadership, lifestyle evangelism, and genuine obedience faith, God is honored, and many lives are blessed.
In order words, what intentional steps will you take to obtain spiritual growth and live victorious in 2019? It has been said that “He who fails to plan, plans to fail.” When it comes to our spiritual lives if we do not have an intentional plan for spiritual growth we will be powerless, hopeless, and empty. However, if you make pointed decisions now to live the victorious life then you will find the power, courage, and fulfillment that you always wanted. Let’s not continue to talk about being filled with the Holy Spirit of God – Let’s be filled now to overflowing! Read Matthew 4:1-11
Let’s Develop your Spiritual Game Plan
- Have a Prayer Plan.
- Do you have a time when you regularly/daily commune with God in prayer? “The object of prayer is simply not to get “hooked-up” by God (material things), but to be transformed in His presence.” Read Mark 1:35; Proverbs 8:17, Ephesians 6:18. Note: Don’t worry about the quantity of time spent as much as the quality of time spent with God.
- Have a Bible Study Plan.
- Spiritual growth happens as you spend time in the Word of God. Note: A good place to begin Bible Study is the Sabbath School Quarterly. Read: Psalms 119:105; Amos 8:11; Matthew 4:4; Hebrews 4:12.
- Have a Family Plan.
- For what would it profit a man to get the popularity of work associates, colleagues, “gym buddies” but lose your wife and kids? Read: Ephesians 5:25, 28-29; Col. 3:21.
- Have a Witnessing Plan.
- God has called you to share your faith with others. The main reason why the “Dead Sea” has its name is that it has no outlets. Ask God to help you share the love of God with at least one person per week. Bring a brother to church! Read: Isaiah 43:10-12; Revelation 12:11.
- Have a service plan.
- What are you doing in the church and outside of the church? Christ calls each of us to Christian service. As you pray, study, and witness you must serve…! If you are too busy to serve then you are too busy! Read Matthew 5:13-16. A relationship with God is the most important relationship you can ever have. Embrace it every day.
