Game Plan

Game Plan

Each passing year opens the door for the new, for the things that are to come. Every year brings with it new gifts and treasures, things that you won’t be able to hold in your hands or gain unless you exit through one door and step into the next one.

You could illustrate the coming year by a complex, yet intriguing, board game. You begin the game at a specific spot, and the goal is to make it to the end. Like in most good games, it’s not just about making it from square 1 to square 100—it’s the adventures, the mishaps, and the prizes you win throughout the game that matter! You have to work your way through the game, deal with the good and the bad things that come up, and persevere to the end.

There are little secrets and tricks to this game that can help you get the most out of it—in this case, spiritual wealth and growth. In this new year’s game, as you make your way across the board, there will be things to gain and pick up along the way, to add to your “wealth,” which will give you better standing and an ability to withstand the obstacles you may encounter.

While you may enter this new year not completely sure of what it will bring and what you’ll need to see you through it, strive to move along at the pace I set for you. There’s so much ahead, but the path may only open up to you one roll at a time. So you’ve got to take it as it comes, gain the most you can out of each turn, and remember to stay close to Me.

—Jesus

Message from Jesus

These words from Jesus were received by men and women just like you who asked Jesus to speak to them. They claimed the biblical promise “Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known” (Jeremiah 33:3), and they received advice, direction, and encouragement.

The messages of guidance and comfort received during personal prayer express Jesus’ great love and personal concern. Jesus will speak to anyone who believes in Him, asks Him to speak, and accepts that the “still, small voice” (1 Kings 19:11–13) they hear in their hearts is Him speaking. You too can hear directly from Jesus. To find out more, check out this book.
