Hey Partners and Friends!
This week I felt led to talk to you about the ministry God has called me to, Champions 4 Christ. I have been blessed to have traveled in this ministry for the last 19 years, and I am very thankful to God for the calling on my life. But, it wasn’t always that way. When I first started out my life as an adult, I was a baseball coach; and God had blessed me with the ability to coach on a very successful level. I looked to God for help, but God wasn’t my first priority. It was always my plan and not God’s plan. It wasn’t that I was running from God or that I had backslidden. I loved him and gave Him the glory for everything He blessed me with, but I wasn’t putting Him first. And because of His great love, He still blessed me with a great deal of success.
My plan was going well, I was successful with it, and I believe it prepared me for the greater plan God had for me; but it wasn’t God’s plan. The word of God tells us in Jeremiah 29:11 that God has a plan for us! The Word states, “For I know the plans I have for you”, says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Praise God! You may not know the plan yet, but God does! Trust Him! Speak Jeremiah 29:11 over yourself when you get to looking at your life and feel like you don’t know what the plan is. Champions talk the talk before they win the game. Speak over yourself, “According to the word of God, God has a plan for me and I thank Him for it now and as you speak over yourself, put your feet to work. Ask God to direct you to people that you need to meet, the places you need to go, the applications you need to fill out. Then praise God for it! Praise God because you trust Him that He will fulfill His promise. He will fulfill your plan. And Remember what Jeremiah said, God’s plan is to give you a future and a hope! Trust God!
