Today's Topic: CREATED TO BE A SUCCESS

Verse(s): Jeremiah 29:11
Today's Confession: Winning in life is God's purpose for my life!
God designed you to be successful! You can seize your God-given opportunities and turn them into realities because you were created and designed by God to be successful in EVERY endeavor in your life.
You don't have to be a failure. You were not designed by God to fail. You were designed by God to win. Maybe you have heard this phrase before: It's not whether you win or lose, it is how you play the game that counts.
I first heard that as a little nine year old boy playing baseball. My coach told us that. I thought that was the dumbest thing I had ever heard. If it didn't matter, then why were practicing all the time? It just didn't make sense to me.
Now, I understand he was talking about sportsmanship. But I didn't like that phrase then and I still don't like it. We play to win!
I found out that if you play baseball right, you win. Every time we played the game right, every time we played better than the opposing team, we won! Winning was the purpose of playing the game.
And the same is true in your spiritual life. God intends for us to win EVERY TIME! His plan is that we play the game right. His plan is that we play better than our adversary. And when you and I do that, we will win. Winning is God's purpose for your life.
