Proverbs 3:5-7 says, “Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; He’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all.  Run to God! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health and your very bones will vibrate with life!” – The Message

The truth about living out your life on this earth is you no longer are to be controlled by the standards of this world and the devil’s grip. The reality is God has a designed plan for you in both small or big things. He is responsible for doing the work through you as you act out those tasks He puts before you on His behalf. You’re just His humble vessel using the personality and characteristics He endowed you with.

Our responsibility is to allow the power of His Holy Spirit to live inside you guiding and directing your path and permeating your very being. Think about it. Christ said He’d never leave or forsake us. Our Father in heaven provides His Very Spirit to change your way of thinking, asking and expecting. Life on this earth and the game doesn’t get any better. God places the Holy Spirit inside you to show you what He wants you to perceive and hear Him and how you are to respond from His spiritual counseling.

We learn how to let Him walk alongside us, telling us how He wants us to live and disciple others in this game of soccer.  He has planned out your journey and knows every move you’re to be making, so the best thing, as I’ve learned is to let Him be that driving force in my life, keeping my foot off the brake. This is an important concept to understand. God never intended for you to figure out the moves you must make without Him. Trust Him for this because He has more moves for you to accomplish than the moves of a multi-million-dollar player.

What’s your next move?
