The Game Of Life

You turn my life around, around,
You turn my life around, around,
He is the way where there is no way;
Jehovah has the final say.

Yes indeed.
John 14:6 says: “He is the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through His son.”
The Son of God; the one who died for our sins.
The one who suffered on the cross for us,
The one who never sinned, but yet bored our sin so that we may be free.
Free, I say.
What is freedom?
Making our own decisions? Doing whatever we want, whenever we want?
Living life our own way?
Remember that in the end
This ‘freedom’ can give you a ‘free’ ride to hell,
That is, if you don’t ‘free’ yourself from this world.
So are you really free then?
1 Peter 2:16 says: “As servants of God, live as free people, yet do not use your freedom as a pretext for evil.”
Galatians 5:13 says: “For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters; only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for self-indulgence, but through love become slaves to one another.”
Remember that all actions have a reaction;
Each move has several outcomes,
But you will never know which move will produce which outcome.
Life isn’t like a game of chess.
You are not able to predict future moves or outcomes.
There is no undo button like when you’re playing against the computer and find yourself in a checkmate,
But make sure that life doesn’t checkmate you
Because when it does, you will find yourself in a corner
And no one can get you out of that tight squeeze.
Right?
Wrong.
God can overcome any checkmate in life.
Exodus 14:13a says: “But Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid, stand firm, and see the deliverance that the Lord will accomplish for you today.” ”
Use your freedom wisely.
Trust in God and you’ll never have to predict moves like a game of chess.
Of course, there is still no undo button.
But trust God to make the right moves
And surely you will checkmate life.

Who has the final say,
Jesus has the final say.

Whose decision will you follow:
Yours or God’s?
