A Winning Plan for Your Life

Winning the game of life takes real guts, hard work and wisdom, not luck, hand-outs or foolishness. To win one must be committed to the task and focused on the finish line. So, how does one win at the game of life?

First, start early, and take the home field advantage. Too many people become serious about the things that should have mattered much earlier in life; however, life is never too late to start winning. Then, there are too many who try to play the game of life on some one else's field. In other words they look at others and mimic what they perceive as success instead of using their own God given gifts and talents.

I believe there are four critical elements that make up a winning plan for anyone's life. First, you need unlimited resources at your disposal. Second, you need access to the top. Third, you need supernatural wisdom and knowledge. Finally, you need to surround yourself among winners, not losers.

God has an economic stimulus plan that exceeds anything a Republican or Democrat could ever touch. In fact, God's plan is so fool-proof that He challenges any person to prove Him wrong. The winning plan requires each person to begin tithing to their local Church (Malachi 3:9-11). "Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it."

The next part of the plan is gain access to the top. How much time do we waste dealing with lower management and floor staff trying to resolve conflict? The secret is go to the top with the matter. When you develop a consistent prayer life, you must realize that you are communicating with the top… God Almighty! No manager, CEO or President can settle, change, console nor enlighten in a lifetime what God can do in moments. A winning plan requires round the clock access to our Heavenly Father through prayer (Romans 8:26-28).

What to do, how to do, where to do and when to do can all become crystal clear through the wisdom and knowledge of God's Word. Without the wisdom of God's Word you cannot afford to make life changing decisions. Knowledge is the value of pursuit, acquisition and education, wisdom is the application of the sum thereof; knowledge and wisdom will always produce success (Colossians 3:16).

"Birds of a feather (often) flock together". Winning people need to surround themselves around other winning people. Think about it. What kind of wisdom and knowledge can be extracted from losing people? The fact is, success often breeds success. The institution of the Church is the place where winning people should congregate on a weekly basis. Those who are saved, committed to the local church, and devoted to the study of God's Word are the winners with whom you want to associate. The final mark of a winning plan is to make a commitment to be active in a local Church that teaches and preaches from the Bible, evangelizes, allows for Praise and Worship and offers opportunities to fellowship with others (Hebrews 10:24).

However, before you can win at life, you must win at death by defeating the curse of eternal damnation. Good people with good works are disqualified from this race. To participate you must first accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior (Romans 10:9-10; John 9:31).
