Limit the turnovers

Limit the turnovers
Turnovers are costly. I know because I watch it on a weekly basis with
my Chicago Bears. We have a talented quarterback but he has a nasty
habit of giving the ball to the other team at the most in opportune
times. The other team converts points off the turnovers and we find
ourselves trying to catch up or falling short of a victory. It’s a lot
like life, however, life is not a game and the consequences are much
greater. When you fumble in life, you give an advantage to the enemy.
That is why it is so important that we know the playbook (Bible) and
execute the play correctly. Don’t get on the field of life without
listening to the coach (God) and getting the play from him. If you
find yourself creating turnovers take an internal examination: Are you
listening when God is giving you direction? Are you taking time to
read His word to find the answer? Are you lining up on the path he has
set for you? It is when we decide not to listen, not take time in the
Word, or go our own way that we make mistakes. God has a game plan for
your life and it is his desire for you to be victorious. If your game
plan hasn’t been working go back to the drawing board. Talk it over
with God and let him give you a fresh vision of what your ___________
can be. If you are committing turnovers, go to God and own up to it.
Confess it and ask him to forgive you. But stop committing the same
turnovers. There is nothing more frustrating to a fan then seeing the
same mistake over and over. Don’t give the enemy an advantage. Become
a champion in Christ. Just as the consequences are greater, the
victories are so much sweeter.
