The first law in playing board games is that it is in turns. A life of the miraculous is a turn by turn equation. God made a move by sending Jesus to die for our sins, and man must make a move before salvation takes place. When you play a game of cards, it’s a game of mental skill; but you cannot play out of turn. In this law of life, God doesn’t play out of turn. He makes a move and waits for you to make a move.
Sometimes, your move is the confession of the Word and God’s move is to give you a revelation. Your move may be to get out of your house in the morning and write an application. Sometimes, your move is to pray or read a devotional material like this. God has moved; the question is – What is your own move? For some people, it’s an instruction to sow a special seed. The instruction is God’s move, and when you make the move of obedience to that instruction, God will make another move.
The only way the devil will not move against you is for you to move when God moves. And the law in games is that it is an offence to move out of turn. God does not forgive anybody until they repent of their sins. So, when you repent, you receive forgiveness. There are people that know everything about salvation, but they are still procrastinating their repentance. God moved about salvation over 2000 years ago, and some people have died and are in hell, while intending to move.
When you are reading the Bible, it presents God’s move and your own move. If you’ve not made your own move, don’t expect God to move again. It’s a law of responsibility.
PRAYER: Dear Father, show me the next move to make and help me to see it clearly in Jesus’ name.
