PreGame–Prayer and Worship
GAME PLAN Series Blurb: Discovering God’s plan for our lives can be frustrating. Some have described it as the most challenging experience of the Christian life. But it shouldn’t be. It doesn’t have to be. After all, God is the preeminent communicator. He created communication. And as your heavenly Father, He wants you to know His will for your life. In this 6-part series, we will explain, in the most practical ways imaginable, how to discover and embrace God’s game plan for your life.
Pre-Game: One of the great downfalls of any sports team could be called the Flaw of Impatience–not waiting on or trusting the coach to set up the perfect conditions for success. I must be on the alert against the sin of impatience. The great fault of the prodigal son was not the request “Give me,” but the impatience with which he sought what ultimately would become his, “Give me now.” He could not wait for the father’s time, the father’s plan; it had to be his time and that time was right now! How often I repeat the same mistake with my heavenly Father! Mountain View will start off 2017 with a PreGame Plan–seeking the heart of our Coach for direction in 2017.
