OK, I rarely play video games. I simply don’t have time…
However, after downloading the little $3 game on my Nook I found myself HOOKED! It was a fun little game that will drive you crazy!
Now, I beat the game – it’s over (my wife is happy). Yet I think about it a lot – because it is truly, even if simple, a game of strategy. Strategy may be important on a $3 video game, but it is crucial when it comes to our Christian walk.
Strategy is your planning ahead for a desired outcome in the future.
You Need a Strategy
Are you evangelizing? You need a strategy.
Are you starting a church, hosting a conference, or setting up a ministry? You need a strategy.
Whatever goals you may have, a strategy is necessary! In our coaching and counseling practice we give assignments based on a desired outcome, and then we pursue the outcome with a defined strategy. Also, being able to become flexible in your approach, while keeping an eye on your outcome, is the key to success. Your strategy may change from time to time, yet never is the outcome forgotten or ignored.
The Key is Feedback
No failure – only feedback. When you release the little bird towards your targeted PIG – you sometimes will fail to destroy the target. Then the little pig laughs at you, you get upset, and waste a few more hours to defeat the game.

My point? When you fail the first, second, or one hundredth time, you never go into guilt, fear, or shame. There is only feedback – feedback is key to help strategize your next move.
So, in our Christian walk we should also allow our “failures” and shortcomings to simply become feedback. Then we can apply a strategy to obtain success for our life and others.
Are you praying for the sick?
Are you delivering people from demonic bondage?
Are you witnessing to your neighbor or co-worker?
Are you raising children?
Have you started a business?
In life you surely need to have a strategy, from a place of love, and then be willing to learn and try again when failure shows up. Always remember that failure is only failure when you accept it and give up.
Feedback is the key to an effective strategy!
So, to all my Angry Bird fans – be angry and sin not (cursing a digital pig could be sinful 🙂 ), and remember that strategy is based on love and feedback! I bless you all today and pray that your goals, dreams, and assignments are fulfilled by the mighty hand of God.

IT IS TIME TO PRESS THROUGH!
A Word by Dana Jarvis
Do not wait for the tide of your situations to turn, but keep contending for what God has promised to you. You face a choice right now which is contend for the ground that God has given to you through His Word of promise, or hold back.
Do not give place to fear or hesitancy that would keep you from stepping up into the power of this warrior anointing he is releasing. It is time to press through! Don’t settle for less than what Jesus has already paid for. Don’t put up with less than what Your Father has appointed for you.
