When God is in to Games

This is a message that calls us all to enter into the most dramatic adventure of all times - an adventure that far surpasses the reckless expediations of the most ambitious player. It's a game that will claim your entire world of existence. God etched these questions upon the tablets of our beings. He gives us these question marks that cause us to astrive for answers. Chess is a thought provoking game simply because it trains us to think several steps ahead before making a move.

What if before sitting down to a game of chess we knew that we knew that not only did God want us to win but he was going to help us and guide us for a potential win. Highlight areas on the board and leave us to challenge ourselves to victory. The sweeter the win is when we know we were challenged and a for sure win was not ours. God wants to blow our minds with what seems like a crazy plot that turns last minute heroics.
