Leveling Up Takes Strategy
As a mom of four men, I’ve become familiar with video games. I am completely incapable of playing such games, but my boys have achieved some level of mastery. After limited observation, I’ve noticed the goal isn’t just to run through the gauntlet on one level quickly. There is always something to be picked up or learned at the current level that you will need at a later time. The first level might seem easy, but without that opportunity to develop skills, the game would be impossible to win. The same strategy that applies to virtual games can be applied in our lives.
Let’s move through life with foresight, and understand there is an opportunity to build skill and strength with every challenge. Never doubt that what seems a small or insignificant decision or gesture now may very well open a passageway or even empower us in the future.
Maybe you’re waiting tables as you work toward your degree, volunteering your time as an intern, or running a major company. Wherever you are, don’t miss the opportunities to do what is noble or the lessons that will help you in your next season.
And don’t allow yourselves to be weary or disheartened in planting good seeds, for the season of reaping the wonderful harvest you’ve planted is coming! Galatians 6:9 TPT
Life is a collection of seasons, and each new season adds a new level of training. Lovely one, no matter what season you’re in, this remains true: You are the daughter of a triumphant Warrior-King (Exodus 15:3).
Just as there is always something to be picked up in a video game that will help at a later time, we have a choice as warrior daughters to carry the sword of the Spirit. This sword allows us to enter every season with honor, virtue, courage, loyalty, and freedom from fear. Will you linger in your current season empty handed or will you strategically move forward as you wield the sword of our Warrior-King?
