Confession Of A God-Player

Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.
                                                   Psalm 127:1 (NIV)

My definition of a God-Player:
A God-Player is one who has put themselves in the role of God; they have made themselves the author and finisher of their life; one who has put his/her ideas, philosophies, opinions, etc. on the throne where God should be.

Growing up in a house of chaos and unstable temperaments left me with feelings of uneasiness and anxiousness. Not knowing the mood of the house day to day, left it difficult to develop emotional stability. And because I didn't like those feelings, I purposed to control everything I could concerning me. The only problem was, I didn't know me or what was best for me. I only knew what I didn't want-which was very interesting because that's what I kept getting.

The above scripture talks about unless we allow the Lord to have place in our lives, the things we do will be useless. Oh my brothers and sisters, how much time have I spent doing useless things. Whether it was dumbing myself down to be accepted by my peers, to thinking that stuff=security, or becoming an overachiever to drown out the nagging inner voice that was determine to say "You're not enough." Sounds familiar?

What I have learned through the Word of God is the importance of having a relationship with God. All the things that I felt I needed to do or have in order to feel accomplished or approved or validated, I found out He had already given it to me. Ephesians 1:4 says he has chosen us in him before the foundation of the world. Vs 6 says we are accepted in Him. Zechariah 2:8 says we are the apple of his eye. Everything I was laboring to get through people or things, I already had and didn't even know it. 

There is nothing more important than having a relationship with God; allowing Him to lead and guide us daily. When we go off on our on, we work hard. When we follow the leadership of God, we work smart. And believe me, there is a difference. Jesus says in John 10:10, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." A thief is anything or anyone who takes something that doesn't belong to them. We belong to God. We were created in His image for His purpose. Being a God-Player puts us in God's position-which makes us a thief because we are attempting to steal the throne. We must make a decision as to whether we are going to be God or allow God to be God. The choice is yours. Choose wisely. Be Blessed!

The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
