CONNECT FOUR

CONNECT FOUR

By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

Connect Four is a game where discs are dropped strategically into rows (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally) with the goal of getting "four discs in a row."
The object of the opponent is to try to "block" all attempts at doing so.
Repeatedly, the mission of movement is manipulated and the mind must be strategically reset in order to come out victor.
A game of employed strategy, much can be learned about the mind of one's opponent.
Hmmm ...
-----
The strategy of Satan bears a marked and strange similarity to the game "Connect Four."
Working to manipulate the mission and minds of God's elect, he works feverishly and fervently to upset a "solid row of four."
And while it may appear he, at times, has some success;
The stalwart, sovereign hand of God prevails and cannot be undone by a mind that's simply smaller than His own.

I'm holding a handful of discs and each one is hallmarked with the word "obedience."
Everytime I lay a "blood colored" disc of red in the slot ...
Satan attempts to lay a blue-colored disc to "block."
What shall I do ...
 But continue to let the discs fall where they will and trust God's hand to sovereignly line up the "four in a row" as He deems best.
The mind that knows your way, and my way,
has procured us with provisions and promises too magnificently marvelous to question.
The Master's mind ... is permanently and unalterably good.
It can be trusted.

Plink, plink, plink, plink.
The red discs fall and four in a row ...
 God is wonderfully able.
