God is All In
“I will praise You because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful, and I know this very well.” –Psalm 139:14
Have you ever really put any serious thought into the creation of the universe? Just look around, every very fiber of our existence and everything that we see is a result of God’s great work. The event of God’s creation is bigger than the World Series, the World Cup or even the Super Bowl.
In sports, it is evident when we go “All In” because of our passion, work ethic and determination. When we surrender ourselves to be all in to our sport, we are saying that we are going to give 100% of our effort to securing a win for the team, coach and ourselves.
For us, being all in is a decision, but God is always all in for us. The creation of the whole universe is evidence of God’s passion, work ethic and determination. God was all in when He created us to give Him glory. He loved us from the beginning and gave us a way to have a relationship with Him by giving His only Son to die on a cross for our sins.
There is no doubt that God’s passion, love and forgiveness towards us all in. The question remains, are you “All In” for Him?
How is the creation of the universe evidence of God’s love for mankind?
How does your love and passion for your sport compare to God’s love and passion for you?
How will you compete differently with the knowledge that God loves you no matter how you perform as an athlete?
“God, Your creation is beautiful. Thank you for not holding back when you created this world. Thank you for creating me and loving me with the same passion and determination. Help me to compete with the knowledge that You love me and created me for the purpose to glorify You. In Jesus’ Name I pray, amen.”
