Unlocking Your Potential as an Athlete

Published on February 06, 2023


Every good athlete wants to become better. It’s almost as if it is ingrained in them and what sets them apart: A good athlete wants to be the absolute best version of themselves on and off the field.

Because we are all created in God’s image (Gen. 1:27), we each have the potential for greatness hidden within us. The question is, will we seek God to unlock that potential?

Think of it this way: Our potential is a protected lock and key box with a God-shaped hole. His key is the only one that can fully unlock it and release what He has stored for us. He created that lock and key box when He knitted you together in your mother’s womb. (Psalm 139:13). Each gift that He wanted you to have, He placed in that box. Sometimes we try to unlock the box ourselves or force a foreign key into the slot, but nothing opens. God is the only One who can open this for us. John 16:13 says the Spirit of Truth guides us into all the truth. This is where we have the chance to trust Him in His guidance.  

What would happen if we chose to allow God to turn the key in His timing? What would happen if we stopped trying to force things to happen on our own and instead just trust?

The greatest success any person on this earth can experience is the success that comes from obeying God.
