Jeremiah 29:13 (ESV)
You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.
Every athlete understands the concept of dedication. It’s that “all in” mentality of pursuing a goal with everything you have. You commit the time and make sacrifices to make it happen.
Even outside the world of sports, we’re all dedicated to something. It could be a spouse, a relationship, a job, a cause, a goal or an idea. Whatever it is, our dedication is reflected in how we manage our time, our money, and in what we watch or read.
As a believer, though, our goal every day is to be totally dedicated to the things God is dedicated to. Through time spent reading His Word and connecting with Him in prayer. We can be focused on loving and serving others and getting to know God in deeper and more intimate ways.
Through a dedicated relationship with Him, all other commitments in life are transformed. Everything you do, say and see will be done through a different worldview. That paradigm shift in your mind will help you view all things as Christ sees them—cultural and social issues, family, occupation, leisure, whatever it may be. It’s through that lens that your life will be forever changed as you pursue Him with all you have.
What are you most dedicated to in your life?
Dear Lord, You know our heart and our every thought. You know in what and in whom our deepest dedication lies. We pray that through Your power, we would throw aside anything keeping us from pursuing You with everything we have. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
