Stories about Olympic heroes are fresh in our mind. We witnessed impossible feats like a double amputee running in the same race as Usain Bolt. Media delved into the private lives of relatively unknown athletes and we embraced them and cheered them like they were blood relatives. Their gold medals were our gold medals. The closing ceremony left us wanting more. More miracles. More sportsmanship. More medals.
Besides the obvious talent level, what is it about an Olympic athlete that intrigues us? How are they different? Most of the post-victory comments were similar. ‘Years of hard work and many sacrifices brought me to this moment.’ But before years of hard work and sacrifice each one had to first determine their goal or their quest. Then they took on the mind of a champion.
You may not be an athlete at all, but God still wants you to think like a champion. You possess everything you need within your DNA to fulfill what God put you here to accomplish. Everything. It may take years of hard work and sacrifice but because you’re doing what you love, it won’t seem like a sacrifice at all.
Feel like you don’t have a lot of talent? Good. That’s right where God wants you. He will empower you to accomplish things you never thought possible. The same God who used a teenage boy named David to slay a giant named Goliath is available to you. David had the mind of a champion. Never doubting what he was capable of because God walked with him.
“I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Jesus Christ.” Philippians 3:14
