WHAT IF I TOLD YOU LIFE IS JUST A BASEBALL GAME?
My entire childhood, I always wanted to play professional baseball; I would try to reenact Chipper Jones in my front yard hitting a walk-off home runs, made SportsCenter top 10 plays by myself, and hit so many wiffleballs on the roof I lost count. My entire childhood was wrapped around sports.
Here I am, 22 years old, and my life is still revolving around sports. No complaints here.
So you’re probably wondering, “How do life and a baseball game relate?” The Illustration will be set up below.
As I was reading a few weeks ago, Matthew 7:7 grabbed my attention. It says, “Ask and it shall be given to you; seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened.”
Pretty interesting verse, nothing life changing at first glance, but it has a nice flow to it… ask and I get it, seek and I find it, and knock and it opens. Seems like a relationship with God is pretty beneficial to me and I get what I want.
As I first read over this verse all I thought was, “God has my back!”
It wasn’t until God revealed this verse to me 3 more times within the next week that it really sunk in.
God makes so many promises to His believers throughout the Bible. Promises that if we believed, grasped, and lived by we would never worry a day in our life. God also calls us to take our part and pursue Him with our lives.
