|Using Your Strong Arm
Warren Spahn was a winner. He was one of the greatest pitchers and was inducted into the baseball hall of fame. He pitched until he was 40 years old. When asked the secret to his success, Warren Spahn said:
- Don’t baby yourself. Push yourself to the limit.
- Maintain goals of excellence. Never do less than your best.
- Use your God-given abilities to break through your fatigue factor. God gives you a second wind: break through to that other level.
- Be willing to sacrifice for the goal you’re after. Be willing to sacrifice lesser things for the greater things. If you’re trying to have it all now, you’ll never have anything.
- Think straight.
Let’s take a lesson from Warren Spahn. Learn to think spiritually so you can release the God-given power that’s in your life through your thought life. Paul instructed Timothy in 2 Tim 4 to, “keep your head in all situations, endure hardship.” Say this quote with me as we determine this week to walk by faith: “I will not be defeated because I will never quit! God expects me to be tough-minded and I am! God will turn my worst times into my best times!”
