🎙Last week I was a guest on a podcast and was asked if I thought an unpolished college basketball player that thus far has fell significantly short of his potential would get drafted.

👍🏾My reply, was yes, despite his inconsistency, lack of polish and the fact that there were many times throughout the year where he looked like anything but an NBA talent he will still be a first-round pick.

🤔Why? Because the front office execs will look past his flaws and lack of experience and even the moments in which he looked more like a high school hooper than an NBA talent and see his raw talent.

📈They will trust in the process they have in place to transform the current college prospect into a polished pro.

🙌🏾 This process is nothing new, God has done this repeatedly, and has done this with both you and I. I know it’s hard for us to accept, because we see our flaws, our mistakes, and we hold on to the moments in which we are sinful, but God looked passed all of that and drafted us anyhow!

💭Power Thought: You think the Lakers were willing to give up a lot for AD? Check out the verses below! Not only are we God's first-round choice, if we fell back, "He'd sell off the whole world to get us back!"

📖Isaiah 43:1-4 (MSG) But now, God’s Message, the God who made you in the first place, Jacob, the One who got you started, Israel: “Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you. I’ve called your name. You’re mine. When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you. When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down. When you’re between a rock and a hard place, it won’t be a dead end—Because I am God, your personal God, The Holy of Israel, your Savior. I paid a huge price for you: all of Egypt, with rich Cush and Seba thrown in! That’s how much you mean to me! That’s how much I love you! I’d sell off the whole world to get you back, trade the creation just for you.
