Tim Tebow: ‘We Get to Trust an Unknown Future to a Known God’
By Allyson Vannatta, Senior Writer
Outspoken Christian Tim Tebow shared a powerful message on his social media about trusting God through life’s hardest moments.
“When we’re Bible believers, we look at the Bible and we see a lot of the heroes, a lot of times they truly were wounded deeply before they were ever used greatly,” he explained.
“So maybe you’re going through a time in your life where you feel like you’ve just been wounded greatly. It hasn’t been your year, hasn’t been your day — you just don’t feel like this is your time,” the former Gator’s quarterback continued. “But this could be your time for learning. This could be your time for growing. This could be your time for adapting. This could be the time that is a test for you, but tomorrow it gets to turn into a testimony.
Tebow points out that these hard moments help lead us to a better future.
“Because you never know what God is doing with your life. You never know what he is preparing you for. So many times in the Bible, when we look at the heroes, there were times in their life where if they stopped, if they quit, if they said, ‘No, God, I’ve had enough,’ then they would have missed out on the most impactful, most influential times of their life.”
The newlywed encouraged listeners to push through, to not quit and to find out what God has in store for them after the storms subside.
“Maybe that is the next step for you. Maybe that is tomorrow. Maybe that is next week, maybe that is next year. But when we quit, we will never know what we missed out on. We will never know what’s in store for us.”
To wrap up, Tebow reminded his followers how much God loves us.
“Because maybe that breakthrough is coming tomorrow. Maybe it’s next year. Maybe you have a little bit more time going through a hard time in your life. But I can tell you this: We get to trust an unknown future to a known God, because we know how much he loves us. We know what he did for us in sending his son. He gave his best for us.”
“When we remember that, then we can have trust in the character of our God, cause we know how much he loves us. That’s how we get through the tough times.
Tebow says to hold on to this truth in our time of need, “Right where you’re at, whatever you’re doing, whatever you’re going through, he loves you. You were enough for his son to die on the cross, that’s how much you’re loved. Hold onto that in your time of need.”

This Super Bowl Sunday, remember the team you’re on. The team of Jesus! The team of faith, hope, love, peace and joy. Thank you @FreshLife and @LeviLusko for having me. Here are some clips of today’s message around the miracle of Jesus feeding the 5,000. • Clips 1 & 2: Matthew 14 – Your emotions say you may have done enough, you’re upset, you’re tired, or there’s nothing else you can do. But, we get to follow our convictions. We get to follow our convictions that tell us we can bring faith, hope & love to people every day, every moment, even when our emotions say we don’t have to. • Clips 3 & 4: John 6:1-14 – I know there are so many times in our lives where we don’t feel like we have a lot to give to Jesus. We don’t have a lot of energy, we don’t have enough money… But I truly believe it doesn’t matter how much you give to Jesus, its the act of giving of yourself and your time to Jesus that truly matters. He is our MVP, and we just have to give Him the ball.
