Jeremy Lin Has ‘Full Faith’ in God’s Sovereignty Amid First Season with Hawks

9467AA86-34B7-4FB1-8E8D-124318FF2D2FChristian athlete Jeremy Lin, who was recently traded by the Brooklyn Nets to the Atlanta Hawks, said that while he “doesn’t fully understand God’s intentions,” he has “full faith” in His sovereignty.

In an email sent to his digital prayer group last week titled, “Jeremy Lin Prayer Requests 39,” the former Nets guard asked his followers to pray for him amid the transition.

“Please pray for me as I’m embarking on a journey to live a more Spirit-filled life, as well as to hear from God more often,” he wrote. “Also hoping for continued health over my body, smooth transition into Atlanta and quick acclimation with my teammates.”

He added, “In many ways, I don’t understand what God’s intentions are through the trade and in bringing me here to Atlanta, but I have full faith in his sovereignty!”

In Juy, ESPN reported that the Hawks acquired Lin from the Brooklyn Nets for a 2020 second-round draft pick and the rights to 2016 second-round draft pick Isaia Cordinier.

At the time, Lin, who sustained a season-ending knee injury in the first game of last season, took to Instagramto post a picture of himself wearing his new team’s uniform.

Lin included a Bible verse from Proverbs 16: 3 along with the picture which reads, “Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.”
