All who Trust in Him // Psalms 18:30

1746_640x640

As humans we always find ourselves looking for something we can trust in. Whether that be people in our lives, our savings accounts, or our “escape” to our Crossfit gyms. The reality is, that ultimately that only person we can truly trust is God Himself. Don’t get me wrong, the people, back up plans, and ways to express our worship to Him are all gifts from God. The problems arise when we start chasing of the gift instead of the Giver.

You see, God has given us amazing people in our lives to HELP us grow closer to Him. God blesses us with the finances to make wise choices to create a security for ourselves and our families. God blesses us with the love for Crossfit, Olympic lifting, or just fitness in general as an outlet for the daily stresses of life as well as overall wellness. Where satan comes into the picture is when we start to rely on those people in our lives to be our god. Where we start overstressing and being consumed with where every single penny is going and being such a crazy penny pincher that your family suffers. When we start to rely on Crossfit to define who we are as people. How quickly we finished the workout if we beat our friend, did I lift more than him/her, blah blah blah…

From the beginning of time, satan has been trying to taint the free gifts from God, and take the worship from God by tricking us into worshipping the gift. God is the giver of every passion, every blessing, and every love that we experience in our lives. Our duty is simply to love the giver of the gift more than the gift itself. If we can manage that, there is no end to what God will bless us all with…

Love wins… Grace wins…
