Crossfit - Day 10 - Leave Empty Philosophies and Lean on Christ
Begin your time with God in prayer.
Praise God for who He is. Confess any sin so that nothing blocks your fellowship with Him. Ask God to use the Spirit and the Word to transform your life.
Let God’s Word penetrate your head and your heart.
"Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world, the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does, comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever." I John 2:15-17
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6
· How have you been trying to live both in Christ and in the world?
· How has this affected your spiritual growth? Where would you be today had you chosen to love God and not the things of this world?
· Since our spiritual strength and fullness is in Christ alone, what will it take for you to trust in the Lord with all your heart today? Ask God to show you every time you try to lean on your own understanding. Trust Him to make your path straight as you acknowledge Him in every area of your life.
Father, I praise You that I can trust You and Your Word with all my heart. Forgive me for all the times I have leaned on my understanding instead of Yours. Forgive me for all the ways that I have loved the things of this world more than You. Help me to learn to love You above all else, lean on You, and live for You.
