Devo: (Did not share during BC )
You’re Built For Opposition – Another great devo from wireformen.com which I give thanks and credit to Uncle Rico for sharing.
The one who conquers, I will grant him
to sit with me on my throne—Revelation 3:21
Ever been in the middle of something tough, prayed for rescue, and heard . . . nothing? Ever questioned God, in frustration, “Why won’t you answer?”
Could it be that God doesn’t always answer because, sometimes, he wants us to stay right where we are and learn, there, how to fight? Could it be that God sometimes allows trouble and pain to train us, to build our maturity, to make us more reliable conduits of his love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control? We often consider trouble and pain as unnecessary, to be avoided, hindrances to ease and happiness. Might it make more sense to consider trouble and pain as opposition, as a mountaineer views the pitch and the altitude, or as a linebacker views the block and the fake?
We aren’t meant to be men who avoid opposition, numb it or deny it. We aren’t meant to run from battles, to hide and to let others fight. We’re built for opposition. Truthfully, we’d probably wither without it. We must see it, though, for what it is: “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12). Our struggle is against being lured into selfishness, indifference, impatience, rage, resignation, or sin in the face of problems at work, or in our finances or relationships or families. These are epic struggles—battles worthy of any man
Conditions: Felt good to me
10 pax (should have been more…stupid fartsacks) had to endure another flop of a Q by YHC. And thank you to everyone who showed up not just to GOAT but all the other AO’s. We all can agree getting up at butt crack of dawn to get beat down isn’t always the most appealing thing to do but we do it! Throughout the time I have been in F3, I have had the pleasure of meeting some amazing HIM’s who have absolutely pushed me to do better and go for things I never had much confidence in doing. But I say this because, you never who you are positively affecting and pushing to do better in life so it’s important that we all continue to At least make the effort and show up!
