Someone asked me the other day if the Wod With God was a CrossFit thing? No, I replied. It is something that we wanted to incorporate into our website. The Wod With God was intended to strengthen people in their spiritual walk. We talk about strength all day in the gym but if we are weak spiritually that is more important than the physical. For those of you who have noticed that this hasn’t been posted as frequently than it had originally started, the only excuse is poor time management. The error is in becoming so busy and forgetting what matters most.
I beleive now more than ever we are under attack and the only way to overcome is to stay close to the Lord. We become complacent and go through the motions and that is when are most vulnerable. If our day starts out ill equipped and not mentally prepared to face the obstacles we face at work or home we will find our self defeated and frustrated.
I know people talk to me about how they prepare for their wod through out the day. After the wod is posted they start strategizing. What shoes to wear, what shorts do I squat in better, what to eat for lunch, how much water to drink and so on. What if we prepared our hearts and mind the same way everyday in the Truth. Satan is very subtle and knows when we are most vulnerable. One of the strongest tools he has in how micromanaged our lifes have become and how little time we spend with the Lord because everything else takes precedence.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Ephesians 6:13
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Ephesians 6:10
