Identify the rivals

Had an awesome time this morning leading a bible study for coaches at North Paulding High School!!  Love my time there with those awesome leaders!  In our time this morning we talked about “identifying” the rivals in our lives.  Those things that steal our attention away from God being first.  I made the comment, whatever is in first in our lives is what we depend on to sustain us.  The problem with anything else being in that spot for you or I is that they will let us down.  It’s interesting to see how those rivals have changed in my life through the years…..baseball, marriage, kids, job, security, status, etc……They creep in as really good things but not things that can hold us, in fact we find ourselves clutching and holding on to them!!

Find your rival today and put it in it’s proper place and hold on to the Lord with everything you got!!!  When we hold on to Him tightly, we find ourselves “letting go” of other things!!!

Seek Him first!
