A lot of Christians think their biggest battle is against sin. It isn't. The biggest struggle we face is over the issue of trust. Do we trust God? If we do—if we really know deep down in our hearts that His will for us is good—then a lot of our other issues become less intense. We can follow Him more quickly and enthusiastically if we really trust Him. We can endure difficult trials if we know His love is with us in the midst of them. We can hold on to hope if we trust in His faithfulness and His sovereignty over every circumstance of our lives. If trust is in place, our other "biggest" battles become much smaller.

I believe that's what Satan went after in Eden—humanity's trust in God's character, His love, and His word. And I believe that's still what he goes after in your life and mine. Don't get caught up focusing on sin or anything else in your life. Focus on God—His goodness, His faithfulness, His love. When He is our greatest preoccupation, other concerns preoccupy us a lot less.
