How much time do you spend on exercising or working out during the week? Strengthening your muscles, toning your body, either for yourself or for the world to see?
Exercise and working out is a good stress relief, and there’s nothing wrong with keeping our bodies in shape. But, when we’re not able to go to the gym anymore, and we’re not able to exercise or workout like we used to, then all we have are those weak muscles that does not do us as much good as before.
How much time do you spend reading the word of God? How much time do you spend with God? How much time do you spend strengthening your faith?
There is a strength that can’t compare to working out in the gym. If we are not reading God’s word, what good is our strength? We are nothing without God. When we are weak, God is strong.
It’s time to strengthen your mind, your body, your faith. Get in shape, and exercise on God’s word. Read his word, there is power in it!
I Timothy 4:7-8 (KJV) – but refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness. For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.
Psalm 6:2 (KJV) – have mercy upon me, O Lord; for I am weak: O Lord, heal me: for my bones are vexed.
II Corinthians 13:9 (KJV) – for we are glad, when we are weak, and ye are strong: and this also we wish, even your perfection.
Hebrews 4:12 (KJV) – for the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
