Finally, if we are to be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might; we must get into our spiritual gym. I liken strength in the Lord with hitting the Gym…if we desire to get into shape or get healthier we are going to have to get on a regular exercise program and begin to monitor what we eat and how much we eat. Thus, it must become a lifestyle change. This is not a feel good change or a new year’s resolution change, which almost never works. It must be a 360 degree change in thought and habits.
As it is in the natural, so it is in the spiritual, we must continue to build our relationship with the Lord, we must continue to go to him in good and bad times and delight ourselves in him. We must continue to pray, study and read his word even when we don’t feel like it. As we do that we are actually getting our spirit man into shape. However, that too must become something that we do regularly; it must become a lifestyle change.
God Bless You
