Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales;
rather, train yourself to be godly. For physical training is of some value, but
godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life
and the life to come. 1Timothy 4:7&8 (NIV)
Physical training and spiritual training are placed side by side;
there must be things common to them. To make the most of physical training, you
need to make sure of a few things, Diet, exercise, rest, trainer, commitment
- Diet: feeding well is required to make the most
of physical exercise. In the same way, you need good spiritual diet to train in
godliness. You must win yourself from spiritual milk, fizzy, whiskey, chocolate
- Exercise: Various aspect of you needs
stretching; faith, willpower, endurance, strength, flexibility
- Rest: Adequate rest is important to make the
most of physical training, so also is the importance of rest in spiritual
training. This could be physical rest or sleep after work or a mental rest in
God, trusting completely in His commitment to His promises regardless of
present physical conditions or prevailing circumstances.
Physical training doesn’t happen by default, in the same
way, you’ll have to be intentional about spiritual training. You must keep
pushing the limits of bodily inertial and mental fatigue; when you do, expect
the body to push back but hold your ground and be resilient.
There is a bigger and stronger you on the inside yearning to
emerge, don’t hold back. I see you rise above all limits.
