If you fail under pressure, your strength is too small. Pro. 24:10 NLT
The old is past! Its the time for new beginnings! Everyone is excited! New Years resolutions are initiated… or at least being planned… or at least being thought about… or… at least we are hoping to get around to it soon!
You hope to get “FIT” this year! Exercise and changing eating habits won’t come easy. There are a lot of pressures that will keep you from reaching your goals… Especially if your goal is to draw near to the Lord… to get your self Spiritually Fit! You are all too aware that the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak!
Like any other fitness program… Failure to get Spiritually Fit is often linked to trying to do to much too fast. This year… Rather than reading a whole chapter, can you read one passage of Scripture a day? Rather than praying one hour a day, can you do 60 seconds? Rather than spending all your time in church… can you force yourself to attend for 90 minutes on Sunday morning? Rather than giving, "all ya got"… can you give… O, say… 10 percent of your net to Kingdom business?
Get stronger by starting out small… and then work your way up? You can do it beloved! As it is written… “Those who wait upon the Lord will renew their STRENGTH”.
