Strength Building 101:
“Because He is at my right hand, I will never be shaken.” Psalm 16:8
The right hand = strength in the Bible.
So, if I want to build spiritual muscle, I need to make sure the Lord is my strength.
“…the joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10
“The Lord is my strength and my shield. My heart trusts in Him and I am helped.” Psalm 28:7
How do I make sure the Lord is my strength? I do these simple exercises:
1. Deep knee bends, humbling myself before the Lord in prayer.
2. Lifting my Bible every day and crunching through some verses.
Like with all exercises, repetition is key, so I try to practice obeying what I read over and over again. The more I do it, the easier it gets to do.
Here’s a great starter verse to practice every day, several times a day:
“Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us.” ~~ Psalm 62:8
Doing these simple exercises every day builds strong faith, and helps me to do the first part of that verse:
“Trust in Him at all times….” Psalm 62:8
at ALL times.
when I’m scared
and when I’m sad
when things are awesome
and when I’m mad.
