4:4 (NIV), “that each of you should learn to control your own body in a way
that is holy and honorable”
You should be feeling the positive effects
of your new routine by now. If you’ve not exercised in a while, you now know
that you can do it…you CAN incorporate some level of exercise into your daily
routine. On the days when the enemy says,
“there is no time”, “you’ll feel worse if you push yourself” and all the
other lies he fills your head with, you know differently. One of the fruits
of the Holy Spirit is self-control so you know, as it says in today’s verse,
you CAN control your own body.
God, thank you for creating me in your
image. Thank you that you created my body in such a way that I am able to do all
that you have called me to. Help strengthen me in the area of discipline as I
improve my health. Lord, I pray for a desire to exercise even after this
challenge has ended. In Jesus’ name…Amen.
