Hebrews 5:14 “But strong meat belongs to them those who are fully mature, those who by reason of use have their senses “exercised” to discern life and death”
We are barely a week into the new year. I hope you took advantage of the Holy Spirits offer and signed up for your free membership to the “Spirit Gym”. The price is free, the cost is your time to exercise that divine portion of your being. Its better to start early every morning before “things” derail your day.
1 Timothy 4:7 “But refuse profane and foolish myths. Instead, “exercise” in the ways of godliness”
As this becomes a pattern each day you will meet others who have joined. You will see many different body types. Some spirits are overdeveloped (puffed up) in one area while another area is completely ignored. The fruit of these workouts is “self-control”. Your faith is strengthened so that your “inner man” stands strong and guides your feelings to be used exclusively by the Holy Spirit. Everyone is offered a “free membership” to this “place of preparation” but few use it and are available each day for this kind and quality of “workout” that makes us fit to be “chosen”.
Hebrews 12:11 “Now no chastening [exercise] for the present seems to be joyous, but painful, nevertheless afterward it yields peace and the fruit of righteousness to those who are “exercised” thereby”
When you first start your spirit workouts you will experience some pain as you are using parts of your being that may have been dormant for some time. If you stick with it over time your inner man will be strengthened, and the sovereignty of the spirit will extend to every part of your being as you find that you can do “all things” through Christ who “Strengthens You”. (Phil 4:13). If you find at any point that you are struggling, don’t be shy to ask for the help of a “personal trainer”. These are women and men that have been at the “spirit gym” a long time and have been chosen by the “Gym Owner” to help you fully and properly develop your “spiritual being”.
