How to Begin ~ Sunday Devotion
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. Proverbs 9:10 (NKJV)
“Where do I start?” “How do I begin?”
They’re the first questions someone asks when they learn of someone’s body transformation. I’m ready. I want that too! How do I get it?
But, if the approach was not first built on a foundation of faith, it will not last. And because you and I are unique, what works for me won’t work for you. Only the Lord, through the Holy Spirit and His Word, can give you the wisdom and understanding of YOUR body. It takes that individualized approach to know where to begin to develop a sustainable healthy lifestyle.
A foundation of faith provides wisdom and good judgment for your healthy living plan. God created you. He gave you a physical body. You can’t take Him out of the equation when it comes to your fitness. In fact, it’s where you must start. It’s how you must begin if you want to establish something that is sustainable.When you let the Lord guide your fitness, not only will you make sustainable progress but you’ll also grow closer to Him. #FaithAndFitness Click To Tweet
Instead of searching the internet and buying into the latest health trend, begin in God’s Word. Make time with the Lord your top priority each day. Learn what He says about you. Believe Him when He says you are fearfully and wonderfully made. Then be a good steward of your own body. Pause. Listen to your hunger and fullness cues and respond accordingly. Drink plenty of water. Get some fresh air every day and move a little. That’s how you begin. When you let the Lord guide your fitness, not only will you make sustainable progress but you’ll also grow closer to Him.
Action Step: Have you taken on a plan without first consulting the Lord and laying a foundation of faith? It’s not too late to pause and seek His guidance. In fact, you can’t afford to keep going without faith as your foundation. Whatever you’re trying to do will not last without Him.
