At the beginning of my exercise DVDs runs the promo that says, "Decide. Commit. Succeed." In order to reach my goals of getting healthy and fit, I have to make decisions and a commitment to daily activity and choices. This is true for getting physically fit, but we also need to decide and commit to God for spiritual success!
We can train our physical bodies, but we also have to train ourselves for the spiritual battles and challenges that we will face. We first have to decide that we want to follow God, then we need to commit our lives to Him. Once we have committed ourselves to God, we can train by reading and contemplating His Word, by talking to God through prayer, and by learning from and fellowship with other believers. As we spiritually train, we can know that our success will be eternal glory with God!
Decide to follow God. Commit your life to Him. Train for spiritual success!
Thank You for being my Rock that I can commit to and follow. Help me to continue to train in Your way and live my life for You. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
