We train for many different things in our lives. We can train for physical challenges, whether for enjoyment or to recover from setbacks. We can also train for mental challenges. We can study and prepare for tests and other learning tasks. We may think of these things as common sense or ordinary routines. We also need to think about building our spiritual lives!
We can build ourselves up in our faith. We can do this through studying God's Word, through learning with and from other believers, and through prayer. When we call on God and continue to communicate with Him through prayer, we can draw near to Him. We can keep ourselves protected in His love and we can find our Savior and eternal life in His plans for us. We can train ourselves in the ways of God, we can continue to talk to Him through prayer, and we can allow others to see the presence and power of God through our training and living!
Train hard by learning from God and praying hard, then allow others to see the results!
Thank You for teaching me and helping me to grow. Please continue to guide me and use my life as an example of Your presence and power. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
