Our Daily Manna December 12, 2017: ODM devotional – Fitness: Shine Your Inside! Dignify Your Outside!

Topic: Fitness: Shine Your Inside! Dignify Your Outside! [Tuesday, December 12, 2017]

Basic Scripture: Hebrews 5:12-14; 1 Timothy 4:7-11

Some spend billions of money on beauty each year. Beauty product factories are getting richer, while people consume drugs worth 2 billion Naira ($5,476,760.00) annually just to keep fit! Yet, the principal element of glamour which is cheaper than a lipstick, more powerful than a blow dryer and as vital as our well-being as your next breath, is neglected daily.

This neglected beauty and health product given freely by nature to man is physical exercise! Carrying out regular exercises, not only increase energy muscle tone, bone strength, cardiovascular endurance, lung capacity, flexibility, circulation and metabolism, but it decreases body fat, blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Exercising and keeping fit can also reduce depression. New findings also indicate that exercise also increases creativity. So when you are sometimes dry and not inspired, het into exercise to resume the creative system. THAT MEANS EXERCISE CAN BRING THE GENIUS IN YOU! Also, regular exercises and physical activity have been confirmed to reverse the effects of aging and increase life expectancy.

For each hour you invest in exercise, you gain two or more in longevity. Just as physical activity can prevent early death, so regular  spiritual activities such as fasting, daily Bible reading, praise and worship, joining an evangelism (soul winning) club, visiting hospitals or orphanages, daily meditations exercises on the Word of God , learning to hear the God regularly, running from sin, etc, can prolong your level of grace anointing. There are even times trials and temptations are exercises allowed by God to train your spiritual muscles and tone (Heb.12:11). 1 Timothy 4:7 sums it all, that despite the great advantage of physical and mental exercise, “Exercise thyself rather to godliness.” That means, strive to keep fit spiritually!

Note: Take good care of your body! It is the only place you have to live in on this planet, then make sure the outside is a good reflection of the inside of you! As 2017 ends, shine your inside (spiritual exercise)! Dignify your outside (physical exercise)! Pray now!

Prayer Points: Take a song of worship as led…

1. Repent from any laxity or dryness.

2. Any arrow of spiritual death sent into my life and ministry, burn in Jesus name. Pray any other(s) now! Pray about today now!

Note: Do regular physical and spiritual exercises. Keep your life busy!
