Prepared For Action
1 Peter 1:13
“Prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed.”
I try to exercise so that I am physically prepared for the demands of my daily life. But, Lord, I need help to prepare my mind and heart for the requirements of the spiritual life. I read Your Word and carry those lessons with me, but I admit I am still very weak. I face trials and still rely on my own strength rather than on the mightiness of Your power. I lose faith in Your ability to overcome my difficulties.
Lord, help me to truly be prepared. I need to go beyond head knowledge and claim a heart courage. Will I let myself fall back into Your arms when I feel weak, certain that You will catch me? Today, I am prepared to try.

Echoing the prayer. What a blessing that we can KNOW, without any doubt whatsoever, that He is ALWAYS with us and that He only wants the very, very best for us.
Yes… where would I be, I oftentimes think, if it wasn’t for Him?
That’s a great reminder of the need for us to keep spiritually fit 🙂
Definitely. Even Paul talks about the need for spiritual exercise being far more profitible than physical. God bless you Jessica!
