Today's Reading 2 Samuel:14-16
2 Samuel 15:2
Now Absalom would rise early and stand beside the way to the gate.
Absalom was an evil man, but he was passionate and determined to succeed. So he planned and strategized, then he would rise up early to put his plan into action.
If I want to succeed, especially in the things of The Lord, I must:
1. Have passion.
2. Plan and focus my passion (According to God's wisdom and leading).
3. Take action.
On your journey to health, you need passion to be healthy--to be motivated and inspired for the right reasons. Because your body is God's temple and you should care for it as such...
you need to plan how to be healthy--to eat healthier, move more, get rest, have healthy relationships and be a good steward of your resources...
and you need to practice being healthy. And God will help you...
Lord, light a passion in me to do your will and impact others for Your kingdom. Focus my energy and grant me wisdom to act according to Your truth that I may be successful in fulfilling Your plan and purpose for my life, including being healthy and honoring You with my body.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
