“Extremely popular with both men AND women. One of the few programs that helps preserve and even build muscle mass while losing fat.” That only one program and you could find more without looking very far at all. All weight loss and all muscle building programs only work if you commit to the plan. Sounds like our Reformers Unanimous Program! I know a man his name is Mike and he helps people build muscle mass and lose weight; I asked him when his busiest time of the year was and he said after the first of the year. New Year and many decide to get rid of that extra weight they put on. Many will choose to devote themselves to some physical routine to strength their body, they will pay money spend their time to accomplish their goal, while letting their spiritual mind become weaker and weaker. Nothing is wrong with losing weight and building body mass if we don’t sacrifice our spiritual man in the process. Timothy put it this way;
1Timothy 4:8 For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.
Don’t sacrifice your prayer and Bible time for weight loss; but instead commit yourself to becoming strong in the Lord so that when the problems of the day come you’ll know how to handle them.
Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
What will it be weights or God’s Word? Three times in chapter 31 we read these words “Be strong and of a good courage:“
Deuteronomy 31:7 And Moses called unto Joshua, and said unto him in the sight of all Israel, Be strong and of a good courage: for thou must go with this people unto the land which the LORD hath sworn unto their fathers to give them; and thou shalt cause them to inherit it.
Deuteronomy 31:23 And he gave Joshua the son of Nun a charge, and said, Be strong and of a good courage: for thou shalt bring the children of Israel into the land which I sware unto them: and I will be with thee. As Moses was coming to the end of his life he knew that it was time for Joshua to continue to lead the Israelites into the promise land. He tells him three times be strong and of a good courage; don’t be afraid for God will not fail you neither will He forsake you. You know what? The same can and will happen to each of us if we only put our trust in the Lord and know that the Lord will not forsake us. Too many times we get our mind on the here and now and we forget that the Lord will never forsake us. We must choose to pursue spiritual strength as we exercise ourselves in prayer, Bible reading, study and daily godly living. It’s a brand new week press the up button and get off at the top.
