6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God
2 Timothy 2:15 – Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
This morning, I was at the gym, and I began to think of how when I used to get in the gym every day, like clock work. The workout was easier. I didn’t get tired as quickly. I didn’t make excuses of reason not to go. Then it hit me. This is how our praying and studying the word of God works. The more we pray, the easier it becomes to pray. We will wake up, ready to talk to God. We will be excited to hit our knees and speak to our heavenly Father. We will find ourselves spending more time praying than what we intended to. When we start studying, the word becomes alive to us. We are excited to read and spend time in the word. Our spiritual walk is like a muscle. The more we work at it, the better and stronger it becomes. So, treat it that way. Get stronger in the Lord, so your spiritual workout becomes easier.
