There are daily routines that help the body. Making sure we rest enough is important.
Making sure we have the proper nutrition is necessary. Making sure we have enough exercise and drinking plenty of water are key for good health. There are certain essential minerals and vitamins we need to have daily to ensure a healthy life.
So, it is with our inner man. Our spiritual life also needs a daily routine that ensures a healthy Spiritual Faith.
We must make sure We Rest on Jesus. He is our Sabath.
The term Sabath means day of rest. Day left for reflection and coming together in the presence of the Lord to bring our needs to him.
God had given the day of Sabath to the children of Israel. It was a day when no one was to work. They were to rest and to have time to think about the goodness of God.
The religious leaders had turned the day of Sabath to some type of ritualistic term. People were strapped with do ‘s and don’t s that were unnecessary. So, it is today. People are strapped to work and even to doing everything on the Lord’s day with little time to reflect on the Lord. Too much work and no rest makes a person stressed.
Jesus is our Rest – Sabath. So we rest on Him.
To have a healthy spiritual life we must also have daily meal plan. Yes spiritual nutrition. and plenty of living water.
Jesus answered, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to Me will never hunger, and whoever believes in Me will never thirst.
On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”
Exercise keeps us strong and regulates our energy and physical ability to function.
We must daily be in a place of exercising our faith. Trusting the Lord and walking in him.
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who approaches Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.
For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without workes is dead also.
Faith is essential in our walk. Like the minerals such as Iron and vitamins C and D. These help in healthy cell reparation, reproduction of the body cells and help our bodies stability. Faith is also powerful in Keeping us grounded in God’s Truth. It stabalizes our connection and relationship with the Lord.
Daily we need a dose of these vitamins and minerals. So we need the following in our Daily lives.
Vitamin C – Christ
