Read Ephesians 6: 10-17 - use every piece of God's armor.
Always keep on praying. 1 Thessalonians 5:7 (TLB)
Christopher L. Scott comes from Washington. He has made many visits to various practitioners for his back pain, but nothing was working. This time, the doctor pointed out that while sitting on the exam table. He was slumping over. He told me this was part of the problem, and that if he had poor posture all day, he would never get better.
Christopher couldn't instantly fix 30 years of bad posture, but he resolved to try. He monitored his posture throughout the day, while working at his desk, cooking, and walking. Week by week, his back pain decreased. It really was that simple! Physical therapy, massages, and medication didn't help him, but maintaining good posture made all the difference. After a month, most of his back pain was gone.
Just as Christopher needed to focus on his posture throughout the day to strengthen his back, what if we all focused on God and scripture throughout the day to strengthen our faith? We can memorize a verse and recite it in our minds. We can talk to God about what is going on and what we are struggling with. Scripture is always available, and God is ready to talk whenever we want to.
Prayer: Dear God, help us to remember that you are our source of life and that we will be rejuvenated if we stay connected to you throughout the day, in Jesus' name. Amen.
