In continuing our lesson from yesterday (August 10th), there are 4 additional keys I would like to share with you to help you in creating a successful, winning day.  

  1. Keep a kingdom focus.  Col 3:1 “If you then be risen with Christ seek those things which are above…set your affection on things above,  not on things on the earth.”  The Living Bible reads in Col 3:2-3 “Let heaven fill your thoughts; don’t spend your time worrying about things down here.  You should have as little desire for this world as a dead person does.  Your real life is in heaven with Christ and God.” We’re passing through and on our way to heaven.  We’re serving and pleasing our King in all that we do.
  2. Take Holy Spirit rejuvenation breaks throughout the day.  I know we have commitments and jobs, however at least twice a day for 15 minutes get alone and invite the Holy Spirit to renew you, energize you and give you kingdom thoughts.  Pray in the Holy Spirit – sing in the Spirit.  Enjoy Him.
  3. At some point – morning, noon or evening – get some exercise.  Release stress build up, increase circulation and improve your overall health.  You do know Jesus walked everywhere.  He used a donkey only once. 
  4. The only person that can determine your emotional well being each day is you.  People and things can only serve as a gauge to make us aware of where we are spiritually and emotionally.  Paul writes “Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might”.  Romans states “The love of God is in our hearts”.  Let’s choose the love walk.
