Keeping Your Grind

Leg day. In the age of physical fitness, we all have become accustomed to the jelly like feeling our entire lower half feels right after working our leg muscles to complete fatigue.

It’s a feeling that makes you ask yourself over and over again “what in the world was I thinking?”.

Life has the ability to give us that same jelly-like feeling. Life has a way of making us so tired, so anxious, so discouraged, so fearful, that we ask ourselves “what in the world am I doing here?” And we doubt our ability to continue on.

There is a comforter that is better than any jacuzzi, massage, or stretches that we could ever do to ease the pain of muscle fatigue.

He is the Holy Spirit. His job is to remind us of the promises that God has made us in times where we want to quit, and then impregnant us with the power to see those promises manifest right before our eyes.

He reminds us of promises like:

“The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; He delivers them out of their trouble.[1]

“Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place[2].”

“The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged[3].”

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: And he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: For the Lord upholdeth him with his hand[4].”

“Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint[5].”

These are but a few of the promises that the Holy Spirit will remind us of that will cause the fatigue from life to turn into strength beyond our imagination.

May the promises of God keep you, and may the Holy Spirit be the strength you need to keep your grind.
