This week’s declaration comes from 2 Corinthians 5:21 – I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Be sure to think on this and say it often. If you have an image of yourself that is not from God, it must be replaced with what He says about you. I absolutely love this confession and verse; because it always reminds me of God’s absolute goodness! There is nothing that we can do that will change the way that He sees us or His love for us. I thank God that His covenant with us is not based on our actions; but on His love for us. A great example of this is in Genesis chapter 20; when Abraham lied and said that Sarah was his sister, because he was scared and displayed cowardice behavior. In spite of Abraham’s behavior, God showed up to Abimelech in a dream; which resulted in Abraham not only getting his wife back; but also wealth. His prayer also wasn’t hindered; because he prayed for Abimelech & his nation so that the women wouldn’t be barren. God saw Abraham as righteous; and this was not determined by his behavior. Praise God!
Abraham might have had these character flaws in the beginning; but through God’s love and God seeing Him as righteous, Abraham’s behavior did eventually line up with how God saw him; because He began to see himself as God saw him. (This is a great place to shout Glory Hallelujah)!
Ok, I had not even planned to write that; but I’m sure someone will benefit from it. Now on to the exercise of the week. The plank exercise builds the core muscles (which includes the front & sides of your abs, back and butt muscles). It also strengthens your arm and chest muscles. It’s a great exercise! In the video, I show five variations of the plank, so select that one that works best for your body right now. I just thought about the wall plank. I should’ve added that. It’s great for anyone who has trouble getting down on the floor. If you fall into this category, just put your elbows on the wall, in front of your shoulders. Then walk your feet behind you and lean into your elbows. Be sure to pull your belly button into your spine and hold the exercise as long as you can.
Thank you for reading this post and watching the video! If you find it beneficial, please feel free to share. Have an excellent rest of your week and I’ll see you on the blog again soon!
This week’s affirmation is based on Zechariah 2:8: I am the apple of God’s eye! Be sure to meditate and speak this affirmation often. We’re working on renewing our minds to what the Lord says about us.
The exercise of the week is a bridge with hamstring curl, using the foam roller. It’s one of my favorite exercises because it strengthens the lower back, bottom (glutes) and back of legs (calves). You can pick up a half roam roller from Five Below or Walmart for as little as $5 or $8. Give it a try and let me know how it works for you!
Have an excellent Wednesday and I’ll see you on the blog again soon!!
This week’s verse and affirmation of the week is 1 Corinthians 13:8 – I believe love never fails. The exercise of the week is an isometric squat with calf raises. This exercises strengthens the back of the legs, glutes and thighs. Enjoy your weekend!
Hello All! ‘m a little late posting this week’s declaration; but it’s down below. Before you get to it, I wanted to share a testimony from today. My 6 year old son ran into the house this afternoon all excited exclaiming: “Mommy! Mommy! A group of people came and bought lemonade and brownies from us!! I was like woooowww!!! This was exciting to us; because my son had prayed for lots of customers at one time; and was declaring it. Well, I walked out on the front porch and I saw about ten or so people walking away from the lemonade stand. Their first customers today was a small family of a husband, wife and little kid. This kind couple purchased two cups of lemonade and two brownies; as well as tipped them $5. I have noticed that nearly everyday, someone always give them a $5 tip. I hope this little testimony encourages you to embrace and meditate on Mark 9:23.
This week’s declaration is based on Philippians 2:5 (KJV) –Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus. The exercise of the week is bird dog. It strengthens your lower back, glutes and core.
Great Morning Everyone!! This is the day that the Lord has made, and I WILL rejoice and be glad in it! This week’s exercise is the bridge using a small ball. This exercise strengthens your glutes, lower back and core. The verse and confession of the week is Isaiah 54:17- No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD. When you get this verse down deep in your heart, you will realize just how invincible and unstoppable you are. God’s word is the ABSOLUTE truth…..regardless of our circumstances. You may be dealing with a sickness. That’s a fact; however the truth is that by His stripes, you are healed (1 Peter 2:24). You may be dealing with lack…another fact. The TRUTH is that God will supply ALL of your needs according to HIS riches and glory. Meditate the word (Philippians 4:19). It’s the way that Joshua was instructed, in order to obtain success (Joshua 1:8). In Genesis, we can see that God spoke the opposite of what initially appeared. He saw darkness, but spoke light. We were made in His image and likeness; and are therefore to imitate Him. If you’re dealing with any darkness in your life, speak light (the word of God). Have an excellent day!!
If you feel like you need a massage; but can’t find the time to get to the LMT, then foam rolling is the way to go. It helps to get rid of muscle tightness and soreness. Give it a try! You can get them as low as $5; and they come in different sizes.
