Monday September 24 “I catch no glimpse of him.” Job 23:9 NIV
Sometimes you will not sense God’s presence. Those are difficult times. In the midst of trouble, Job said, “If I go to the east, he is not there; if I go to the west, I do not find him. When he is at work in the north, I do not see him; when he turns to the south, I catch no glimpse of him” (vv. 8-9 NIV). Job felt far from God. Yet in spite of his inability to feel God, he resolved, “He knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold” (v. 10 NIV). Difficult days demand decisions of faith. David said, “When I am afraid, I will trust in you” (Ps 56:3 NIV). When you can’t understand the ways of God, trust in the unchanging and loving character of God. Go through your Bible and make a list of the character qualities of God, and keep them on hand for tough days. One author writes: “My list reads like this: ‘He is still sovereign. He still knows my name. Angels still respond to His call. The hearts of rulers still yield at His bidding. The death of Jesus still saves souls. The spirit of God still indwells saints. Heaven is still only heartbeats away. The grave is still temporary housing. God is still faithful. He is not caught off guard. He uses everything for His glory and my ultimate good. He uses tragedy to accomplish His will, and His will is right, holy, and perfect. Sorrow may come with the night, but joy comes with the morning.’” In changing times, stand confidently on the unchanging character of God.

"For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins.
3But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year...

848098405684809840562018-09-24Well this is something we haven’t addressed on the page yet, physical training. Let’s talk about what you should/shouldn’t focus on when it comes to exercise and how faith still trumps it.
What you should focus on: You have been given one body by God. A body you should treat as a temple, feed the right foods and keep active. When you exercise regularly, you have a lot more energy, mental clarity and overall wellbeing. All this lifts your attitude, makes you feel happy, treat others better, connect with Christ easier and the list goes on. There is GREAT benefit in regular exercise.
What you shouldn’t focus on: It is quite clear that the bible is strongly against excessive pride or admiration of your own appearance e.g. 1 Samuel 16:7. Physical training should be done help improve your life and connection with Christ. Not to impress that guy/girl at school, attempt to fit in, or compare yourself to others.
As the verse says, godliness should be above all. Unlike materialistic possessions or physical health, your faith and the person you are is what remains with us in the present and the afterlife. So, use training to help better your general wellbeing, to then draw you closer to God. https://scontent-ams3-1.cdninstagram.com/vp/702ca7368a8ead3e4fc05466f806e63e/5C3076B5/t51.2885-15/e35/41314735_305083440302640_4018378799810915691_n.jpg2018-09-24
