Ephesians 6:18; Psalm 5:3
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
What is believers' spiritual fitness routine? It is believers' daily routine of communing with God, which is spending some quite time with the Lord. This is believers' beginning and ending his or her day in prayer. The Lord God loves hearing and communing with His people. There is nothing like a daily morning prayer with the Lord (Psalm 5:3). Communing with the Lord sets the tone for the believer's day because Satan is waiting trying to disrupt the good each day brings.
Daily Bible reading and meditating on God's Word is another part of believers' fitness program. Daily Bible reading reaffirms the truth of God's Word in our hearts and minds giving all believers the power to remain steadfast in the truth of His word and withstand Satan's attacks.
Believers, we are in a spiritual battle and without being spiritually fit to win this war we may become a fallen soldier. God dressed us in His body amour (Ephesians 6:11-18), because He knew the many battles we would encounter, but take heart His Spirit lives inside and with God's Word firmly planted in our hearts victory is our. Christ assured this victory on Calvary's cross. We still have to be physically and mentally prepared. Physically readiness is taking care of our earthly house/bodies through proper nourishment and rest. This is because our bodies are the temple of God and our inner man connects with God's Spirit-the Holy Spirit. Being mentally prepared is as stated earlier daily prayers, Bible reading and meditations, and then yielding control to the residing Holy Spirit. He will shepherd us through the day.
Being spiritually fit is being Christ-centered and focused. In doing so, the world cannot harm us; it will try, but we are more than conquerors through Christ.
