The Secret Of Power Living (Identify With Your True Self)

We always identify ourselves with our physical body. When our body is sick, we say we are sick. When our body is healthy and we are happy, we say we are happy and in the best of health. We function as though we only have body and soul in us. And as the soul takes the driver seat in our lives, we become emotionally high strung, victims of the prevailing moods of our emotions.

The Bible said, we were created in the image and likeness of God. And that image and likeness is the spirit and not the soul nor the body. The problem was, our spirit died when our first parents fell into sin. And the death of the spirit of man and the accompanying curses meted out to our first parents have been the bane of mankind ever since. We all have been born in the state of depravity.

But Jesus Christ redeemed us from these tragedies. Acceptance of Him as our Lord and savior enables the Holy Spirit to revive our long dead spirit. Now, the secret of power living is identifying with the spirit and not with the soul or body. Let the spirit take its reign over our lives and align our will with the will of the Father and we will see wonders unfold in our lives one after another.

First of all, we must concentrate on God's unwavering love for us. We claim the full benefits of Calvary. We must remember that we are co-heirs with Jesus Christ in the kingdom of heaven. The holiness and righteousness of Jesus Christ were imputed upon us when we were born again. And we are seated with Christ at the right hand of the Father. Whatever we ask in the name of Jesus, in agreement with the will of the Father, and through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, that we shall receive.

Nothing is impossible with God. So let us start to identify with our spirit and enjoy the benefits of power living. I am a living witness to this. I have been terribly sick for more than two decades now, and I always claim health instead of sickness. And I am well and able today, praise God. I have been retired from active work for so many years now, but God had supply all our needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. In all of these, all I can say is TO GOD BE THE GLORY now and forevermore.

Exercise Your Way To Health

The lifestyle of the now generation is fraught with so much danger and peril. The sedentary lifestyle of most people are such that there are no more room for balanced exercises. Thus, they eat a lot, sit and relax most of the time in front of the computer, TV, video game machine, DVD, or their ipod or MP4 players. Thus, they consume so much food but let them stay in their bodies and they become so lethargic and dull due to lack of exercise. And to compensate for their feeling of heaviness and lethargy, they drink a lot of energy drinks or even indulge in mind awakening drugs such as shabu, cocaine or marijuana.

Have we ever wondered why there are so many obese people especially in rich and developed nations? It is because they have so much of everything, and as everything in nature, excess of anything can kill. The remedy to this is the old fashioned style of exercising to relax our body and to replenish the stale air in our lungs. But most people are averse to exercising outdoors. They have their usual litanies of excuses.

If you cannot or do not want to go outside, then you can exercise inside. You can do stationary jogging for one hour. Or you can sweat it out in your own room by dancing your way to your favorite disco music. Be sure to close all the windows and shut off the air conditioner and voila, you have your own sauna room where you can exercise and sweat off your excess poundage. It is not only good for the heart and lungs but good for the bones too. Our bones absorb the calcium that we take in through exercise.

So you want a healthy body? Exercise your way to a better health and a younger, more self confident you.
