This year, God wants YOU to thrive in every area of your life! Every year at Transformation Christian Fellowship, we refer to January as "Vision Month". This is a time where we come together as a local body to seek the Lord for direction concerning the new year that we have entered in through prayer, fasting, and planning Kingdom moves! Pastor Brandon laid out four specific areas that he believes God would have us to thrive in this year:
2. Spiritually 3. Financially 4. Physically
Pastor Brandon challenged us with a question that he was challenged with in his personal prayer time: "Can God use you to your fullest capacity in the physical and mental shape that you are currently in?" It is imperative that we take care of ourselves both mentally and physically so that we can thrive to our fullest capacity!
There are two principles to understand why we need to "Get Fit":
1. We are the property of God!
I Corinthians 6:19 says, "Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?". Simply put, our bodies belong to the Lord; they are the temples of the Holy Spirit! Therefore, it is our duty to keep them in good, healthy condition!
2. Our bodies are used to achieve God's purposes!
I Timothy 4:8 says, "For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come." More than physical discipline, our bodies were made to demonstrate and live out godliness in every aspect of our lives! Godliness achieves God's purposes!
