Strength from within

Not many people understand the intricate details of the operation of the CORE musculature of their bodies. To a majority of the population, it is an unknown fact that the stability of the Spine and Pelvic Girdle in the Human Body is dependent on the strength of two internal muscle units working together to produce a complex system of actions. In other words, what seems a simple action such as standing up straight is an effort that can only be achieved by the cooperation of muscles no one has ever seen and when you alter this posture such as twisting at the waist, the unseen muscles operate as a symphony to produce a harmonic rythme which to the naked eye is a simple turn at the waist. Unfortuneately, it is because of the lack of knowledge the general population has concerning these muscles that is the root of almost all injuries. Failure to realize that one’s strength comes from within is what allows us to strain and sprain joints at unforseeen times.

“My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge.” (Hosea 4:6)

The prophet Hosea heard the the voice of the Lord clearly to say that the people have rejected the opportunity to gain strength within their land, in the hearts of each individual, and therefore they brought about their own demise. The knowledge they rejected would have given them the strength of knowing the fullness of God’s will, plan, and purpose for the earth and their role in seeing that purpose fulfilled.

The story of Rahab (Joshua chapters 2 & 6) is an excellent example of what can happen when a person heeds the voice of the Lord and those who have come to prepare the way. Rahab and her household were spared horrific destruction because Rahab welcomed the spies inside her walls and she drew her strength from their promise of rescue.

Rahab had spies, but we have the eternal, internal voice of the Holy Spirit speaking to our soul.   This is where our strength comes from.  The extent to which we allow our volitions (free will) to be affected by God’s Spirit is the measure by which we gain spiritual fitness and strengthen our inner man.

” I pray  that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.  And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge — that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” (Ephesians 3:16-19)

Our strength within is so much more than we can imagine. Don’t reject the knowledge that is available to strengthen you.  Rahab didn’t, and she, a former prostitute, became a woman whose womb eventually made place for the Christ child to come into the earth.
