Have you noticed that when you walk up an incline it takes much more effort than walking on a flat surface? Your brain signals the cardiovascular system to supply the respiratory and musculoskeletal systems with additional blood enriched with molecules of oxygen.
The same concept applies to our spiritual life. We are on a upward journey in preparation for eternal life. The oxygen enriched blood is the Word of God. Prayer connects us to our spiritual commander/leader-Jesus Christ.
The body pumps the correct amount of blood to sustain life for that given day. Daily prayer and study of God’s Word is the required sustenance to strengthen us to achieve our upward climb.
Dear God, please give me the desire to sustain my spiritual climb through diligent prayer and study of you Word. Amen
