God literally woke Samuel up in the middle of the night by speaking to him. God’s voice comes to us while we’re sleeping in darkness. Most of us spend a good portion of our lives asleep in God’s presence. The encounter will come, and it will startle us from our spiritual and physical lethargy. Hearing His voice calls us out of our current posture. His voice makes us come alive.
God’s voice awakened me. Just as Jesus raised the dead with the sound of His voice, God lifted me out of the darkness of unhealthy eating and inactivity. I responded as Samuel did. “Speak Lord, for your Servant is listening.”
His words began to flow. My heart and body came alive more than ever to the sound of His voice. God’s voice awakened me by telling me my body was in awful shape. He spoke to me about the junk I was eating and living as a couch potato.
Joyce and I started eating healthy small food portions. No more Diet Cokes. Just water and lots of it. No more snacking on Little Debbie Swiss Cake Roll – my weakness. Just bananas strawberries for snacks now!
The voice of God literally changed my unhealthy diet and eating habits!
I also heard The Lord say, “Get active!
I couldn’t even walk a mile without stopping. My calf muscles ached.
I bought a Fitbit and set as my goal 6000 steps each day. The Fitbit is a great tool. It reminds me every hour to get moving and gives trophies for reaching my goals which is highly motivating for me!
God spoke to me and my wife about diet and exercise. We listened, and the results are phenomenal!
Here is last week’s Fitbit summary.
