Start this adventure from the beginning:
Glad to have you back, you Truth seeker, you!
What do you think of exercise? Do you suppose that king Lemuel's
mother was pertaining to exercise as a means of obtaining bodily
1 Timothy 4:8
For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable
unto all things.
It's interesting to look at the verse that Paul wrote to Timothy just
before this one:
1 Timothy 4:7
But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather
Christian Exercise in the Bible Warning ... First notice that Paul is
warning not to believe in old wives' tales. It's apparent that back
then, people believed in superstitious nonsense too. Maybe back then,
it wasn't that body sculpting was "in" but some other temporal thing.
In this scripture, one might surmise that Paul isn't talking about
physical exercise per se, but anything you spend your time on.
"Exercise thyself rather unto godliness." Spend your time on
achieving godliness. Perhaps when Paul said that bodily exercise
profiteth little, he may have meant that anything you spend your
energy on that isn't godly is unprofitable.
Many women absolutely love the thought of being strong and having
power, but let's search for the spiritual message here. Here comes
another one of those wounds of Truth again, but a flatterer, I am not.
He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favour than he that
flattereth with the tongue.
Exercise Bible Verses Concern
Christian Exercise in the Bible Warning
Is the power you desire the power of the Holy
Spirit, or is it the kind of power that the world says is
desirable? Is the power you seek, power to resist evil, or is it the
power to assist evil?
Let's look at this Christian Exercise Bible Scripture in a different
light. Let's talk about nuclear energy for example. When atoms are
split, a lot of energy is released. If that power is contained in a
bomb, when it is detonated, what happens? Destruction. But if that
power was used differently, maybe it could heat homes, fuel cars, or
provide electricity of amazing proportions.
You wouldn't pour gasoline into your television set, or throw a
couple dozen 9 volt batteries into the gas tank of your car because
it's the wrong kind of energy source, and they just wouldn't work.
Now, think about how you, as a woman, were created. You are
the weaker vessel. But that doesn't mean that you have no effect on
1 Peter 3:7
Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving
honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs
together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
As you can see, being the weaker vessel isn't less honorable. But it
does mean that your power or strength is used for different purposes.
Not only physically, but spiritually, how much strength do you
suppose it takes to bear a child? How about raising a child? How
about the woman's role as a homemaker? In many facets of life, a
woman must be tireless.
The world has spent more energy convincing women that their power
lies in politics, fame, a job or career, dominating men, money,
muscular development, and so many other ridiculous things, that it
makes uranium look silly. You're heading for destruction if you're
trying to gain the wrong kind of power. The Christian Exercise Bible
verses reveal this without a doubt.
A respected friend of mine explained to me the natural weakness of a
woman. Picture this: You're sitting on the sofa watching a movie with
your mate, when suddenly you hear a window break. What do you do ...
Naturally? Do you immediately jump up motioning for your mate not to
move and say, "Don't worry honey, I'll take care of this," or do you
naturally expect him to take care of it?
Instead of using your energy ... Your strength ... To try and gain
power that God never meant you to have, why not spend the same amount
of energy resisting the world's deception. You'll find that the Holy
Spirit will redirect your energy into womanly strength, if you just
ask. Go ahead ... Ask!
You do need strength, and an abundance of it to resist the devil.
You're a prime target because of your natural weakness and he (the
enemy) knows it. Why do you think he approached Eve in the Garden of
Eden instead of Adam? Because he knew she was weaker and his chances
of con-vincing her were better. But what if Eve had relied on
the power of the Holy Spirit instead of desire to have her own power,
would she then have sensed the danger that threatened all of mankind
after her? That might've been nice, eh? That is what she was
desirous of, wasn't it ... Power ... To be as a god?

Christian Exercise in the Bible Fear
1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the
field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea,
hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the
fruit of the trees of the garden:
3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of
the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye
touch it, lest ye die.
4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely
5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then
your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and
6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food,
and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to
make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave
also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
Christian Exercise Bible Verses Reminder ... That kind of evil that
Eve experienced in the Garden of Eden, still lurks around the world
today. You encounter it every day of your life, but if you focus on
gaining the strength of the Spirit of God to fulfill His will for you
instead of your own will for worldly strength, you'll gain inner
strength from HIM that will bring you the contentment in your life
that you're looking for, and isn't contentment and the power of the
Holy Spirit really the only power a person needs?
With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall
Just imagine, any gym that you pass, at any given moment, if all
those women devoted an hour to the Lord instead of their flesh,
however many times per week they go, how much more strength they
would really have.
Spend your energy to edify, magnify, praise and honor your Father.
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all
thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is
the first commandment.
Don't be overwhelmed by the responsibilities of being virtuous. The
strength of the Lord and the power of the Holy Spirit will sustain

Christian Exercise in the Bible Rules
What does the Lord consider strength?
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I
am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song
will I praise Him.
The way of the Lord is strength to the upright.
In the fear of the Lord is strong confidence: and His children shall
have a place of refuge.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into
it, and is safe.
The joy of the Lord is your strength.
My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart,
and my portion for ever.
The question again: What does the Lord consider strength? The answer:
The Lord is a virtuous woman's strength.
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon
you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all
Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the Earth.
The power of the
Spirit is the only power you need.
Independent ... Yet Insecure?
Speaking of strength ... I knew a person, a woman, who thought she
was tough as nails on the outside. She could talk a big story, and
make (some) people believe that she was a real "tough broad." But
when it came down to brass tacks, so to speak, being tough as nails
didn't ward off the enemy. She was constantly being attacked (tried
and tempted) despite her Goliath-like armor. On the inside, she was
always nervous, doubtful, scared and insecure.
Christian Exercise Bible Verses Point of Interest ...You can
mistakenly believe that talking big talk, or appearing physically
strong, or projecting that you are worldly independent is enough to
sustain your inner strength in this life and bear you through to
Salvation, but your conscience (the source of righteousness and the
strength to resist wrong in you) knows that the Spirit of God is the
only strength that can carry you through the trials and tribulations
that this world will unquestionably present in your life. Lean on
Him. Depend on Him. He is your shield.
For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give Grace and
glory: no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.
Depend on the Lord
Christian Exercise Bible Tidbit of Truth ... That's the only security
you have. That's the only strength that you can truly count on, day
in, and day out. It doesn't matter what the world perceives you as.
David knew this when he accepted Goliath's challenge to fight, that
you can be a giant, but if you don't depend on the Lord for your
strength ... You're as weak as a feather.
Spiritual Exercise Bible Verses
Christian Exercise in the Bible for God
Do you remember, I mentioned a woman named Deborah who was once the
judge of Israel? During that time the king of Canaan had a massive
army, and was well equipped with 900 iron chariots. The people of
Israel in all practicality didn't stand a chance against them, having
no comparison for artillery. But guess what happened. God sent a
torrent, and it turned the battleground into a quagmire, so the
chariots were useless and Israel won the battle. The hand of God is
the only strength that you can truly count on.
Security is dependence on God ... Period.
Physical strength is temporal. It is fleshly. You are reborn in the
Spirit when you are a Christian. Anything fleshly ... Or
derived of your own strength or ability ... Is deceiving. It will
Christian Exercise in the Bible Reminder ... We talked in an earlier
step about regaining femininity. In your quest for virtue, if you
aren't seeking for gentleness, meekness, submissiveness, love, and
anything else that Jesus represented of God when He was on Earth,
then you're seeking for the wrong things. He calmed the storm with
the power of the Holy Spirit, not with physical strength. He walked
on water. He did miraculous things that the strongest man on Earth
could not do. And He waits for you to depend on Him ... To ask for
His power to work through you to accomplish His will in your life. No
weight lifting necessary.
Undoubtedly, the world will disagree ... And that's their job, as
advocates of the enemy of your soul, but your soul, your conscience,
the essence of your womanhood knows better and the Christian Exercise
Bible Verses prove this.
The Lord is Your Rock!
Undoubtedly there are thoughts popping up about these scriptures:
1 Corinthians 3:16-17
16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the
Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God
destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
1 Corinthians 6:19
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost
which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
Christian Exercise Bible Verses Summary
Everyone knows that exercise is good for your body and nobody is
saying don't take care of yourself. Taking care of yourself shows
respect of the health and body (temple of the Holy Ghost) which God
gave you. Just beware of your purpose of exercising. Exercise
moderation. Exercise Godliness and you get eternal profit.
Christian Exercise in the Bible Tip ... How do you exercise
godliness? Lean on God. Pray to God. Rely on God. Trust in God.
And as always, reflect on God's Grace
... It is so strengthening!
