Working Out

Our feelings may not always agree with the facts of the Word of God. But as we exercise our faith and our understanding we will change.
"Let it burn, let it shake, let it change" is the tag my favorite fitness instructor Suzanne Bowen uses as I exercise.
This analogy "Burn, shake, change" tag can also be applied as an exercise for our thought processes concerning our understanding of God's word.
We do not yet know as we ought. We are daily being conformed to His image.
We have been given the mind of Christ, yet at times refuse to walk it out in our everyday life and challenges. Let every man be a liar, yet God be true.

May our faith be solid and unmovable in the truth that the Holy Spirit has revealed in our hearts, minds, and lives, lived unto God.
May that which is unholy, in error, or disobedient within us burn up in the Presence of His Truth.
When our mind, body, spirit and soul are exercised in the Word of God..internal and external shaking will then reveal the solid rock of Jesus Christ upon which we stand.
We are changed as old things pass away and behold all things are new.

Working out my own salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians 2:12)

Luke 24:32  And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?

2 Corinthians 5:17  Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

1 Corinthians 2:12-16 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

2 Corinthians 3:17-18 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

Romans 3

Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of will of God.

Matthew 7:24-27
Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock
And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

1 Timothy 4:16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear.
