When you properly exercise your muscles, initially you will feel pressure and pain. If you stop because of what you feel, then pressure and pain is all that you will experience. However if you continue to push, press, and persevere, your muscles will become tight and tone and your body will be wonderfully transformed.
The same applies to your spiritual man when you exercise faith and trust in God. Initially you may feel foolish, you may feel frustration and you may even feel failure. But the Bible tells us if you continue to fix your mind on the Father, continue to focus on the future, forget about the past failures, you will have a spiritual transformation and you will finish first. PUMP UP YOUR FAITH!!!
Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the Lord,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.
He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
And the young men shall utterly fall,
But those who wait (have faith and trust) on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint (finish first).
