Walking is an excellent exercise for fat burning. While any exercise can burn calories, brisk walking for 45 minutes mobilizes the body to dip into fat reserves and burn stored fat. Another benefit to walking is that it requires very little for the mind. So while you’re walking your mind is free to concentrate on other things. So why not use the time while you’re getting physically fit to get spiritually fit. Why not use the time to mediate on the word of God. Memorization and meditation brings revelation.
The enemy is always on his job of trying to fill our minds with negative thoughts. We therefore, must always be on our jobs of filling our minds with the word of God. Positive thinking doesn’t come automatically after we’re saved. No, we must work to have our minds renewed by mediating on the word of God. Romans 12:2 says, “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 God.”
When you change the way you think you change the way you live. So it’s time to start living the good life by renewing your mind. It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner, in the middle or advanced. When you add the word to your walking routine it becomes a Power Walk. Here is a quick and easy way to turn your normal walk into a power walk.
Take a verse of scripture and speak it out as it is written. Now stop and mediate on the words of the scripture you just spoke, going over each word in your mind. Then return to speaking the scripture out but this time make the verse personal to you. For example, if you’re using John 3:16 you want to say that, God so loved me that He gave me His only begotten Son that as I believe on Him I shall not perish but I shall have everlasting life. Lastly, stop and listen for the revelation that the Holy Spirit will give you concerning that scripture.
Well, there you have it! While you building you’re physical body you’re building yourself up spiritually by renewing your mind in the word.
