Luke 1:37  ESV  –  For nothing will be impossible with God

     It is a good thing to exercise your body.  Exercise strengthens your heart and improves your circulation.  Oxygen levels in the blood rise along with the increased blood flow.  The combination of these elements lowers the risk of heart diseases such as high cholesterol, coronary artery disease and heart attack.  Regular exercise can also lower your blood pressure.  The failure to exercise usually leads to atrophy of muscles.

     Like muscles, failure to exercise your faith can lead to spiritual atrophy.  The longer you go without exercising your faith, the greater the danger that you will forget how to use your faith.

     Faith is a gift of God and it is his wish that we use it.  But more than that, faith leans heavily on acknowledging that He is mightier than we are ourselves.  As humans, we can choose to rely upon ourselves to accomplish something or we can choose to rely upon He who is capable of far greater things than we are ourselves.  Once we commit ourselves to rely upon Him, through faith, all things become possible.  Even those things that are seemingly impossible.
