Whether your life is going well or not, you need to strengthen your core physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. It’s the only way you can live the life God created you to live. So what does strengthening your core look like from where you are today? Your mind cannot be your core because it’s in need of constant renewal, but it does make your choices. Your emotions cannot be your core because they come and go like ocean waves, but they do provide valuable information. Here are a few thoughts about what your core really is. Let me know what you think.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. ROMANS 12:2
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
So above all, guard the affections of your heart,
for they affect all that you are.
Pay attention to the welfare of your innermost being,
for from there flows the wellspring of life. PROVERBS 4:23
He will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you.
“I’ll pour pure water over you and scrub you clean. I’ll give you a new heart, put a new spirit in you. I’ll remove the stone heart from your body and replace it with the heart I have for you. I’ll put my Spirit in you and make it possible for you to do what is right and good.” EZEKIEL 36:26
Strengthen your core and see amazing results.
God can do anything, you know — far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing you around, but by working within you, His Spirit deeply and gently within you. EPHESIANS 3:20
