Scriptures on “training”

This weekly sub-series can assist your physical and relational exercise of 24 dynamics of spiritual fitness in Scripture that parallel physical and relational fitness:  balance, flexibility, initiative, partners, weight, etc.  You can print some or all of the Scriptures and read them to each other as you walk, tape them to a wall to guide discussion and prayer as you lift weights, etc.  Each of the dynamics has corresponding devotional articles, music videos, suggested applications, and more.  Use whatever is most helpful to strengthen your love for God and your neighbors through Christ.  If you’re interested in learning more about this holistic approach to fitness, you can read my free book W.A.I.T. Training.

2 Chronicles 2:12-14, “And Hiram added: “Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, who made heaven and earth!  He has given King David a wise son, endowed with intelligence and discernment, who will build a temple for the Lord and a palace for himself. “I am sending you Huram-Abi, a man of great skill, whose mother was from Dan and whose father was from Tyre. He is trained to work in gold and silver, bronze and iron, stone and wood, and with purple and blue and crimson yarn and fine linen. He is experienced in all kinds of engraving and can execute any design given to him. He will work with your skilled workers and with those of my lord, David your father.”

Psalm 144:1-2, “Praise be to the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.  He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me.”
