February 1, 2011Read: Exodus 4
"The Lord said, 'Throw it on the ground.' Moses threw it on the ground and it became a snake, and he ran from it." -- Exodus 4:3
Yesterday's quote of the week ended with a question: What will good health cost you? In fact, we believe that it's only when we see our health as an offering does that question make sense.
You know, Moses was reluctant to part with his staff, but when he finally laid it down in obedience, it became the rod of God. It wouldn't be long before Moses used it to part the Red Sea. Abraham was asked to lay down his own son upon the alter, and Peter was asked to lay down his nets after catching nothing all night.
Put simply, God is honored by what we're willing to lay down. What are you holding that's keeping you from living a healthier, more abundant life? Whatever it might be, just know that Moses, Abraham and Peter know first hand that it's alright to let go.

If what you're holding is or isn't on this list, ask God to help you prioritize your life so that your health is in line with what He intended for you. Then, begin making practical, daily steps to let go of those habits that keep you sedentary or occupied when you could be more active and healthy. If you need prayer in this area, let us know and we'd love to pray for you. Please go to our prayer request forum here on our website.
