However, the revelations that we need to advance us from the same old, same old will initially require a greater hunger for the word of God. It is impossible to advance in the things of God physically if you're malnourished spiritually.
The scripture advises us that if we faint in the day of adversity our (spiritual) strength is small, Proverbs 24:10. Amazingly, in an earlier verse of this same chapter, Proverbs 24:5 to be exact, we are instructed how to increase our spiritual strength to avoid defeat in the day of adversity obviously. Proverbs 24:5 reads, "A wise man is strong, but a man of "KNOWLEDGE" increases his strength."
The understanding here is, while physical resistance such as weight lifting builds the physical strength of a person the equivalent of building spiritual strength would be by increasing the "KNOWLEDGE" of God to your human spirit on a consistent basis. In so doing it is impossible to fail in the day of adversity!
