  1. JT This is the PowerBreak Podcast, I’m JT along with Bob Brubaker and this is the  –– time for some questions and answers. Feel free to submit your questions by EMAIL TO JT@bobbrubaker.com and we’ll get to the answer on an upcoming PowerBreak. Podcast…

 

  1. JTQuestion ONE - FROM THE SPIRITUAL SIDE OF LIFE….

 

What is the best way to discern an open door of opportunity to know whether it’s from God or not?

 

  1. Bob & JT discuss

 

James 1:5–8 (ESV) — 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

Proverbs 3:5–8 (ESV) — 5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. 7 Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. 8 It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.

Romans 12:1–2 (ESV) — 1 I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. 2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

James 3:17 (ESV) — 17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.

  1. JT – Question Two… “FROM THE MENTAL ASPECT”

 

How can we mentally prepare for God closing doors and opening other doors for us?

 

  1. Bob & JT discuss

 

Revelation 3:7 (ESV) — 7 “And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: ‘The words of the holy one, the true one, who has the key of David, who opens and no one will shut, who shuts and no one opens.

Colossians 4:3 (ESV) — 3 At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison—

1 Corinthians 16:9 (ESV) — 9 for a wide door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.

  1. (JT) Third Question …. From the physical side of life…

Let’s talk about the best workouts for weight loss…. What say you Bob?

  1. Bob and JT discuss…

 

At least 150 minutes per week – cardio

  • Climbing stairs – treadmill on an incline, stairmaster, Elliptical etc.
  • Bottom line: Whatever you do that will not hurt you and you’ll do regularly.
    • What say you JT

 

Bob’s final comment – It takes discipline ….

 

Point: DISCIPLINE MAKES THE DIFFERENCE --- in all aspects of life
