Like a handphone that needs to be recharged regularly, we need to rest periodically to rejuvenate the spirit, soul and body.

By doing a series of neck exercises, one can refresh one’s spirit. This “stress buster” goes by the name POSTURE:

Sit upright on a chair. Look upwards and meditate on Psalm 121:1-2: “I lift up my eyes to the hills — where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.”

Next, tilt your head and attempt to touch your shoulder with your ear. As you do this, say this: “I cast all my anxiety on Him because He cares for me”(1 Peter 5:7). Next, tilt your head the other side and declare similarly.

Then, droop your head forwards and remind yourself: “Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time” (1 Peter 5:6). Pride is a pitfall that leaders constantly need to be on guard against.

Finally, position your head upright and look straight ahead. Next, turn your head from side to side, as if it were like a swivel chair. Remind yourself to be vigilant: “Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8). For, when God’s work advances, there will be detractors and enemies, which the devil can use against us.

Remind yourself that spiritual warfare is inherent in any godly enterprise, but we are seated with Christ in the heavenly realms (Ephesians 2:6). Pray, confess the positive, speak His Word with spiritual authority and “possess the land”.
