Keep going forward

The angels of God appeared to Jacob, to encourage him with the sense of Divine protection.
When God designs his people for great trials, he prepares them by great comforts.
While Jacob, to whom the promise belonged, had been in hard service, Esau was become a prince.
Jacob sent a message, showing that he did insist on his birth-right. Yielding pacifies great offenses, Ecclesiastes10:4. We must not refuse to speak respectfully, even to those unjustly angered with us. Jacob received an account of Esau's warlike preparation against him, and was greatly afraid.
A lively sense of fear arising from it, may be found united with humble confident in God's power and promise.

Genesis 32:1-8
Jacob also went on his way, and the angels of God met him. When Jacob saw them, he said, "This is the camp of God!" So he named that place Mahanaim. Jacob sent messengers ahead of him to his brother Esau in the land of Seir, the country of Edom. He instructed them: "This is what you are to say to my lord Esau: ‘Your servant Jacob says, I have been staying with Laban and have remained there till now. I have cattle and donkeys, sheep and goats, male and female servants. Now I am sending this message to my lord, that I may find favor in your eyes.’”
When the messengers returned to Jacob, they said, “We went to your brother Esau, and now he is coming to meet you, and four hundred men are with him.”
 In great fear and distress Jacob divided the people who were with him into two groups,and the flocks and herds and camels as well. He thought, “If Esau comes and attacks one group, the group that is left may escape.”

Why having good posture is important?

You know that poor posture effects your back in an negative way. I don't know if that you had an parent or friend that preaches at you. They preach at you when you have bad posture and most likely, you have ignored them. The next time that you hear this rebuke, you need to take an listen to their wisdom.

If a person is slumping while walking because the person is looking at their phone or tablet will most likely be mugged then someone that is attentive and standing up tall. So it will be wise for you not to slump over but to walk with an straight back.

I will explain more about having bad posture is bad for you. When a person has bad posture then it can cause harm on the human body. It can cause neck and back pain. It can cause muscle fatigue, breathing limitation, bad joints, digestive  problems and bad mood.

If a person have good posture then that can cause better confidence. There is something to be said of standing taller. Many people lie about their height because they want to be taller so if you stand up taller then you add inch to your height.

I am guilty of looking down on my phone with hump back and most people have the same issues.
I have been working on not do this anymore. I don't want to have the iPosture and many people have bad posture and that includes teenagers now- a -days.
The more your head to not aligned to your spine, the more weight that you put on your spine.

I will give you an helpful advice for good posture. Practice an shoulder roll when you sit.

  • While sitting in your chair, lift your shoulder and roll it back as far it is comfortable can without moving your body around.
  • Then, let your shoulder blade slide down along your spine.

We live in an age that information is on our phone and tablets so look up exercises to increase your posture and back muscles. We can be more self-aware of the issue of bad posture and if you notice that you have the iPosture then correct the position of your back. Your back will thank you.

I will give an personal reason why I think this topic is important to me. I want to give the best body to my Lord Jesus. So I want to have a good, straight back so I will have better health so I am doing the yoga without the eastern thought. The exercises has helped to be know what a good, straight back is.

I know that the Lord want me to take care of myself so I do my best. If my health is not good because I have a bad back because of my posture then I am limiting myself for the Lord. I love this Bible verse. Romans 12:1 talks about giving your body to the Lord. So I believe that believers needs to take care of their selves the best they can.
