7 Christian Fitness Affirmations

My friend, allow me to encourage you today.

Whether you are in great physical shape or walking down your driveway is difficult for you, God cares about your physical activity and daily movement.

No matter where your fitness level, all of us struggle to balance finding peace and contentment vs. wishing we were more improved.

Because of my 100 pound weight loss 10 years ago, I have experienced a wide range of physical fitness levels during my life. I’ve been in amazing shape (able to compete in a Half Ironman), and I’ve been unable to walk up a flight of stairs without assistance.

God loves you right where you are.

Your fitness activities will be acts of worship when you give them to Him.

I set aside worry about performance.

And he said to his disciples, “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat, nor about your body, what you will put on. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing.

Luke 12:22-23


God gives me strength for physical activity.

He gives power to the faint,
    and to him who has no might he increases strength.
Even youths shall faint and be weary,
    and young men shall fall exhausted;

 but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
    they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
    they shall walk and not faint.

Isaiah 40:29-31


I dedicate my exercise endeavors to God.

I can do all things through him who gives me strength.

Philippians 4:13


Fitness is an act of worship.

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

I put forth my best effort.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

2 Timothy 4:7


I persevere.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith.

Hebrews 12:1-2a


I am a worthy child of God.

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.
