00038 - Precept upon precept, line upon line.

Updated: Mar 10, 2023

The British cyclist team had ever won the Tour de France. The new coach David Brailsford came with a very different approach to the training. The new training method was simple, to make loads of small changes rather than few big ones. Different massage gel, better pillows, better nutrition, changing meal times, the angle of the bike’s seat, slimmer wheel tyres, insisting every rider washed their hands after going to the toilet to reduce infection.

The Sky team won in 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017, only missing 2014 because Chris Froome crashed during the race. Brailsford called the technique the aggregation of marginal gains.

Our faith is like this, in fact, Isaiah 28:10 recommends ‘precept upon precept, Line upon line’. Imagine if we made a few small changes to how we pray, believe in faith, study the bible, our walk with God might change beyond belief. Give it a try today!

Quote Our Walk with God is made up of lots of small steps.

Prayer Heavenly Father, help me know my walk with you is not defined by big steps, but lots of little ones.

Action Point Have a think about the little things you could do to improve your prayer life and bible study.
