Pastor Ronnie Floyd, author of "Living Fit," shares five gauges in a person's life that are indicators he or she is living to their fullest. The first gauge is foundational to a person's spiritual life. Floyd shares that when a person stops spending time with God and dreaming about what He might want them to do, that means the caution light on their spiritual dashboard is flashing. Floyd recommends praying boldly like Jabez, who called out to the God of Israel, asking Him to extend his border, to bless him, and to keep him from harm.
