Health and well-being is the number one blessing given us by God. Without health all other blessings are reduced to nothing. You can’t enjoy wealth, friendship, love, ministry or anything else if you are sick or dead. The health gate must be watched very closely throughout your lifetime. Think of your body as a beautiful machine that must be closely monitored and maintained in order to get optimum performance.
It all begins with taking good care of the body God has given you. Most sickness is a result of some kind of abuse at some point in your history. Knowing what to do and most importantly what not to do goes a long way in keeping you healthy. Think of your body as a garden and remember to tend it like Adam was commanded in Genesis. Sickness is a sign that you are not doing a good job as a gate keeper.
Eating right, exercising, avoiding the slow poisons we eat, getting proper rest, mental health, emotional health and taking care of yourself all ensure you are pain free. Obviously sickness will still try to attack but you stand a good chance to overcome because you are maning the gate. Nurture, tone and build your body into a glorious instrument that God can use to extend His kingdom on the earth.
SCRIPTURE READING: 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit [who is] in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Oh Lord, I know that my body is Your Temple and not my own. May I glorify You all the days of my life, amen.
