Monday, January 13 WISDOM FOR GOOD HEALTH (1)
“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” 3 John 1:2
God cares about us, Spirit, soul and body! He cares deeply for the physical bodies that He has given His children. Let’s review some simple ways to look after yourself physically.
First, pay close attention to what you eat. Your body will use whatever food you give itwhether good or badas fuel. When you fill your body with the wrong things, you are limiting its efficiency, energy, and overall potential. Perhaps, one of the reasons why Isaac’s eyes failed him at his old age was because he ate too much savoury meat while growing up (Genesis 27:1,4).
On the contrary, Solomon advised his son to eat honey! (Proverbs 24:13). What you eat is very important. Second, exercise is vital to a healthy body. Maybe you have tried doing that for a while and have failed, then try again! It is a matter of discipline. You may not enjoy exercise, but your body needs it. The Bible says “Exercise is good for your body” (1 Timothy 4:8a CEV).
If all you can do is take a walk for some few kilometers each day, then do it! You are responsible for how you take care of your body which is the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19).
Eat well and observe regular exercise. Your body needs it and the Bible confirms
James 1:23; Colossians 1:27; Zechariah 4:6.
Father, as Christ in me is successful, I decree success into my life in the name of Jesus;
O Lord, as Christ in me is healthy, I decree health into my body in the name of Jesus.
