Good Health. God wants us to be healthy. He’s not just waiting for us to be sick for Him to heal us, No!
His power to heal can also keep us healthy at all times. The power that can restore health can also maintain health.
He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed.
~ 1 Peter 2:24 (NLT)
In God’s ecosystem, there is no provision for sicknesses and diseases. He wants us to be healthy. Exodus 15:25-26 (NLT)
Feed on Revelation:
To live a healthy life, feed your spirit on revelation, and build your life on that revelation. There is power in the word of God.
There is power in words, and information, but at the highest realm of information is revelation, which is the word of God. Proverbs 4:20-22 (NLT)
The word of God brings healing to our body. What are you feeding your body with?
The bread will feed your body, but the word that proceeds from the mouth of God will feed your spirit.
And your spirit is more important than your physical body. Your spirit need to be strong to maintain the healthiness of your body.
Everything you hear and see does not leave you the same. They either make strong or weak spiritually.
Eat healthy Food:
Culture shows up in our diet. Culture always influences diet
As citizens of the kingdom of God, we should be careful of what and how we eat.
Make food your medicine, and medicine would not have to be your food.
The most important intake for your body is water. 65-67% of the body is made up of water.
You must pay attention to the quality of the water you take. Listen to your body and take in on the things that are useful to your health.
Walk in love:
When it comes to the lifestyle of God’s kingdom, love is the most important commandment.
Obeying with the commandments of the kingdom makes God our personal physician and healer. Exodus 15:26 (NLT)
Walking in love would enable us to satisfy all the commandments of the Kingdom.
Feed your spirit, make sure your body is in top shape, and walking in love makes all that possible.
The quality of our love walk would determine the quality of our health.
When we walk in obedience to God, the elements of this earth will obey us.
God is more interested in us walking in love. That is the foundational principle that governs God’s system. Galatians 5:6 (NLT)
Holding malice, grudges, negative thoughts, emotions, and action can create spiritual distortions that affect our health.
The quality of your relationships affects the quality of your health, and it affects the flow of eternal life.
Poor quality relationships affect the quality of your health. 1 Peter 3:7 (NLT)
Love accepts the person the way they are. Prayers can be hindered because of the quality of our relationships
We receive grace for forgiveness, grace to be healed, grace to feed our spirit with the word of God, in the name of Jesus Christ.
