In order to be healthy we need to take care of ourselves

lm 107:20 (AMPC) 20 He sends forth His word and heals them and rescues them from the pit and destruction.

A lot of times we are not taught that healing of all kinds is part of what Christ died for us to have. Why would Jesus die for us to be saved and want us to feel bad all of the time? I often forget that God can heal us everywhere we hurt whether it is big or little. Doctors are great, but never leave God out of the loop when it comes to your healing.

In order to be healthy we need to take care of ourselves. That also includes what we eat, drink, how we exercise, and how we manage stress. We are going to be with our body for a long time. When it comes to healing, we seem to want a miracle. But when we get the miracle we don’t necessarily change the bad habits that got us into bad health.

We may think we do not have time to exercise, afford to eat well, or do things we need to do to manage stress. What are we so busy doing that we do not take care of ourselves. If we do not take care of us, who will? It is up to us to take care of ourselves.

Jeremiah 30:17 (AMPC) 17 For I will restore health to you, and I will heal your wounds, says the Lord, because they have called you an outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no one seeks after and for whom no one cares!

God will work with us in healing our body. We can pray that God will help us to make right choices for our health, that we will be sent to the right doctors to help us in our time in need, and we will experience the healing power of God in our lives. Our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. God lives in us so He can work through us. We have God’s anointing in us and we can pray for people and see the sick get well. 

Acts 3:4-6 (AMPC) And Peter directed his gaze intently at him, and so did John, and said, Look at us! And [the man] paid attention to them, expecting that he was going to get something from them. But Peter said, Silver and gold (money) I do not have; but what I do have, that I give to you: in [the [a]use of] the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk!

If you would like to accept Jesus as your savior, and you are not quite sure how, it is as simple as saying a prayer to God letting Him know you are ready to accept Him into your life. Say this prayer if you would like to invite Jesus to live in your heart:

Father God, I love you and believe in you. I need you Lord and I am sorry for my sins and the way that I live. Lord, I want you in my life. I receive Jesus as my savior and Lord. I believe that Jesus died for me and rose from the dead. Lord take me as I am and make me the way you want me to be. God, thank you for saving me and being with me on my journey. I am looking forward to my journey with you Lord. I know you will equip me for my journey and I am glad I have you by my side as I walk this walk of Life. Thank you Lord, I love you. Amen

My true belief is that the best way to preach is by our actions and not our words. However, we need some daily inspiration to keep us on our path. We as Christians have a responsibility not to judge others by our words but to show the love of Christ by loving them where they are at on their personal journey in life...and if they never turn their life over to Christ, continue to love them for who they are - after all God does.
