Health — Day 15

Believe It

Psalm 73:4: “They have no struggles; their bodies are healthy and strong.”

Jeremiah 33:6: “Nevertheless, I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security.”

Live It

We can learn three lessons from today’s text.

  1. God is interested in my health. The two Bible texts for today are two examples among many that express God’s intense desire for His people to be healthy. One of the most terrible consequences of sin is sickness, and this is why Jesus came to earth to redeem us. Not only does He care about our spiritual wellbeing, He wants us to be healthy in every area of life.
  2. Claim Bible promises, while receiving medical care. In a study of heart-attack patients, it was shown that those for whom prayer was said experienced fewer complications, died less frequently, and recovered more quickly. Are you sick? Claim as yours God’s promises regarding health. There are two extremes to avoid. Some discount medical care and thumb their noses at anything that has to do with dependence on medicine, pills, hospital care. Others depend so much on medicine that they forget God’s promises concerning physical healing. The best option is to do both.
  3. There is a connection between physical and emotional health. The connection between body/mind/spirit is real. One affects or benefits the other. Jesus wants you to be healthy in all areas of your life. Wouldn’t you like to invite Jesus right now to touch your body, your mind, and your emotions with His health?

Share It

To promote emotional well-being, psychologists recommend doing something good for another person. What can you do today for another person?
