God's Prescription for Good Health


If I had a pill that could promise to add years to your life, you'd probably pay a lot of money for it. But what if I told you, as a Christian, you already have the key to a long life and it's free? God has given all of the principles for health management in his Word, the Bible. The Bible is the owner's manual for your body. As David says, "You made my body, Lord; now give me sense to heed your laws." (Psalm 119:73 LB) And in Deuteronomy, it says, "These instructions are not mere words - they are your life! By obeying them you will enjoy a long life in the land ." (Deuteronomy 32:47 NLT) God says, "If you do what I tell you to do with your health, you will enjoy a long life." What are the commands we should keep in our hearts? "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing ." (Proverbs 3:5-10 NIV) These verses highlight some factors that you probably don't think about, but they will keep you healthy: tranquility, trust in God, integrity, humility, and generosity. These things will cause your health to be better because your physical health is influenced by your spiritual health.
