Revealed Hidden Secrets to Lasting Health
It seems rather odd that an obedient lifestyle could bring freedom to our health! The worlds definition of obedience can mean that we are under a yolk of bondage or slavery. When it comes to our health it is precisely the opposite obedience to godly lifestyle principles will bring renewed health freedom. The freedom that I have in my healthy body today comes only from obeying the many lifestyle principles of health that God has outlined in his Word. Obviously God is not responsible for our actions how we act but we often put the blame on him when we say things such as:
If I only were born to health minded parents I wouldn’t be so sick today.
If my genetics were better I wouldn’t have been stricken with this disease.
If there wasn’t so much junk food temptation everywhere I go I wouldn’t be so overweight and unhealthy.
Who are you Blaming?
When we say these things we blame God and play the role of a victim instead of having the attitude and place of victory that Christ is with us. “For I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength” Philippians 4:13 (NLT). So lets stop playing the blame game and start acting like we are victors in Him to overcome the circumstances in which we are all in, which is sin and the fall of man. Sin is nothing more than “missing the mark”. You see God has a perfect plan for you and your health today, a bullseye mark that you can hit everyday if you will draw from His Word and His Spirit of Truth. “For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, plans to prosper and not to harm you for hope and a future” Jeremiah 29:11 (ESV).
How to Build Spirit and Body!
God’s word tells us; “I hope all is well with you and that you are as healthy in body as you are strong in spirit.” 3 John 2 (NLT) If we did a little deeper we find that a healthy body and strong spirit are the creators plan for us. There are certain people I am hanging out with really make my spirit soar. These people are the ones I will spend my personal and private time with because I need to stay strong in spirit. These people are my inner group like the closest ones that Jesus hung out with, they are positive and lift me up. But what about hanging out with people who are healthy? What about sticking with those who purpose in their heart to build up their body, the temple of the Holy Spirit (I Corinthians 6:19).
Are you Finished?
Personally it is not fun for my wife and I to sit down and eat a meal with believers who are trashing their body with processed, toxic and unclean foods. It isn’t a judgement issue for me it is after seeing so many clients for 25 years suffer from a lack of discipline in their eating habits that they don’t realize the damage they are doing until the doctor gives them the fearful words that disease has set in. personally I have been there and done that and really don’t want to listen to label readers that lack creativity and discipline to search into a persons life to find real answers to the cause of their suffering. I remember the doctor telling me basically in a paraphrase, well you have ankylosing spondylitis and the disease is not curable. You will be stricken for the rest of your life. We can manage your disease with medication and possibly surgery but you will inevitably end up in a wheel chair until you die. I felt like I was finished at that point.
What Lifestyle Habits can I do to Overcome this Condition?
So where did I miss the mark that led me to a diseased condition at the age of 24? Below is a list of lifestyle habits that have saved me every day.
