The state of our health is intimately connected to God and His dealings with mankind. God's health laws govern how the physical world in which we live interacts with our human body. When we are at our optimal health we are ultimately better servants for Him.
We must go back to the beginning of time to gain an understanding of God's perspective on the subject of health. It is through the scriptures that we discover the whole issue of health, healing and spirituality from God's point of view. To seek the truth in all areas of our lives is of vital importance or we will eventually face the consequences of our uninformed decisions. God has already established health laws and principles that will lead to our good. All we have to do is seek, and we will find the truth.
Let us start where the designer and creator of the earth started, Genesis 1:1, "In the beginning". In verse 26, God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness". We share the same elements of the earth and were created to have a relationship with our environment. In Genesis 2:15, Adam and Eve were given a responsibility to care for the garden. Likewise, we have a personal responsibility to care for our health.
If we utilize God's established health laws as the primary tool for our well-being and combine the help provided by trained healthcare providers, we can expect good health. In the instances we find ourselves exceeding the limits of His health laws, He is fully capable of backing up His plan with supernatural health. Hebrews 1:3 tells us that God "upholds ALL things by His own power". When we honor God's health laws and principles, He supports our very effort. This is true even when we have surpassed His protective boundaries that were place for our good. We are instructed in James 1:25 that God is much more inclined to intervene when we are busy DOING what He says.
We have a responsibility to try to live healthy. That responsibility is not only for our individual good, but extends outside of ourselves. Our choices affect our children, spouses, friends, community and calling. We as Christians are here to be an example to the rest of the world.
We bring honor and glory to Him when we show that God's health laws are equally as effective as His spiritual laws. God does not force us to comply with His principles of health any more than he forces us to do anything else. It is our CHOICE to follow His plan. Take the steps necessary to do your part to stay healthy. Experience the benefits of applying right health principles and see the result
