This at one time was a slogan for a car repair shop. If you didn’t do regular maintenance, you would pay for it later in bigger bills. We all know this is true. If you don’t save for retirement, well you will have to keep working to pay the bills. You get the idea. Some ignore these realities of life and hit that brick wall. Some are wise planners and come out just fine. It’s our health. This isn’t true. We should exercise and eat right. We know that will pay dividends. But did you know that it is God’s will for everyone of us to walk in divine health. III John 2 says this “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” The word wish means it is his will, not just a good thought. He wants everyone to be healthy.
So what can I do about it? After all it’s not up to me, it’s up to God. That isn’t true. God is constant, we are the variable. We play a part. And always remember this, it is not God trying to make us sick, it is the devil and the fact that we live in a fallen world. He is a good God and the devil is a bad devil. Just read John 10:10. “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly."
If we start now when we are younger, we’ll do well when we are older. Now I have to place a warning here. I am not talking about foolish or dangerous things. I have a disclaimer link at the end of this post, and you should always consult your doctor before you do anything. I am talking about little headaches, body aches, etc.; things that are small and benign. You can stand on God’s promises of
healing and speak to that mountain (your problem) to go away. You just have to persist and get to that child-like faith for it to work. Mark 11:23,24 tells us this “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.”
I know that I am paying now so I don’t have to face that brick wall later.
