Trust Leads to Good Health - TGIF

Post  Pa Ta Rick on Tue Nov 05, 2013 10:12 am

God has given you the gift of your body and it comes with an owner's manual - the Bible. In it are all the instructions you need to take care of yourself and live a long life.

You already know the basics - proper nutrition, exercise, a good night's rest. Today I want to look at the first of four health factors you may not have thought of for living long and well.

Trusting God is good for your health -- "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding." (Proverbs 3:5 NIV) Why is trusting in God good for your health? When you trust Him then you don't worry.

Psalm 116:7 says, "I said to myself, "Relax, the Lord is going to take care of you'" (NCV). If you really trust in God, you're going to be less stressed.

You have a choice - You can either worry or worship. You can either pray or panic.

The more you pray, the less you'll panic. Relax, because God will take care of you!

The Bible says in Proverbs 14:30, "A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones" (NIV). It's not just what you eat that matters, it's what eats you. You can have all the right macrobiotics and organic food, but if your body is filled with resentment, worry, fear, lust, guilt, anger, bitterness, or any other emotional disease, it's going to shorten your life.

This message basically just clarifies the last one. Now I know exactly what was meant when the devo said spiritual health leads to physical health. Its a really good point that one who lives in resentment and bitterness their whole life will live a short and unhappy life. You can't truly be healthy until your mind is healthy too

This is just like the previous devotion, you have to trust God with your fullest extent. Then, God will give you a much more healthier life in return. If you continue to stress and panic, you will have a shorter lifespan. You should have faith in the Lord, so he will take care of you and make sure you live a good life.

I think that trusting in God leads to good health in more ways than one.
One of the ways is mentioned in the devo, about how trusting in God relieved your stresses and worries because you know that God can take care of anything. But I think that a more influential reason why trusting in God leads to good health is because, as David says,
Psalms 23:2 "He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters,"

In this psalm, David is saying that the Lord is our shepherd. He says that God guides us in paths of righteousness, and though David walks through dark valleys, he fears no evil because God is with Him. Fearing no evil is putting the trust in God, and when he allows God to guide him, David says that He shows him the right way to go, that He comforts him, and that He provides enough to overflow.

Basically what i'm saying is that trusting in God not only eases our minds, but we will benefit from all the goodness and love that comes when we let God be our guide and shepherd, one of the benefits being health.

Psalms 23:6 "Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever."

Again, like the other recent devos, following God's will and putting our trust in Him increases not only our spiritual health, but our mental, emotional, and physical health as well. When we know that God is in control and we surrender to Him, our minds become far clearer and we aren't as stressed by wordly concerns. So trusting in God leads to good health, which then worships God as we take care of the bodies He has given us.
