Have you thought about this before? Have faith for where you want to go! This means you have to see it and believe it first! God tells us to have faith in Him. I believe this is because we are so limited by what we can do ourselves, but we serve a God that is limitless!
So if you want to be healthy, see yourself healthy first! Ask God for a vision of where you can go and what healthy looks like for you? Check out one of my former blogs for a more in depth look at that subject! Ask God for clean motives and a pure heart in what your asking.
James 3:16 “For where envy and self seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.” This is where we have to be willing to see our own heart. If you ask for the Lord to shine his light then He will show you! I believe this scripture in James exposes why so many of us can’t seem to make headway in the area of health and fitness,” our motives.”
If we truly believe that our bodies are a temple of the Holy Spirit then this should be motivation enough to take care of our bodies! 1 Corinthians 6:20 ” For you were bought with a price, therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are Gods. Of course this is for those who are “In Christ” those that have made Jesus Christ the Lord of their life.
When I see there are areas of my heart that are not pure I repent and ask the Lord to cleanse me with the blood of Jesus. Then I ask for a pure heart and to not make this an idol. I have in fact at times put too much emphasis on this area and had to repent for that as well. Faith is not a way to get everything we want, but rather a way to get what God wants! Believe me, we want what God wants, because He is perfect in all His ways.
Ask for Faith to get where you want to go, but ask God to align your heart with His to pray His perfect will. I believe that God wants you to see yourself healthy and whole based on scripture.
James 5:15& 16 ” And the prayer of FAITH shall save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up, And if he has committed sins they will be forgiven. Confess your trespasses one to another, and pray for one another that you may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”
I believe true health begins with a relationship with Jesus Christ and is based on so much more than what we see. The more we seek God, His truth and His word the more revelation that will come. Then this will stir up the faith to get where we want to go.
My prayer today is that everyone reading this blog would come to know Jesus and His great love for us! When we receive His love we can begin to walk into a personal relationship that can change our lives if we allow it. Take us Lord to a deeper faith in you. That you alone Jesus would be glorified in all we say and do, including taking care of our bodies in Jesus name, Amen!
To your health,
