"Trusting God is Good
for Your Health"
“I said to myself, ‘Relax, because the Lord takes care of you.’”
Psalm 116: 7 NCV
God has given you the gift of your body. In the Bible He has given you an owner’s manual, telling you how you need to take care of this body so that you can live a long life.
Most of us know what we should do. Eat right, exercise and get a good night’s sleep. If you smoke, stop smoking. If you drink too much, stop doing it.
But there’s another health factor you may not have thought of for living long and well. Today's verse reminds us that trusting God is good for your health. When you trust God, you don’t have to worry.
The Bible says in Proverbs 14: 30, “A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.” You see it’s not just about the physical things you do. It’s about the spiritual and emotional things that you allow to live in your body. If you allow yourself to be filled up with worry, fear, lust, guilt, anger and bitterness or any other spiritual or emotional diseases, it’s going to shorten your life.
So you have a choice to make:
1. You can worry or worship.
2. You can pray or panic.
The more you worship and pray, the less you’ll worry and panic. Relax, God is taking care of you!
Peace in the Lord,
