Inspired, Empowered, Connected to Be Healthy

God’s word teaches and shows us that it is not only important to take care of our spiritually health but also our physical and mental health. Although we know that to be true many times we focus on solely the spiritual or the mental and we place less value on the physical. Yet that is where the Holy Spirit of God resides. Consequently, if any one of those areas is not well than not only are we not well but the body of Christ is also not well.

Being healthy in all those areas should be something that we try to achieve daily. But what causes people to fail in any one of those areas? Is it that they don’t want to be healthy? Is it that they lack the self control or self discipline? Or is it that they just don’t know how to get from the unhealthy state to the state of being healthy? Perhaps, it is one of those things or all of those things but an individual must determine that for themselves. In fact, no one can make anyone evaluate their health in any one of those areas. The individual must want to do a self evaluation on their own to determine whether it is one of those areas two of those areas or all of those areas. However, once the individual takes the initiative then what?

The very first step in being healthy whether it is spiritual, physical or mental is to recognize that you cannot become healthy by trying to do it in your own strength. The choice to be healthy is yours but the inspiration, the encouragement, the hope, that every person needs to get them through comes from God. When you partner with the one who designed you to be healthy then you will be able to get to a place of good health. Consequently, we hear the stories all the time about people who tried to get spiritually, physically or mentally fit but the temptation to go back to their old ways was to much for them. I guarantee you that it didn’t happen overnight at some point in their spiritual, physical or mental walk they forgot to do the one thing that God teaches us in his word and that we should not be conformed to the pattern of this world, but to be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you will be able to test approve what God’s will is – His good pleasing and perfect will (Romans 12:2, (NIV). It is important to note, that God’s good perfect will for our lives is to be healthy in all areas of our life.

One might ask the question how do we refresh our Spirit? Did you know that your spirit needs to be refreshed? Have you ever had a situation were you were continually teaching another person how to live, eat and breath God? Perhaps, every time you met with the person you walked away exhausted? Well, that is because your spirit was pouring out but nothing was going back in to refresh it. Furthermore, in order for your spirit to be refreshed you must desire God to fill you anew. The Book of Acts 13:52 says that when they had prayed, the place where they had gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God with boldness. Moreover, in order to be filled with the Holy Spirit you have to desire to be connected to God and with others in prayer.

Did you know that the bible ties eating and drinking to physical exercise? There is an indication in God’s word that says that there is another pattern. How do we know that? Because He says do not be conformed to the pattern of the world. A person must know what God’s pattern is in order not to be conformed to the pattern of the world. The pattern of the world is eat and drink whatever you want, whenever you want, and as much as you want. But God’s pattern is not the same. God’s pattern says that you can eat, drink, and be merry but that it is tied to your toil and your labor (Ecclesiastes 5:18). Listen friend, if you are eating until your hearts content but you are not exercising then you are not in God’s will for your life. God is speaking of physical movement that causes you to get your heart rate up and your burning off those calories. Going to the office and sitting at your desk is not physical exercise. Walking from your seat to your boss’s office is not physical exercise. God is referring to the type of work that gets your heart rate up and your moving around to the point where it feels like physical labor. Consequently, when you do that your reward is life. When you take care of your physical body your life is extended.

Did you know that Gods’ word teaches us to exercise our minds? It says to be transformed by the renewing of our minds daily (Romans 12:2). How are you transformed? You are transformed by reading the word of God. If you have a problem with eating uncontrollably then go to God’s word and search out scriptures about self-control and start to speak them over your life daily. Why? Because over time you are going to see that your mind has been transformed to have self-control. So, the next time you go to reach for that cookie you are able to resist the temptation because your mind has been renewed daily by God’s transforming word. In fact, when you renew your mind daily with the word of God you are exercising your mind.

It is only when you exercise your prayer life individually and corporately that you are emboldened, and empowered by the Holy Spirit. It is only when you follow God’s guidance to eat healthy and exercise as an individual that you can preserve your physical temple and have the reward of a long life. It is only when you transform and renew your mind daily that you can have the strength to be disciplined in resisting temptation whether it be physical or spiritual. However, the one thing that is so obviously clear is that you cannot do it on your own strength you need God to be inspired, connected, and empowered to resist the temptations of the world to be transformed by the renewing of your mind in order to live a life that is healthy in all three areas: spiritual, physical and mental.
