#DevotionsforAHealthierYou: Phillipians 4:13
Our lifestyle choices cause us to be unhealthy. Changing old unhealthy habits is not easy but it’s essential if we want to become healthier and live a better quality of life.
God wants to assist us in living a healthy life and He has given us a helper – the Holy Spirit helps full us with strength and power to live the kind of life that God wants us to live and this includes the ability to make desired lifestyle changes.
The Bible tells us that the same mighty power that raised Christ from his grave is available to us.
(Romans 8:11 and Ephesians 1:19-20)
One key to being empowered by God’s Spirit is to recognize that in our own strength we can not do what we can in God’s strength and power. We must recognize this and depend on the power of God to work in us. We must submit and surrender to God, then embrace the spiritual truth that God’s power is made perfect in our weakness. (2 Corinthians 12:9)
Your Body is God’s Temple, (1 Corinthians 3:16), therefore, we have a responsibility to care for His temple. It’s an awesome thing that God’s Spirit empowers us to live in such a way that we can care for His temple as a matter of love and worship to God. One beneficial by-product is that by appropriating God’s strength and power, we can live a lifestyle conducive to good health.
I encourage you to strengthen your heart, mind and body by filing up on God's power through the study of His Word and with the help of the Holy Spirit. Then appropriate that strength and power to make any physically, mentally and spirituality healthy lifestyle changes you might want to make….. all for the glory of God!
