Being Healthy Teaching

I Created something for my Church Womens Group to help us get on the right track to good health while studying the proverbs 31 Woman.  God gave me some scriptures to help with this along with other info that has helped me and sone research I have done on my own to sta healthy.  This Proverbs 31 woman did so many things and she really could only be successful by God Grace and a healthy body.  Please read this and be blessed.

Today we are going to speak out being healthy.  God needs his people to be in good health in order to do what we need to do for his kingdom.   As for the woman, we were created to be a helpmate and therefore we need to be in good health to help take care of our spouses and children, overall to be a blessing to those we come in contact with.

The Health of Your Spirit

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.  Galatians 5:22-23

You can’t be physically healthy if your spirit is not healthy.  God breathe life into a empty vessel his spirit.

Do you not know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you? If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him. For God's temple is holy, and you are that temple.1 Corinthians 3:16-17

The proverbs 31 woman could not be all that she was unless she had the fruits of the spirit and considered her body as the temple of God. 

The Health of you physical body

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.  Psalms 139:13-16

He worked on your body alone.  He made everything perfect.  He made you where you could prosper and live a good life.   He did not wonderfully make something bad.  He wonderfully made you good, whole and complete.

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.   Genesis 1:27

Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.  3 John 1:2

Promise from the bible about our health

But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed.  Isaiah 53:5

Here are a list of healthy foods that have helped me during my struggle with eating right and I got it from the book of Daniel.  Daniel 10:3

Daniel ate only foods from the ground and the bible said that he was more younger looking than those that ate the choice foods.  This information can be used for fasting and more so to add more healthy foods to your diet.  If you have health issues where it will not be best to complete abstain from food during a fast doing the Daniel fast will be perfect.  There are so many healthy foods that are considered the foods that Daniel ate because they came from the ground.

If you would like to visit the site to see all that it entails.  She has so much information about the food and about the Daniel fast and how to prepare for a Fast if that is what you are seeking.
