Most people believe that this title statement is true to a certain extent – yet do we fully realize the impact our choices bring in a world meticulously designed according the principles of cause and effect? Christians are usually familiar with the important concept of ‘sowing and reaping’. Following instructions provided to us – in the Bible and in a righteously governed society – generally brings much lifetime success . This trustworthy idea is especially applicable in how we nurture our physical, mental and spiritual health.
Medical schools of the twentieth century have sadly failed to teach prospective physicians to a significant extent the detrimental effect that poor nutrition, toxic substances, and even long term prescription drugs can have on a human body. People have been indoctrinated with the allopathic notion that our genes determine virtually all of our health prognoses. Thankfully, though, in recent years, a more osteopathic view is beginning to take hold in western societies. Increasing rates of immune issues, diabetes, cancer, and mental illnesses are compelling people to question the status quo of modern medicine.
In all certainty, what we choose to put in our bodies determines our future health condition to a very significant extent. Becoming educated about wise diet options and avoidance of toxic substances can enable us to achieve all-around wellness. Eating good fats and complex carbohydrates – as well as eliminating exposure to hazardous chemicals and metals – will go a long way toward preserving the amazing bodies and minds the Creator intended us to have for over a century of service to Him in this world.
The most important act of free will we can endeavor – in this fleeting existence of ours – is the consistent practice of heartfelt prayer. Throughout the old and new testament scriptures, the Jewish people and followers of the promised Messiah, Jesus Christ, understood the power of seeking the eternal God’s intervention for provision and healing. Biblical examples are cited therein of how they praised the Lord’s goodness and sought His wise counsel for life decisions. How much more important – in this increasingly complicated day and age – is it then for us to consult His guidance for acquiring optimal health and maximizing the potentials of ourselves and those close to us? How greatly our faith is strengthened when we marvel upon hearing testimonies of people on the brink of death miraculously restored by the collective, fervent intercession of prayer warriors. Unquestionably, there is no greater single act of human free will than connecting with the One who is not only sovereign over individual human concerns – but mysteries lying far beyond all the intricacies of this diverse creation!
BIBLE QUOTE: “The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.” – James 5:16
