Does God want you to be healthy? Is it of any concern to Him? As we open up our Bibles and look at the Word of God through the lens of health, we observe a theme. That God, does in fact, care deeply about our health. In fact, it is His intention that we live healthy and prosper. All to fulfill the calling to further His Kingdom.
I will be the first to admit, I am not a doctor; however, through my 26 years of pastoring, I have seen how stress and reactions to it greatly impact physical health. There is vast research that indicates the negative impacts of stress on our health, confirming exactly what God says.
“A merry heart does good, like medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones.”—Proverbs 17:22
Stress will come our way and it impacts our minds. However, we have a choice about our attitude towards it.
God’s will for your health…
- “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.”—3 John 2
- “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”—Philippians 4:19
The Lord’s intention through His Son, is that we not only have eternal life, but that we have a long and healthy life on earth.
We are surrounded by terror and negativity. The enemy is prowling around, waiting for us to take the bait. The good news is that we can rise up out of this battlefield in our minds and come in agreement with the Lord’s desire for our physical bodies to be healthy.
Chose not to align yourself with the negative thoughts in your head. Though dismay be happening all around you, instead you must…
- Pray and meditate. Go to the Healer in prayer. Align your thoughts with His thoughts and proclaim His truth over your life.
- Get into God’s Word. Continuously renew your mind with the covenant promises of God through His Word.
It is all about making the decision to be self-disciplined. The Spirit provides this fruit for our good, that we may come into agreement with the Lord and His will.
Healing is the children’s bread! I pray that your soul believes God’s Word today and that His healing power is released over any stress in your life.
Go to Him in prayer when you are experiencing negative thoughts and situations, and ask that He refresh your spirit and mind in Him… and who He says you are in Yeshua’s blood. You will experience peace as the terror lifts off of your soul and you once again believe in God’s goodness over your life.

“Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”—Deuteronomy 31:6
