The Light Daily Devotional – Take Care of your Body
Focus: Take Care of your Body
The word for today
No matter how great your mandate and the anointing of God upon your life may appear to be; the fact remains that you need your body to be who the Lord wants you to be. The way you use your body will determine your pace and how far you will go in life!
“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. 3 John 1:2 KJV
Your body is the vehicle conveying you to your destination in destiny. The ultimate desire of God for you is that you experience prosperity in three critical aspects of life: Physical or material prosperity, Spiritual prosperity and prosperity in terms of good health.
Even though you need self-denial in terms of discipline and putting your body into subjection to fulfil your mandate in life; the fact remains that you must cooperate with every natural law that supports good health.
One of the most important ways your life can be useful to God is to stay healthy. Taking care of your body is an important aspect of your service to God. There are several men with promising futures whose dreams and aspirations for God and their individual lives were cut off due to the manner they handled their bodies.
Take a rest and sleep when you should, give yourself exercise, keep your environment clean, eat good food and treat any ailment in your body. Learn how to retreat periodically from your daily routine activities. You can only enjoy the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living when you are healthy!
What priority do you give to taking care of your body?
Prayer: Lord! I receive the grace to prosper and be in health, even as my soul prospers in Jesus name. Amen!
Emphasis: The Lord wants you to stay healthy to fulfil His purpose on earth!
Have a Gracious Tuesday!
