God original and perfect plan for man was his overall and perpetual health. Though this plan was altered when man sinned and became vulnerable to sickness, disease and death, it was reactivated through the vicarious death of Jesus,which redeemed humanity from sin, sickness and Satan. Now you can enjoy complete soundness of body,mind and soul when you acknowledge and accept the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross, by confessing,asking for God forgiveness repenting of those sins, living your life for the Lord and obeying his health laws.
Unfortunate, many people have not this provision for divine health and wholeness, because of their willful rejection of the provision, sickness and disease ravage the world in spite of the ever increasing use of high cost of modern medicine. Even the few that accept Jesus in theirs lives still fall sick because of their lack of proper understanding of this provision. The Bible mention the following as the cause of ill health, even among believers in Christ.
1). Unhealthy habit– Genesis 1-29 and God said behold ,I have given you every herb bearing seed,which is upon the face of the of all the earth, and every tree in which is fruit of a tree yielding seed to you it shall be for meat.” But instead of taking grain, vegetable, fruit and nut we replace it with eating junk, frozen food and unhealthy fat. To enjoy divine healing and health we need to obey God health law. Proverb 4:20-22 let us read it.
2). unholy lifestyle – holiness keep keep you healthy but unholy lifestyle infects you with diseases. STD such as HIV is transmitted among human primarily through indiscriminate sex, in a flagrant disobedience to God holy command in Leviticus 18. If sex were limited to the marriage bed, the chances of catching such a disease would be infinitesimal
3). unhopeful mind – a mind that isn’t hopeful of having its desire met is depressed, un happy and unhealthy. But a hope full mind is happy, vibrant and healthy. Proverb13:12 say..hope deferred maketh the hearts sick: but when desire cometh, it is a tree of life.
4). unsettled home – if you re having issue with your spouse, children or in law. You’d have stress at home, and stress zap your concentration, make you irritable or depressed, and harms yours personal and professional relationship. Over time, it also weaken your immune system and makes you susceptible to a variety of ailments.
5). unhealthy habit – good hygiene promote sound health. If you want to minimize your risk of infection and enhance your overall health, therefore, you should brush and floss.,bath regularly, wash your hands, especially after toilet do your laundry,wear clean cloth and clean your house and your surrounding. Other wise you will pay regular visit to doctor.
6)unhappy disposition: the Bible say a merry heart does good like a medince: but a broken spirit drieth the bone. un happy disposition or sadness can hamper your health
Sadness can trigger stress,suppress the body immune system, leaving it more vulnerable to autoimmune disease like arthritis and multiple sclerosis
That can lead to a negative self image that in turn may leave the victim vulnerable to eating disorder like anorexia nervosa
And cause anxiety and low self esteem, which if not addressed may make sufferers through substance or suicidal behaviour.
As a child of God if we can follows and obey all this God health law,we will be able to have a divine healing and health.
