How many readers out there take daily supplements to stay healthy? That's great! We are suppose to take care of our bodies as they are the temple of the Lord. AMEN!
Which supplements do you take? Is it P4202122, P378, P1722, P1624, P1225, E61314151617, PH46789, P413?
These are just some of my favorites that seem to help me to stay healthy.
Oh you are probably more familiar with their common names. Scriptures from the WORD. Let's see that would be Prov 4 v 20-22, Prov 3 v 7-8, Prov 17 v 22, Prov 16 v 24, Prov 12 v 25, Ephes. 6 v 13-17, Phil 4 v 6-9, Phil 4 v 13.
You see our supplements work well to take care of little things, but when it comes to the enemy, we had better be more protected. We better have the word of GOD in us so that we can stand against him. You see your supplements can't defeat the enemy. He can only be defeated by the WORD of GOD. That is why it is so important to spend time in the WORD daily. Some people get sick and can not figure out why they can't get better. They eat right, they exercise, they do all the things their doctor tells them to do. So why can't they get better?
Doctors are great for taking care of some things, but Who is the greatest physician of all? JESUS! What does this great physician tell you to do? He says to keep His words in your heart, tied around your neck, on your forehead, before your eyes, well you get the picture. STAY IN THE WORD!
Let's look at an example in the Word, of how Jesus healed a woman who the doctors could not heal.
Luke 8 v 43-44.....But as He went, the multitudes thronged Him. Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any, came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped.
So you see she spent all her money going to different doctors trying to find a cure for her affliction, but it took a special kind of power to heal her, and that power came from her faith in the LORD.
46-48.......But Jesus said, "Somebody touched Me, for I perceived power going out from Me." Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before Him, she declared to Him in the presence of all the people the reason she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately. And He said to her, " Daughter, be of good cheer. Your faith has made you well. Go in peace.".......
Our pastor tells us to read something, even if you can only get a verse in a day. Get something in you. It's true. We have to have the word in us to fight the enemy. You know our bodies are made up of spores, so we are full of holes. We have leaks that can not be plugged up. Pastor also tells us that faith comes by hearing not by heard. In other words we have to continually hear the word of God so that our faith and strength is built up to withstand the attacks of the enemy. Oh he may let you slide a few days, because he wants you at your weakest when he attacks. But we can be assured of this. If we do not have the word of God in us, we do not have the strength it will take to fight him off when he does attack.
You see Jesus has already defeated Satan and all the curses of the world for us. But where Satan attacks us and causes us to receive these curses is through our minds. If you have enough room left in your mind that is not covered with the WORD, then when the enemy tells you something is wrong, you will start to think about that and meditate on the bad report instead of what the WORD says, that you WERE healed by the stripes on HIS back. AMEN!
1 Pet 2 v 24 .....who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness, by whose stripes you were healed......
IS 53 v 5....But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him. And by His stripes we are healed........
So I encourage you today, to not only take your daily supplements to fight off the little things, and exercise and eat healthy, but take a DAILY DOSE of the WORD to fight off the bigger attacks that are brought on by the enemy. AMEN!
See what you can find in the list of scriptures above to meditate on so that they might help you with whatever you may be going through. Here is a thought. Your doctor gives you a prescription that reads take three times a day. Are you faithful to do as the prescription says? Then I encourage you to do the same with what the GREAT PHYSICIAN tells you to do. TAKE AS NEEDED. For some of you, you may can get by on once daily, for others you may need to take 2-3 times daily or around the clock. And the good news is, there is no expiration date on THE WORD OF GOD. AMEN!
STAY IN THE WORD!
