God is so good today I opened my email and this was Today's Word by Joel Osteen at www.joelosteen.com I surely needed this one today!!!!
Take Care for the Long Term
"Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your body and refreshment to your bones" Proverbs 3:7-8 (NASB).
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
A famous doctor once said, "It is easier to maintain good health than it is to try to regain your health once you've lost it." So please make taking care of your body a priority, and do not allow yourself to fall off the edge of health. If you want to be used for by God here on this earth, you should maintain your instrument. Though God is in complete control, you have the responsibility to take care of your body daily. Eating in an unhealthy manner may or may not be a sin, but it is certainly at least a bad idea because God wants you to keep you holy temple clean for Him and His use. Instead of relying on your own wisdom, listen to God and follow His call to keep yourself healthy.
A Prayer for Today
God, thank You that You care so much about my spiritual and my physical health. I ask today for the commitment I need to be at my best for You in every area of my life. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
