Our health can be defined as the ability to stay free from illness and injury. Here is a question for you. Are you taking your health seriously? Unfortunately, it seems that sometimes we as men neglect this area of our lives in our pursuit of other goals. However, we may be missing an important truth. Our ability to accomplish these very same goals is often dependent in one way or another on our health. If we are neglecting our health, we may very well be limiting our ability to accomplish the things we desire. When our health is great, we are able to get more accomplished, think more clearly, have more energy, and enjoy what we have done. On the other hand, when it’s not great, we don’t get nearly as much accomplished and our ability to think clearly is often hindered.
If you are often sick, physically exhausted, or even overweight, you may be living beneath your potential in this area. If you’re in this position there is hope. We don’t have to live and function with our bodies not being in a good place. There are several ways we can change our health around for the better. Lets look at few starting with a principle that dates back to the beginning of time.
How we treat our bodies today, can have a vast impact on our health tomorrow and years from now. In Genesis 8:22 the Lord states
“While the earth remains,
Seedtime and harvest,
Cold and heat,
Winter and summer,
And day and night
Shall not cease.”
The seeds we plant in our health today are the harvest we will reap in the future. In the same way, our health today is often a result of the seeds we planted yesterday. Be it beneficial or not so beneficial.
In talking about seeds for our health let’s look at the food we eat. Are you eating healthy? Are you eating plenty of fruits and vegetables a day? Do you want to live long and be in good health? These are some questions that you may need to honestly ask yourself.
If we want to live up to our potential when it comes to our health, then we must be more conscious of what we are eating. Think about this, our human bodies are made up of millions of upon millions of cells. These cells are constantly reproducing and making new cells. In a way, our bodies are constantly being made over. Here are some interesting facts about our bodies and cell growth.
Our blood plasma renews itself every 10 days.
White blood cells renew every 120 days.
Skin Cells regenerate every 30 days.
Our stomach lining is renewed every 4 days.
Our liver regenerates every 45 days.
We have a Whole New Body every 7 years (except for a few types of cells that do not reproduce).
Pretty amazing isn’t it? The list goes on and on. So with our cells constantly reproducing and replacing each other, what are we giving our body as fuel to grow and replenish itself? In other words, if you have new blood plasma every 10 days, what are you giving your body to create this new plasma? Or let me put it this way, what kind of gas are you putting in your engine so it will run properly and trouble free. What you eat has a direct effect on your body’s ability to function. Dr. Malcolm Hill once asked me a question that forever changed my attitude about the food I eat. He asked me, “Are you eating to live, or living to eat?” Think about that. If you’re eating to live then you will be very mindful of eating anything that may harm your body or is not good for you. If you’re living to eat, then you will be less mindful of the effects your diet will have on your health.
What about exercising? Enough cannot be said about the importance of physical exercise or activity. Our bodies actually crave it. That’s why when most people are doing it, they enjoy it. Exercise also clears our minds and helps us to think more clearly and creatively. Many a politician and president have revealed that they exercise regularly, even before debates because it helps them clear their minds and focus.
Probably the most overlooked aspect of our health is our relationship with God. The bible teaches us that through the blessing of the Lord we can be in good health. The following are some scriptures that will hopefully bring to light the importance of having the blessing of the Lord in our lives.
Exodus 15:25-26… There He made a statute and an ordinance for them, and there He tested them, and said, “If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you.”
Proverbs 4:20-22, “My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.”
Exodus 23:25 “So you shall serve the Lord your God, and He will bless your bread and your water. And I will take sickness away from the midst of you.”
3 John 1:2 “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.”
God is the true giver of our health. Through these scriptures we can see that our relationship with God can have an impact on our physical wellbeing. Let us continually follow God’s lead in our lives and do what we are able to do to make sure we are not living beneath our potential in our health.
