God's Prescription For Good Health: Trust

I said to myself, "Relax, because the Lord takes care of you." Psalm 116:7 (NCV)

"If you really trust in God, you're going to be less stressed. "

God has given you the gift of your body and it comes with an owner's manual - the Bible. In it are all the instructions you need to take care of yourself and live a long life.

You already know the basics - proper nutrition, exercise, a good night's rest. Today I want to look at the first of four health factors you may not have thought of for living long and well.

Trusting God is good for your health. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding" (Proverbs 3:5 NIV). Why is trusting in God good for your health? When you trust Him then you don't worry.

Psalm 116:7 says, "I said to myself, 'Relax, the Lord is going to take care of you'"  (NCV). If you really trust in God, you're going to be less stressed.

You have a choice -

  • You can either worry or worship.
  • You can either pray or panic.

The more you pray, the less you'll panic. Relax, because God will take care of you!

The Bible says in Proverbs 14:30, "A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones" (NIV). It's not just what you eat that matters, it's what eats you. You can have all the right macrobiotics and organic food, but if your body is filled with resentment, worry, fear, lust, guilt, anger, bitterness, or any other emotional disease, it's going to shorten your life.
