Day 17 - Health
Thank You for good health today that I am strong and full of strength.
God wants us to be healthy so that we can be strong to do all the things he has planned for our lives. The Bible tells us that our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit we are not our own. We were bought by the blood of Jesus that was shed for us on the cross. Imagine if a good friend gave you the keys to their multimillion dollar house to use for the day. How would you treat that house? You would be very careful to make sure you left it in the same condition it was given to you if not better. God wants us to do the same and take care of the bodies He has given us to use here on earth. Where do you need God’s help today to show Him that honor? Maybe it’s making better choices about what you eat. Maybe you need His help to overcome an addiction to food, drugs, alcohol or nicotine. God gives us the power to make wise choices today so that we can be healthy and do more for Him tomorrow. If you are sick in your body because of situations out of your control, God can give you the strength and healing you need today as well. Let’s thank Him by faith for good health.
God, today I thank You that you are helping me make healthy choices. I confess that I have made some poor choices regarding my body. Thank You for Your grace and mercy today that covers me and heals me. Help me to remember today that my body is not my own and that Your Holy Spirit is living in me. By the power of Your Spirit, make me strong, heal me, and protect me in Jesus’ name, Amen!
