Feasting on God’s Faithfulness

Surely, poor nutrition is not the only reason a person may manifest sickness.  There are so many factors both environmental and spiritual that are involved in one’s health.  Nutrition is just one avenue through which good health is maintained and it should be applied in a way that does not hinder one’s priority of keeping God first or maintaining fellowship with other believers.  The body is “fearfully and wonderfully made” with all the systems in place to utilize good things and eliminate bad things. (Psalm 139:14)  However, if its’ warning signals are ignored for too long, the body’s self-cleansing mechanisms can get over loaded and sickness can manifest itself.  It is not God’s will for His people to suffer in sickness.  God wants His people to be whole in every category.

1 Thessalonians 5:23:
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
