Use Or Abuse Your Influence
Let’s talk about your influence and how much power that influence can actually have on other people.
Bad things DO happen sometimes…and other times, we put ourselves in health-threatening positions. See, when you turn from HIM, you also turn from God’s protection – inviting sickness into every corner of your life!
Whether it’s chicken soup, hot water with lemon, special oils or even a day at the spa, everyone has their own unique home remedies when they get sick. But would you believe one guaranteed cure-all exists for both body AND soul, for whatever afflicts you?
You and I both know sometimes bad things do happen! But other times, we put ourselves in risky, health-threatening positions. The stress or strain you put on your body, puts you in a bad place! Mind you, I’m not a person who weighs my food or anything, but I do believe taking care of yourself has never been more important! Our society is plagued with psychological, spiritual and gluttony-spurred illnesses… whether from poor diet, sin, lack of sleep or reaping bad fruit in your life.
“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 ) The Bible tells us, when you turn from Him you also turn from God’s protection – inviting sickness into your life, your health and your relationships!
Have you opened the door to sickness by sinning, not taking care of your body, subjecting yourself to stress or something else?
The Bible details four types of healing. In addition to all types of medicines and home remedies, of course, you have the healing touch used to work miracles. But one other goes mostly unnoticed. “There is one who speaks rashly like the thrusts of a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.” (Proverbs 12:18)
If you speak rashly or use harsh words toward others, you invite sickness into your relationships and not only that, but you will reap the fruit of those rash words – usually rotten to the core! And if you have trouble controlling harsh words, you might want to print this reminder! A wise tongue brings healing. “Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.” (Proverbs 16:24)
The power of life and death is in the tongue, my friend. And it has the power to invite sickness… or to evoke healing powers in your life! You can choose to walk by condemnation, speaking worry, death and stress into your sickness. Or you can choose to walk by faith and speak life into others and into your health.
