DCLM Daily Manna 22 July 2019 – MESSAGE:
“You are what you eat” is a popular saying in modern times. But long before our age, the Lord knew the value of food in health; hence, His instructions to Israel on the type of food they should consume.
One noticeable feature in creatures is the differences and varieties that mark them out. Although they all have the features of living beings, their peculiar feature distinguishes one from the other. In the passage, the Lord specifically commanded Israel on the kind of animals and sea food they could eat and those they must avoid because they were unclean animals. They were not expected to be like the idolatrous nations around them that did not discriminate between clean and unclean animals.
Without good health, there is no happiness, peace and no success. Health is more valuable than money. No wonder the saying: “Health is wealth”. A person who must be wealthy and successful must first be sound in health. Money cannot buy health and happiness. So, we must be mindful of what we eat which could be harmful to our health.
Today: DCLM Daily Manna 22 July 2019 by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi
God is very concerned about your overall health: physical, emotional and spiritual. The human mind and body are all interrelated and interdependent. What affects one affects the other. If the body is sick because of unhealthy eating, our minds cannot function the way God intended. You cannot enjoy fellowship with God and man – serve in the church and be a blessing to others. You can be considered healthy only when you are in a good spiritual, emotional, mental and physical condition. God’s desire is that you prosper and be in health.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God is as interested in our physical welfare as He is in our spiritual wellness.
DAILY BIBLE READING: 2 Chronicles 9-12
