1 Chronicles 11:1-12:22 / Acts 28:1-31 / Psalm 9:1-12 / Proverbs 19:1-3
Psalm 9:10“And those who KNOW YOUR NAME will put their trust in You; for You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.”
Here are a few questions to ask ourselves:1. How well do I KNOW the Lord? (Not how well does He know me, but do I know Him?)2. Am I truly TRUSTING God to lead my life or do I find myself trying to ‘take over’ and make things happen in my own strength?3. Do I find myself standing confidently on God’s truth and promises (found in the Word), or do I spend a lot of time in a state of anxiety, worry, fear, etc…These are good questions to ask – kinda like getting a check up at the doctor. It’s good to stop every once in awhile and ask the Lord to show us our “condition” (“heart health”, stress levels, how we are managing pain, and diet). OUR GOD IS THE ULTIMATE HEALER – THE GREAT PHYSICIAN AND HE WANTS US TO BE HEALTHY, STRONG AND SPIRITUALLY FIT!
When we show up for our “appointment”, and ask Him to examine us, we can be expectant that He will detect every area that needs attention. He’ll enthusiastically show us the “state” of our walk with Him (how well we KNOW Him), and X-Ray our hearts to highlight any area of doubt or unbelief that may be affecting our quality of life (are we truly TRUSTING Him?).
HIS DESIRE IS TO BRING US INTO THE GREATEST HEALTH WE HAVE EVER KNOWN – there is no sickness, no “heart disease” and no pain He can’t cure. He has the ultimate Heath Care plan – it’s 100% free to all who want it. The only thing it requires is our TIME, daily check-ups (building a great relationship with our “Personal Primary Care Doctor”) a commitment to following His prescription for diet (filling ourselves with His truth, time in prayer, etc.…) and exercise (walking each day with Him) that we may be strong, healthy and spiritually fit in a world filled with toxins and disease.
