Healthy food

Healthy Food

One definition of healthy food is food that gives you all the nutrients you need to stay healthy, feel well, and have plenty of energy.

Notice it gives us ALL the nutrients we need to stay healthy. 

I believe God speaks this too. He desires that we have health as a lifestyle that we live through Him, for ourselves, and others. This is huge because in Jesus we can be healed, we can be healthy and we can be whole.

”O Lord, if you heal me, I will be truly healed; if you save me, I will be truly saved. My praises are for you alone!“

Jeremiah‬ ‭17‬:‭14‬

Isn’t this what we all want? Yes!

To have this be our reality, we must choose to eat healthy food as a way of life. Spiritually, what we eat determines the quality of our life, just like our daily diet. 

If we are what we eat, eventually, what we live on will show up in the way we live. We see this all the time with a food diet, but we also see it with our spiritual diet. Healthy food produces healthy living. Healthy food produces healthy ways and outcomes in our lives. 

Jesus is our healthy food!!

”Jesus replied, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.“

John‬ ‭6‬:‭35‬

Heaven’s food nourishes us to the point we won’t hunger again or be thirsty. This speaks of fulfillment and being complete. Only Jesus can do this! His healthy food impacts our present life and eternity. It changes both realities!!

Our part is to receive healthy food and experience it. 

”Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!“

Psalms‬ ‭34‬:‭8‬

We can taste heaven’s food!!

I hope we choose healthy food as our way of life, so we are fulfilled and complete in Jesus. When we feed on this, our health will increase and we will be made whole.

So, here is what healthy food looks like through Jesus.

This is healthy food and when we choose it, our lives will reflect it. 

So, here are two things we can do to have healthy food daily.

1st – Choose Jesus.

This may sound simple, but it is profound. The reality is, that all of us choose something every day that will determine the course of our day and our actions. When we choose Jesus, we’re letting Him determine our actions, responses, decisions, and more. We do life through His ways found in His word. 

We can choose life or death daily, and God said, choose life. When we choose Jesus, we have life.

So today, choose Jesus. Let God be the leader of your day and make this a part of your daily rhythm. I do! 

I pray this every day, “Jesus I put you on the throne of my life. You’re in charge. You’re my Lord.”

2nd – Choose His word.

We choose someone’s word every day. This could the a TV show’s word, a politician’s word, a sports caster’s word, our word, someone on social media’s word, and more. The point is, that we choose every day someone’s word to impact us or even determine what we do.

But there’s a better option. We can choose His word! 

Meaning, we make His word the final authority of our lives. We live it, obey it, and walk through it daily. We choose to be under God’s leadership and guidance. We don’t do life our way, we do it His way. We don’t make decisions by our standards, we make them by His standards. 

This is how we choose His word!

Choose His word today!

Jesus is our healthy food! This can be our way of life and today is the day!

Jesus is with you and the best is yet to come,
