We were created and designed to be healthy, have lots of energy and live a long, abundant life. We were NOT designed to need drugs and surgeries to keep us alive. Those things would be valuable in times of emergency such as an accident or if our immune system weakens and we contract a communicable disease. After all, Exodus 23:25 says, “You must serve only the Lord your God. If you do, I will bless you with food and water, and I will protect you from illness”. So… if we were not designed for sickness, why are we sick and fatigued?
The answer to that is that we were never designed to live on a diet that is loaded with fat, cholesterol, excess protein, processed foods and artificial ingredients. In all of human history we never ate the kind of diet that the typical American eats today. Our cells were not designed to have fat and cholesterol covering them. Our intestines were not designed to work without dietary fiber and water.
Our body needs lots of nutrients, anti-oxidants and phytochemicals so that all the millions of jobs that need to be done in our cells can be completed efficiently. Unfortunately, many people put up with arthritis, heart disease, high blood pressure, osteoporosis and other illnesses that are diet related. Our bodies are always trying to repair anything that is not right and it needs good materials to do that. We really do have wonderfully and fearfully made bodies (Psalm 139:14) and no matter how we treat them they always work to maintain health for us. If we work with our bodies instead of against them, they will reward us every time. “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10b).
