Is Our Heavenly Father interested in nutrition?

An unequivocal yes!

Mankind has been sold a bill of goods concerning nutrition.  The pharmaceutical companies would have you believe that an ailment arises from the lack of one of their products.  They tout “quality of life” as their mantra when selling you drugs to sleep, relieve pain, or deal with chronic inflammation.  When you respond to their arguments, you simply put more toxic substances in your body.  Don’t get me wrong, there is a time to pick the best of two outcomes.  Our bodies are overloaded with toxins from the air, water, and the food we ingest.  Our body’s immune system becomes overloaded and at some point, chronic health issues surface.  Often, the root cause of the health issue is not obvious.  The physician’s diagnosis is only as good as his or her training.  They are not “GOD” even though some of them would have you believe that they are.

As you increase in your sensitivity to the Holy Spirit and hear Our Heavenly Father’s voice, you can improve your health. You can start by asking if a particular food is good for you.  You can look at produce at the market and ask which fruit or vegetable should be picked.  This may not seem important to you but these small acts help you develop a sensitivity to your body’s needs.  Instead of satisfying your appetite, you begin to satisfy your hunger.  That is one aspect of dying to the old man.

Our Heavenly Father directed me to help Doug Evers in his nutrition business.  Though I thought I already had plenty on my plate (pun intended), HE wanted me to help Doug.  We’ve been taking Doug’s supplements for about 15 years and I suspect the fact that neither my wife nor I are taking any medication at this point in our lives is a testimony to that path we chose.  This year I expect the Remnant will begin to manifest notably improved health.  Some will be healed miraculously.  Others will be healed by hearing HIS Voice and responding to a change in diet, exercise, and supplements.  Some will lose weight to a more desired level.  All of this will be due to being led by the Spirit.  Allergies will no longer be a problem to those who respond.  Chronic inflammation will cease.  Overall wellbeing will improve.  In light of this, let’s look at the daughter of Jairus.  His name means “Whom GOD enlightens”.   Jairus was an overseer or ruler of the synagogue.  It was his duty to select the readers or teachers in the synagogue, to examine the discourses of the public speakers, and to see that all things were done with decency and in accordance with ancestral usage.

Jairus heard Jesus speak and knew that Jesus could heal his 12 year old daughter.  He asked Jesus to come and heal her.  Jesus responded and proceeded to Jairus’ house.  On the way to the house, the woman with the issue of blood enters the picture:

Mark 5:25 Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years, 26 and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse.

Does this scenario sound familiar?  Our current healthcare system is designed to extract all your money from you whether you get healed or not.  In her case, she grew worse.  The physicians were obviously not led by the Spirit or she would have improved.  At any rate, her faith healed her.  Jesus did not have to formulate some long prayer of petition toward Heaven.  Virtue or power flowed out of Him into her and the result was a full restoration.  As Jesus was speaking to the woman:

35 While He was still speaking, some came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house who said, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?”

Jesus was not moved by the troubling report:

36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not be afraid; only believe.”  37 And He permitted no one to follow Him except Peter, James, and John the brother of James. 38 Then He came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and saw a tumult and those who wept and wailed loudly. 39 When He came in, He said to them, “Why make this commotion and weep? The child is not dead, but sleeping.”

40 And they ridiculed Him. But when He had put them all outside, He took the father and the mother of the child, and those who were with Him, and entered where the child was lying. 41 Then He took the child by the hand, and said to her, “Talitha, cumi,” which is translated, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.” 42 Immediately the girl arose and walked, for she was twelve years of age. And they were overcome with great amazement. 43 But He commanded them strictly that no one should know it, and said that something should be given her to eat.

Jesus raises the little girl from the dead but He didn’t stop there.  He commanded them to giver her something to eat.  Jesus was specifically concerned about her immediately eating after being raised from the dead.  His focus on her nutrition necessitates our focus as well.  The story could have ended without this little fact.  However, Our Heavenly Father placed it there so we would be enlightened to the priority of nutrition as subtle as it may be.  We tend to think that our spiritual walk has little or no consideration for our physical wellbeing, that we must somehow “suffer for Christ” in the physical.  Jesus is in the physical healing business.  He fed the multitudes.  Our Heavenly Father is as concerned about your daily nutrition as HE is in other aspects of your daily walk.  HE is sufficiently capable of dealing with you in all areas.  Each of us has a unique ideal weight.  Ask Our Heavenly Father what it is, then ask HIM to guide you to that weight.  Be sensitive to HIS direction and HE will instruct you on what to eat, what to abstain from, and what supplements to take.  Out of HIS Love for us, HE gave us food Laws to live by.  It is a challenge to testify of HIM when we are chronically sick.  This must be an area of interest to HIM since HE directed me to write about it today.
