Dear friend, I hope all is well with you and that you are as healthy in body as you are strong in spirit.
3 John 1:2 NLT
There is a supernatural connection between my spirit and my body. When my spirit is encouraged and connected with the Spirit of God, it releases health into my body. When my spirit is depressed and disconnected from the Spirit of God, my body becomes tired, lazy, and sick.
I am not saying that my spirit being out of alignment with God causes every sickness. But I do know that when I get my spirit in alignment and connection with God, whatever may be going on in my body begins to depart, and health begins to return.
In our passage today, John connects the health of the body with the strength of the spirit. I believe when we keep our spirit strong, we are putting ourselves in a place to keep our bodies strong. Many people in the medical profession will agree that someone’s inner health is a key to restoring their physical health.
What are you doing to keep your inner self healthy?
I take daily vitamins for my physical health. I am a big believer in being sure I give my body the vitamins it needs to function. I also see that my spirit man needs some daily ”vitamins.” I am sure to get God’s Word into my spirit every day. I listen to podcasts and teachings to feed my spirit man. I read to get new truth into my spirit. I listen to worship music. I spend time in prayer. These all combine to be vitamins for the spirit.
Holy Spirit, please help me develop a daily habit of taking spiritual vitamins to build my spirit man and stay connected with You.
