Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
Ninety percent of all visits to a primary care physician are stress-related. We don’t realize how much our emotions, attitudes, and thoughts affect us physically. Today’s Scripture implies that if our soul is unhealthy, it will spill over into our physical health. If you’re living worried, bitter, guilty, and angry, those negative emotions and that negative energy poison your soul and weaken your immune system’s ability to fight off sickness. You lie in bed worrying about your finances all night, can’t sleep, then wonder why you have no energy, your blood pressure is high, and you have constant headaches. It might be related to bitterness over what someone did years ago. You can’t take in toxins and not be poisoned. If you get your soul healthy, many of the physical ailments will go away. It’s all interconnected.
Is your soul healthy? Ask God to show you anything that is causing you negative emotions, then release it to Him. When you empty out the unforgiveness, the worry, the discouragement, God will cause your soul to prosper and fill you with joy and healing.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You want both my soul and health to prosper in all things. I choose to empty out any negative emotions and attitudes so You can fill me with peace and joy. I believe that You will help me keep my soul and my body whole and healthy. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
