Joyce Meyer’s book, “Look Great Feel Great”
Why don’t we take care of ourselves?
• We don’t know how to take care of our physical bodies.
• We have a skewed body image planted in our minds by media and advertising
• We have lost touch with exercise.
• We have let ourselves slip into unworkable lives
• Some have become pathologically selfless
• We have lost our support
• We have forgotten our own value
Do you have any idea how valuable you are? You do not understand your own value. If you did, you wouldn’t treat yourself that way. Maybe you never learned your own importance. Maybe it’s buried under a to-do list that clamored louder for your attention than your own soul did.
God’s value system- It applies to all people and it puts your entire being (body mind, will, emotions, and spirit) right at the top of God’s list of important and valuable things. Only by keeping your spirit, soul, and body in tip-top condition can you truly do God’s work.
Holy Spirit: “I want you to get over this because you are no good to Me in this condition.”
Your body is the temple of your spirit and soul; it is the house they dwell in while on this earth. God’s word says that your body is the temple of GOD! He dwells in those who believe in Him.
1 Corinthians 6:19
Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own.
Each time we push ourselves beyond reasonable limits, we do some damage, and if we do it too often we get to a point where we can’t recover.
The devil will put lots of bad food within easy reach and let you mistake spiritual or emotional hunger for physical hunger.
If you don’t understand your own importance in the Big Plan, taking care of yourself seems pointless. You need to look great and feel great, ready to do whatever God asks of you.
