Using Healthy Nutrition To Fight Troubles

God wants you to be healthy from the inside, out. It’s so important that you are living from a healthy soul, and your soul is ultimately nourished from the Word of God. Nutrition has significant values and benefits to you. Think about the preventative benefits of eating right. Plant-based foods, such as fruits, vegetables, herbs, and seeds’ are illness-fighting foods that can prevent a multitude of sicknesses. Not only are healthy foods healthy in terms of prevention; but when you are going through an illness, there are foods that you can put into your body that help fight the specific illnesses that you have. God has given you these healthy foods for your health. Just as there are physical illnesses, there are also spiritual illnesses in life that you encounter. Those spiritual illnesses are called troubles. Life is filled with troubles. There’s either something troubling you right now, some trouble that has just ended, or there is a trouble you don’t know about, that’s about to happen. Jesus, Himself, said that in this world, you will have trouble. Just as we need physical nutrition to combat the illnesses of the body, we need spiritual nutrition to fight off the troubles of life.
