“I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.” Psalm 42:11 KJV
God doesn’t intend that we abuse our bodies by giving in to excessive appetites or to slothful behavior. To the contrary, God has instructed us to protect our physical bodies to the greatest extent we can and to do otherwise is to disobey Him. God’s plan includes provisions for your spiritual, physical, and emotional health. But He expects you to do your fair share of the work. In a world that is chock full of tasty temptations, you may find it all to easy to make unhealthy choices. Your responsibility is to resist those unhealthy temptations by every means you can, including prayer.
