Healthy living is growing in popularity like it is a style or something in vogue. But the truth is that it has been in existence right from the beginning of time.
When God made man, for those who believe in the story of creation, He gave them everything to eat.
Healthy living was in His mind because He made them in his image – never to fall ill. The foods are to complement.
Genesis 1: 29 and 30 read: “Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.
“And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food”.
As the world population grew, man’s insatiable desire began to show in everything he does. he wants something more than vegetables. He wants garnished foods. He wants his drinks sweetened. He wants to eat fat in meat because they are sweet to his taste buds.
Why Christians Should Embrace Healthy Living
Civilisation and development brought with it some burden, some of which are illnesses of different dimensions.
Healthy living should be a lifestyle for everyone especially those in the household of God.
However, Christians have turned out to be more sickly than others who do not believe in the scriptures.
Everything God created was medicine to humans – Ezekiel 47:12. But many have drifted away, giving attention more to foods in cans and sweetened drinks.
Sadly, these kind of foods have been linked to cancer that is increasingly becoming the most common ailment.
Concerning these things, our Health Coach, Lauren Osewezina, gave a talk at the Tabernacle of Praise, RCCG, Ibeju Lekki, Lagos State.
She highlighted why Christians should embrace healthy living and adjust lifestyle to attain the supernatural they were created for.
Interestingly, everyone who has practiced healthy living has a testimony of good health. But the devil battles to ensure Christians miss out on this blessing.
Sadly, most Christians have devoted more time to praying for physical healing, than they have in praying for the salvation of souls.

Why is it that it is in the Christendom, that you find people who are vigorously seeking for the fruit of the womb?
Unfortunately many of them are aware that our God has said: “None shall be barren in the land”.
Everything that we need to make our body more fertile is in the plants that haves been given to us as food.
Eating them increases chances of conception. For instance, people have eaten food with more folate, magnesium and calcium and have walked themselves into rewiring their hormones and becoming pregnant.
