Proverbs 3:7-8 Amplified says, “Be not wise in your own eyes; reverently fear and worship the Lord and turn (entirely) away from evil. It shall be health to your nerves and sinews, and marrow and moistening to your bones.”

Our nerves, tendons, ligaments, and marrow (where new blood cells emerge to carry oxygen throughout our bodies) are negatively affected each time we do something independent of the Lord. However they are strengthened as we worship the One who created them.

Our bodies are created by the Lord.  He has made everything to work together in the most amazing synergetic way.  We disturb that flow EACH time we act independent of Him.  EACH negative thought disrupts that synchronization.

Caroline Leaf is a Christian neuroscientist.  Science is finally discovering what God says in His word.  She says that each thought affects our brain, positive or negative.  Think about that!  Our thoughts control our brain which controls our body.  This is why the Lord tells us to bring every thought captive.  This is why meditating on His word is so essential.

May your day be worship-filled.

One thought on “Worship-full

  1. Great thought! I thought of Ps. 139 where it says that we were “woven” (by God) in our mother’s womb…..skillfully wrought”. Each part intertwined with another so that if one is affected negatively–it affects the whole. Remembering we are the “temple (dwelling place) of God through the Holy Spirit” should be the best incentive to take care of ourselves, all of us body, soul and spirit.
