There is an amazing picture of healthy bones in Job 21:24. The Amplified says, “His pails are full of milk (his veins are filled with nourishment), and the marrow of his bones is fresh and moist.”
Psalm 63:5 says, “My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, and my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips.” The literal is fat abundance.
Fretting causes us to lose bone mass. Psalm 37:8 says, “Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; do not fret–it only causes harm.” Fret means to gradually wear away something by rubbing or gnawing. Do you have gnawing anxiety? Philippians 4:6 Amplified says, “Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything…”
Here is a new song that helps us understand God’s way to having healthy bones.
When I thought about my circumstances I became gloomy inside. My heart was getting heavy and my peace destroyed. Then in Your Word You revealed the secret of health. My bones are affected when my heart is in despair.
You said renew your mind. Rejoice in Me. I change not. There’s no shadow in Me. No matter what happens I remain the same.
So I turned my gaze from what was dragging me down. I looked to You my victorious One. My heart began to rise like yeast in dough and my mouth opened in song.
In You I can rejoice. For You are my strength. I look away from sin to the spotless Lamb. All my sins are cleansed in Your precious blood. My heart sings through a rush of love. Yes my heart is filled with joy in You that nothing can destroy. I rejoice in You my eternal strength. My joy is full when I look to You.
