Positive emotions can be seeds of better health and quality of life. “Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; do not fret— it only causes harm” (Psalms 37:8 NKJV). Billy Graham said, “Many diseases of both body and mind are self-inflicted. For example, ulcers are often caused by worry and anxiety. Heart attacks are caused many times by overexertion. Unjustified worry, fear, prejudice, hatred, and envy can contribute to mental stress, which could lead to mental illness.” LORD, I choose to feel good for good health and a good day.

Regardless of how healing occurs, God is always the Healer (Exodus 15:26). God heals by miracle and/or by medicine. Yahweh added 15 years to King Hezekiah’s life by healing him from terminal illness, using miracle and medicine in the form of a poultice of figs (2 Kings 20:1-7). Apostle Paul operated in miraculous healings, but he had Luke the doctor on his mission team (Colossians 4:14), and Paul prescribed grape wine for Timothy’s frequent stomach ailments (1 Timothy 5:23). Yet the LORD prefers to keep us in health through nutrition, making healthy food our best medicine.
