What God Has In Mind In Creating Man

God really had in mind that the man He created will enjoy good health. Good health is a promise as well as a right which God’s children are called to enjoy. We can see in the lives of so many children of God who lasted so long on earth as long as they lived in accordance with God’s standard. They enjoyed such an extraordinary state of good health that other people began to see them as wonders on earth.

To be a wonder is to arouse awe, surprise or astonishment, especially through doing something extraordinary. It is doing something extremely new to someone’s knowledge or expectation. In the world today, we come across so many astonishing occurrences that make us wonder. God made each and every man to be a wonder on earth. In Isaiah 8:18, 49:5, we understand that God’s children are extraordinary people who exhibit a life that impacts or amazes others to intimidation. In other words, our lives should so affect people that they would admire us and also feel intimidated. This reality is neither coincidental nor accidental, but a divine arrangement, that means, it is a calling (Isaiah 49:5).

We saw that the Lord is set to reposition His people, and that this truth which has so far held in the negative is to be realized in the positive (Psalm 126:1-3). God’s children have a position of excellence in the knowledge of God and the attendant excellence in other virtues. It must always be borne in mind that a wonder is simply one that is an amazement; some extraordinary person that causes bewilderment on contact with others or when heard about. This wonderment should be in all ramifications of life – spiritually, physically (health wise), materially, matrimonially, mentally, etc.

The Holy Scriptures is replete with people whose health evidently exhibited some uniqueness; among whom are Abraham, Moses, Job, and Anna. The will of God is that His covenant people should always be in health and for that reason the Lord Jesus died. And when the Lord visits His people, good health shall be the testimony of the generality of the assembly (Isaiah 33:24). However, some factors are militating against this truth of God (Hosea 4:6). These factors include Ignorance of the problem of sin, ignorance of the peril of dirtiness and carefree living, ignorance of the preciousness of rest, ignorance of the power of a sound mind, ignorance of the pertinence of adequate dieting, ignorance of the profit of regular supervised scriptural fasting, and ignorance of the place of physical exercise.

A wonder lives in divine health, and in the event of any health challenge arising from an unforeseen circumstance (like some unwise habit, demonic attack, etc), divine healing ultimately follows. The sickly must forthwith get repositioned for excellence in health, by adjusting his mind to implicitly believing God’s truth, adjusting his habits and confessing his way unto salvation of good health. If you are not presently enjoying good health as a child of God, something must be wrong with your relationship with Him. I encourage you to check your life a repair your relationship with Him. Good health is one of the things God had in mind in creating man. You MUST enjoy it!
