Covenant of healing and health


Reasons why Christians fall sick

4. Carelessness.
Some Christians eat anyhow, drink anyhow, sleep anyhow and talk anyhow. Such a person is susceptible to ‘anyhow’ sickness. A lot of Christians break their fast wrongly. A particular ministry I love so much indulges in this. After their prayer meetings they break with chilled soda and processed food! Sadly, today, many of their members are not healthy, some have even died.

What are you eating? Are you eating what can kill you? God is interested in what you eat. That was why he warned the children of Israel to abstain from eating certain types of food. He even went to the extent of telling them the part of beef that must be burnt and not eaten. He told them the type of animals not to eat. A lot of people trivialize this. You don’t need to be spiritual about it. When the COVID-19 pandemic broke out, the WHO advised people to eat less of denatured and processed food. Most of these foods are poison. Eat more of natural foods. Let your food become your medicine. Mind your lifestyle. Mind what you eat. Build your immune system. Eat the right thing at the right time in the right quantity. Strengthen your immune system.

Exercise regularly. There was a time I was not paying attention to this and my body responded negatively, it was very bad. I started doing exercises. Man was designed to walk, move around rather than sit down in a place. A lot of people are living sedentary life and they want to live long. Walk around. On a daily basis, I take close to two hours prayer walk. Even the Bible says, “For bodily exercise profiteth little” 1 Tim. 4:8a. There is profit in bodily exercise no matter how little; take it.

There are other careless things that people do. Some people out of ignorance and carelessness open their borders for the enemy to attack not only spiritually but sometimes even physically. Who cooks for you? What is the level of that person’s hygiene? Must we wait for corona virus to teach us regular washing of hands and personal hygiene? Deal with carelessness and you will eliminate at least 20 percent of the reasons why people fall sick.


Heavenly Father, I worship you. I thank you for the generous provisions you have made for my well-being here and hereafter. Grant me grace to diligently adhere to your principles of divine health. Help me never to be careless again. In Jesus name, amen.
