Today I am thankful for physical health.
“The general condition of the body or mind with reference to soundness and vigor.”
When it comes to taking care of our bodies and caring about our overall physical health, God wants us to take care of ourselves, as well, for we are to glorify God in our bodies:
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. – 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. – 1 Corinthians 10:31
I am thankful for physical health. And, I realize that there are people everywhere around the world who are not always so fortunate to be freed from sicknesses, illnesses, and diseases. However, I do know one thing…
God is our Almighty HEALER, and He is ABLE! God can cure sicknesses and diseases! God can and does perform miracles!
Check out the “God is Able” lyrics from Hillsong:
God Is Able
He Will Never Fail
He Is Almighty God
Greater Than All We Seek
Greater Than All We Ask
He Has Done Great Things
He Defeated The Grave
Raised To Life
Our God Is Able
In His Name We Overcome
For The Lord
Our God Is Able
God Is With Us
God Is On Our Side
He Will Make A Way
Far Above All We Know
Far Above All We Hope
He Has Done Great Things
We all know of someone who may not have their complete health – friend, family, etc. – and I pray for great healing for all of them! We can be thankful that God is our Healer!

Heavenly Father, we lift up our brothers and sisters in Christ who are suffering from any sicknesses, illnesses, impairments, and diseases.
