I was reading in Proverbs 3 the other day when I came across a Scripture that will be monumental when it comes to my HEALTHY BODY. I was reading from the Amplified Version of the Bible, which means it gives more details on key words. It says in Pro. 3:7, “Be not wise in your own eyes; reverently fear and worship the Lord and turn [entirely] away from evil. 3:8) It shall be HEALTH TO YOUR NERVES and sinews, and marrow and moistening to your bones.”
Wow, that means the beginning of the END of ALS! It’s saying in verse 7, Don’t be a know-it-all. God is the only One that knows-it-all and we should seek Him first. Then it tells us to, “… reverently fear and worship the Lord and turn [entirely] away from evil.” When it says to, “reverently fear” God, it’s not telling us to BE afraid of Him. It means – He is serious about His children, that’s us. When He says, yes, He means, yes. And then God says, “turn [entirely] away from evil.” That means ENTIRELY away from evil. Don’t worry, Jesus will help you.
So, how does this benefit someone with ALS? The next verse, Pro. 3:8 says, ”It shall be HEALTH TO YOUR NERVES and sinews, and marrow and moistening to your bones.” That’s how. ALS is a horrible disease that attacks the NERVE cells (neurons) responsible for controlling voluntary muscle movement. Well, according to those verses, the ones who apply what God is saying will be blessed with HEALTH TO MY NERVES! Am I earning my way? No. I’m just obeying. The healthy nerves are a byproduct that shine for the glory of God.
Remember, everything, and I mean EVERYTHING comes from within the realm of the spirit. It might be salvation, deliverance, peace, joy, comfort, finances, healing, wisdom, or restoration… they all begin through His Word or an Intimate Relationship with God.
