7 Principles of Healthy Living By God’s Design

 Introduction

The Bible which is the accurate Word of God, speaks volume about our health and how to live healthy.

There are substantial undisputable data to show that God so designed us to experience and enjoy good health.

The Scripture is more than enough to guide us into good health, in fact, it’s “The Manual” for healthy living God’s way.

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth (3 John: 2).

We maintain good health through the working of the physical and spiritual immune system.

We boost our physical immunity by three basic methods, healthy eating, regular exercise and adequate rest and sleep.

We all want to apply the principles for maintaining good physical health through nutritious food, exercise, pure water, cut out junk foods, get plenty of sleep, healthy eating and loving relationships.

We need to have a better understanding of nutritious foods that boost immunity like citrus fruits, red bell peppers, broccoli, garlic, ginger, spinach, yogurt, almonds, sunflower seeds, turmeric, green tea, papaya, kiwi and others.

The same is true for all Christians to approach their spiritual health by keeping their spiritual immune systems in tip-top shape. Every believer in Jesus Christ should boost their immunity through prayer and fasting, reading, studying and meditating the scripture, cultivating pure thoughts, assemble and worship with other believers, develop and maintain good quality relationships, practice Christian service in giving, caring, and witnessing.

We need to strengthen our spiritual immune system so as to develop the ability to withstand, survive and overcome the intangible disease such as fear, anxiety, hatred, anger, bitterness, doubt, resentment, envy, unhealthy relationships, depression, unbeliefs, gossiping, complaining, and negativism.

Let us take a brief dive into some principles of healthy living according to God’s design.


Principle #1: Believe What God Says About Healthy Living

The first principle is to accept without questioning the Word of God. Believe the Bible as God talking to you face to face. In other words, it is your faith that will make all the difference in what you experience in your life.

Hear what the scripture says “Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper” (2 Chronicles 20:20). Prosper comes from the Hebrew word ‘shalowm’, meaning safe, well, health, prosperity.

Everything boils down to our quality of belief, it must be pure from all unbeliefs, doubts, questions, or fear. Jesus told His disciples that it was because of their unbelief that prevent them from seeing desired results, (Matthew 17: 20).




Principle #2: Watch Out for Hidden Time Bombs

Hidden timebombs mean danger is ahead that can suddenly explode. The good news though, there are usually some warning signs both in the physical and spiritual realms.

Physical timebombs in your life could be early warning stages of your body heading toward chronic illness or disease: showing signs such as fatigue, brain fog, energy spikes followed by crashes, acid reflux, hormonal imbalance, constant need for antibiotics, or even premature aging.

Spiritual timebombs could be, you are indifferent about the church and the things of God. You have a gift of complaining and criticizing almost everything. You are on a missionary journey of fault finding, and rejoice when you see or hear about a wounded soldier on the battle field. Your Christian walk is compromised with questionable and double standard living.

 

Principle #3: Manage the Quality and Quantity of Your Food Intake

Proverbs 23: 1-2 says “When you sit down to eat with a ruler, Consider carefully what is before you;  And put a knife to your throat If you are a man given to appetite.

Even though it may be lawful for you to eat whatsoever is set before you; because every creature of God being good, if it is received with thanksgiving, and sanctified by the Word of God and prayer.

Notwithstanding, it is a piece of wisdom to make use of that which is most beneficial to the quality of your health, and offering less risk. You should remember to observe moderation in all, and not indulge to gluttony and drunkenness.

Whether you are sitting at the King’s table or sitting at your own dining table at home, same principle should apply. Be consciously careful to select your food wisely.

There is a saying that says,  “We become what we eat, or we are what we eat”. There are physical foods and spiritual foods, and we have to select our daily portion to maintain good health.

 

Principle #4: Exercise Regularly

1 Timothy 4: 7-8 says, “But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.  For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come”. The Apostle Paul is saying here that exercise is essential, more so spiritually, to healthy living.

There is a quote that says – “Those who do not find time for exercise will have to make time for illness.” Edward Stanley. Both exercises should be conducted daily, in order to get maximum benefits. The real substance is in the regularity and consistency of bodily and spiritual exercise.

 

Principle #5: Seek Proper Rest and Sleep

Our body was designed to rest and sleep. In so doing, the cells of the body get rest and repair themselves, to rejuvenate and recharge. Lack of rest and proper sleep lead to mental breakdown, sickness and premature aging. Most adults need 7 or more hours of good-quality night sleep on a regular basis.

Getting quality sleep is not only about total hours of sleep. It’s also important to get good-quality sleep so when the Spirit of God wake you up, and you feel well rested.

The Word of God tells us about the importance of enjoying good quality sleep: “When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet”. (Proverbs 3:24). “At this, I woke up and looked around. My sleep had been very sweet“.(Jeremiah 31:26)

“I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the Lord sustained me”.(Psalm 3:5). “It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep”. (Psalm 127:2).

 

Principle #6: God’s Design For Healthy Living

God’s design for good health is based on Faith, Obedience and Consistency. Faith and belief are one and the same to an extent. It is our belief that enhances our faith;

and as our faith grows, unbelief will diminish. Romans 10:17 says “Faith cometh by hearing and by hearing the Word of God“. So as we read, study and meditate the Scripture our health with improve.

Faith and obedience work hand in gloves. We have to believe the Word followed with obedience. Listen to the Word Of God, “……. If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee”. (Exodus 15:26).

Reverence for the Lord brings good health – “Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones”. (Proverbs 3: 7-8).

 

Principle #7: Thoughts Are Things – Examine Them Closely

When I say Thoughts Are Things, I am not about to gone down the “New Thought Movement” path. I am remaining in the undiluted Word of God that says, “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect”.

Thoughts created and issued from our mind, but those thoughts are not created in vacuum, it’s a result of what we feed our minds on. Isaiah 26:3 says, “You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you”.

We must therefore concentrate and think on the right things, according to Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things”.

Thoughts are things is not a cliché, it is reality. Our thought fashion and determine our life. There is an anonymous quote that says, “Watch your thoughts, they become your words; watch your words, they become your actions; watch your actions, they become your habits; watch your habits, they become your character; watch your character, it becomes your destiny”.

 

Conclusion

God health ultimately comes from God, through our faith, obedience and persistency. The Lord will keep us from all pestilence including Covid-19. No evil will come near your dwell, because He will command His angels in regard to you, to protect and defend and guard you in all your ways through our obedience and service. (Based on Psalm 91).

“The Lord will take away from you all sickness; and He will not subject you to any of the harmful diseases of Egypt which you have known, but He will impose them on all [those] who hate you”. (Deutoronomy 7:15).

We were all designed by the Creator to experience and enjoy good vibrant health all our life. Sickness comes because of the fall and continues by rebellion against God.

Yeshua came to bring salvation, which includes our health; by His stripes we are healed. God made us to be healthy and remain so. Remember this, we are healthy by design and sick by default.

The SiteGround TEAM

There is a wide range of hosting services online, I use SiteGround services because they are the leading game-changer in the hosting space — from easily accessible software solutions to arguably the number one customer support system I have ever experienced.




My Review SiteGround: I have been using SiteGround for the past 2 years, (at the time of writing this review), as a happy and satisfied customer. I am overly confident that if I get stuck with a challenge, live chat tech support is there 24/7 to get me up and running.

They have honestly never failed to solve my concerns. They are always willing, polite and incredibly helpful support staff I find delightful to deal with.

SiteGround is officially recommended by WordPress.org, Joomla and Drupal. They have grown to accumulate 800,000 plus domain names worldwide, with data centers across United States, Europe and even Asia in the short 13 years since they started out with only one employee back in 2004.

That is putting them among the youngest in the web hosting business today. That is certainly an impressive growth rate, therefore they must be doing something right to achieve such ascent faster than many of their older rivals. And speaking of speed, SiteGround has a reputation for how fast websites can load.

Custom-Built Customer Service: Chat and Ticketing Systems

Why is SiteGround so *hostfully* strong? Let me tell you, their customer service has been their claim to fame, without the shadow of a doubt.

I’m telling you, customers come to SiteGround for the support, only to be pleasantly surprised by the level of custom solutions built in to make the hosting experience a stress-free relationship.

SiteGround has created an in-house chat-room software. This allows you to select and give your own rating with thoroughly vetted customer service agents with whom you’ve worked previously. They have designed their own ticketing system too, which enable technical support representatives quickly and easily help customers in specific tasks.

In-House Solutions: Shared, WordPress, Cloud, & Dedicated

CloudSiteGround

Their entire business is now tied to their in-house software solutions for customer support.

All of their infrastructure, and their code beds are done internally. SiteGround has a well known reputation for up-time rates of 99.996% annually and 99.999% monthly. All SiteGround hosting service users benefit from their unique downtime prevention system, I cannot remember when my site has ever been down.

SiteGround has a one-of-a-kind server isolation system for their shared hosting service.

That system prevents vulnerable servers from taking down a whole network. They have replaced their Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting by building their own cloud container platform, featuring thousands of containers and top-of-the-line scalability and security. And security on the web is synonymous with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Certificates.

Every Site Should Have an SSL

Review SiteGround Solid Security

The World Wide Web is obviously moving into the direction of making HTTPS the preferred, if not the compulsory, protocol. And these are just few of the reasons why this trend will continue to be massive in 2017 and onward: Google has officially announced that HTTPS will be a factor for search results standings.

SiteGround has made the transitions to HTTPS for their users easier than ever.

 

FAST WORDPRESS LAUNCH

Click-and-Install WordPress

SiteGround saves you the trouble of downloading, installing, and configuring WordPress manually by offering a simple click-and-install option. Their system takes care of everything right at the beginning so you can start customizing your WordPress site faster.

Launch a Beautiful and Functional Site

Once you install WordPress through their automated installer and you log into your site’s admin panel, you will be able to use their unique WordPress Starter. This tool allows you to choose from a selected collection of professional site designs and add key functionalities like contact forms, an online store, a portfolio, and more.

All the features you select are automatically installed on your site, turning the standard default WordPress installation into a beautiful and fully-functional website in minutes – no technical knowledge required!

What Are The Cons of Review SiteGround

When you compare SiteGround with other hosting providers is like comparing apples with oranges because plans generally come with various levels and features.

Having said that, there are certain functions and capacities you should look out for when comparing hosting providers: One is – Domains (how many websites you can run on your account), Secondly, Databases (how many software installs you can run), and thirdly Disk Space (how many files you can upload to your account).

One thing is for sure, with SiteGround, you are of course paying for top-notch quality. So if we are to focused on their raw price point for example, and not on overall value, we could say that they are a bit expensive than other high performing independent hosting companies.

Limitations of Their Plan
I have found their plan limitations to be some what of a disadvantage in and of themselves. Instead of limiting databases or domains, they limit disk space across all their shared plans.

Shared hosting servers sometimes experienced difficulties handling too many visitors coming to your site at the same time.

Say for example you get mentioned on Good Morning America. Therefore, it is the norm to go after the number of websites that are bringing in visitors, instead of the number of files uploaded on to the server.

I am confident SiteGround has persuasive arguments for putting a cap on what they control – and it could possibly make their service more reliable.

After all, to be fair, their setup can more than handle over 100k visitors if your website should get mentioned on a popular website as a one time activity, and they will not suspend your account.

Even if you should have something going viral and generate a lot of traffic.

And technically speaking, no host can really offer unlimited plans – there is usually some form of abuse caps detailed in the terms of service.

The Orientation of Developer
Target market, that is, starting with small business is usually the initial starting point for most web hosting companies, and then work themselves towards complementary markets of medium to large businesses.

Review SiteGround-CPanel

SiteGround however, possibly because of their solidly unmatched support system, they seems to position themselves towards the professional developer market, that is, developers creating websites for businesses.

That may not be a bad thing of itself – it can be a good feature if you are a developer – but to the general audience it is more difficult to appeal to them. The majority of SiteGround’s overall feel is simply straightforward, many of their features do not have much appeal or use for a general audience, especially when compared to many of their competitors.

I notice their top tier plan offers a WordPress staging area and GIT integration. While these are outstanding features, the average person creating a website do not use them.

SiteGround also does not offer the range of marketing bonuses that other hosting plans have. I use to think such bonuses were common features across the board, but at SiteGround it’s not.

Comparing SiteGround with Other Host Providers

SiteGround vs. GoDaddy

These are two trusted brands in the web hosting industry. Undeniably GoDaddy is by far the biggest brand and has better overall and short term pricing. However, SiteGround’s support and technology are much better than GoDaddy, even though GoDaddy has made improvement in this area since 2013.

Unless you have reasons to go with GoDaddy, you’ll get a much better product from SiteGround. They both present a wide range of options to get your site online. SiteGround is a genius at customer support, with their custom-made ticketing and chat systems.

GoDaddy has the resources and technology because they support more than 13 million customers.

Despite that fact, the world’s number one domain registrar gives customers a free domain for only a year, while SiteGround gives you a free domain name for a lifetime.

SiteGround vs. InMotion

Review SiteGround
Siteground Review 2021

High performance, solid security, top notch speed, ascent scale — some of the buzzwords to describe either of these hosting providers. Both known in the hosting community for superior support, SiteGround and InMotion are industry leaders when it comes to helping growing businesses scale upward.

Review SiteGround

They both have superb features, experienced support team and high performance. They offer competitive packages with powerful hardware, round-the-clock monitoring, and premier service.

However, InMotion’s has a better pricing overall, especially once you factor in upgrade fees. But remember, we might be comparing apples with oranges. InMotion also has a 90 day guarantee, on boarding is better, and smooth WordPress installs.

But think about this, not to be outdone, SiteGround has features like automatic staging, free SSLs and global data centers.

SiteGround vs. Bluehost

These are two fierce competitors in the WordPress hosting arena, both SiteGround and Bluehost offer services for shared hosting, virtual Private Server (VPS), and dedicated server customers. Bluehost is a well-known brands on the market.

They are ahead of SiteGround on price, and they have better “bonuses” and side upgrade. However, SiteGround is light-years ahead with performance and core hosting features, If performance matters more to you – then pay a bit extra for SiteGround.

SiteGround WordPress plugin SG Optimizer is a tool that enhances the performance level. The PHP 7 brings considerable performance boost that make it easier for all the WordPress customers to change their PHP version to PHP 7. They have updated their WordPress plugin SG Optimizer for you to move to PHP 7 with a click!

SiteGround vs. HostGator

These two are best known for offering good web hosting with great features for very affordable prices.

Although they both seem to have offer it all, you can identify areas they have specialized in different hosting niches.

SiteGround Affiliate Programme

HostGator is better known for shared hosting, and SiteGround’s well developed hardware and higher cost make them better suited for the more experienced site owners.

SiteGround Payment Plan

However, SiteGround has better support and performance. So again, choosing between them, I would go with SiteGround for great value & better performance.

Summary

There must be a reason SiteGround Hosting is one of the fastest growing independent hosting companies.

They have a solid product and a great support system. SiteGround is among the highest rated and most popular hosting provider on the web in general and in WordPress community in particular.

Review SiteGround

They provide a one-of-a-kind in-house WordPress speed and security solutions.

These solutions enable your site(s) to function as fast and secure as possible. They have an outstanding 24/7 support system hands down, and they are widely known in the industry for this. And that is what makes them an official ‘WordPress’ recommended hosting provider.

Their headquarter is in Bulgaria which allows them to be much more globally oriented than many US companies. While at the same time offering a truly world-class product.

Some of SiteGround cool features include automatic upgrades, built-in WP caching, great Content Delivery System (CDN), one-click staging and GIT version control.

They are also one of the few companies providing location specific hosting with 3 data centers in Europe, USA, and Asia. On top of all this, they have a special 60% discount for WP Beginner customers.

SiteGround pays commissions on a weekly basis. You can specify how you wish to get paid and a minimum payout amount.

The Great Deception Coming Against All Nations

 Berserkers And The Coming Eschatological Judgment Of God

Are you familiar with the term Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP)? It’s the new name for Unidentified Flying Object (UFO). SkyWatch TV recently published the fantastical observation of UFO Berserkers. Originally, Berserkers were legendary Norse warriors who fought with a notorious, trance-like fury, a distinction that subsequently inspired the English word “berserk.”

While employed with creative license, the Berserker name was recently enlisted by writer Fred Saberhagen for a series of science-fiction short stories and novels. In his apocalyptic tales, the Berserkers are self-replicating flying machines sent to destroy all life on Earth.

We think it not by chance that these biomechanical entities find functional parallels with the demonic locust hordes predicted in biblical prophecy (Joel 2 c.f. Revelation 9). We are not the first to suggest a connection between these insectoid instruments of divine judgment and the UFO phenomenon.

In a posthumously released textbook, The Kingdom of the Occult, by Dr. Walter Martin, a portion of his 1970s UFO presentation is transcribed. Although not widely known, he not only took the UFO phenomenon seriously, but he was also an eyewitness to a flying saucer.

 In fact, he blew up a photograph of the craft he witnessed as a display supporting his lecture. Like ourselves, Martin was inclined toward the extradimensional hypothesis rather than space aliens.

He likewise ventured that UFOs might be instrumental in Jesus’ description of the events prior to His return: “Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken” (Luke 21:26, underline added). “Things which are coming on the earth” implies that they themselves are not of the Earth; rather, they are, by definition, extraterrestrial………..Continue reading
