Spiritual health check
When we feel weak and tired physically we go to the doctor to get a check up, have some blood test that will show if we are lacking in something. If we are deficient in any vitamin, the doctor will prescribe that we take a supplement and recommend a good healthy diet and some exercise. To keep our bodies healthy we need to eat and exercise every day.
It is no different with our spiritual health, if we are not reading the Word of God daily, praying and spending time in worship, we become spiritually weak, and that leaves us wide open for the enemy to attack us.
Galatians 5: 22-23 tells us what a healthy spirit produces. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
Question to self: Am I deficient in the fruits of the Spirit? If you find yourself lacking in love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness or self-control, then it is time to change your spiritual diet.
We cannot be spiritually healthy if we are not reading God's Word, praying and spending time in worship daily.
Just as food energises our physical bodies, God's Word will energise our Spirit.
