As Christians the joy of the Lord is our strength. The word is a lamp unto our feet and light unto our path.
“The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart: and a good report maketh the bones fat.”
Do you want to be happy and healthy? This scripture talks about two ways of achieving this and I want us to examine it.
First of all rejoicing or happiness is a product of light. “The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart”
What light is this? This is the light of the scriptures. It drives away darkness or depression from your soul. The Bible refers to God’s word as light. “lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them” 2 Corin. 4:6.
Secondly, good health or “fat bones” is a product of a good report. The word gospel means good news. Your inner being has an effect on your health. Sometimes when people have problems they begin to lose weight although they are not dieting. Their inner state casts a shadow on their health.
Jeremiah said “Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of my heart”
The word is a source of joy and health, feed on it daily.
