A tranquil mind gives health to the body, but envy rots the bones.
Complete Jewish Bible
I keep him in perfect shalom peace whose mind stays fixed on Me. By submitting your mind, will, and emotions to Me, I flood your entire being with health and wholeness. You are triune having a spirit, soul, and body. All three interact and interconnect with one another.
When you live and walk in My Spirit, your soul likewise submits control to My will and your body comes into agreement. All three flow in the unity they are created and designed to operate. However, when your unsubmitted soul rules, your entire being falls out of harmony with itself and with Me opening doors for the enemy to gain entrance into your life.
Your mind begins feeding toxic, negative thoughts which have adverse affects on your body. Muscles constrict and tighten giving way to hypertension, high blood pressure, and a whole array of other ailments. The longer you remain in this state of unrest, the more your body reacts negatively giving way to sickness, disease, and infirmity.
I am a God of order and I did not create you to walk in a place of disunity and chaos, but in peace and tranquility. When you feel yourself slipping into places of the soul, quickly jerk yourself back into the Spirit and command yourself to submit your ways to Me.
Your mind and body will quickly respond allowing My healing to flow freely through you infusing every cell with life. The doors to envy, jealousy, and every other evil work close to the enemy.
Spirits of envy and competition not only bring decay to your physical bones
, but also corrupt and damage My body
. My Word says you are all members of My body and you do not have the same function. So being many you are one in Me and individually members of one another. When you allow envy and jealousy to operate against your brothers and sisters, you open the door of destruction against My body weakening and depleting it.
I exhort you to walk out My Word in Ephesians 4:16, and grow up in all things into Me from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
When walking in the Spirit, you come to recognize you are one with each other and there is absolutely no need for jealousy. You share in one another's gifts and talents.
Embrace and protect your body and Mine by continually submitting your mind to My good pleasure.
The body will thank you!
