Are You Talking To Your Body?

Are You Talking To Your Body

Are you talking to your body? Are you telling your body how to be, or are you letting your body tell you how it’s going to be? We don’t have a choice about whether or not we live by words, but we do have a choice about which words we live by. It’s time to take authority over our bodies as Christ intended. It’s time to consider these four ways To Speak the Language of Health and transform your future!

Mind Your Words

“[Call] those things which be not as though they were.” –Romans 4:17 (KJV)

Secular medical science has discovered that the part of the brain that controls human speech is connected to every nerve of the body. There was a newspaper article by a neurosurgeon entitled, “Talk To Your Body To Rid Ills.” In it, the doctor suggested that patients talk to their bodies and tell them what to do.

He suggested a diabetic should instruct his pancreas to secrete insulin and a person with hypertension should say several times a day, “My blood pressure is 120 over 80.” The doctor continued, “It makes no difference whether the patient even knows where his pancreas is or what 120 over 80 means. The body knows!”

Words were designed by God to release power. The language of health is the language of faith. By your words you are made sick and by your words you are made whole. So, what are you saying to your body?

Are you saying, “Well, I am getting older. I just can’t hear, see or remember like I used to”? Or what about things like, “I am a diabetic. I have high blood pressure, and I’m just not able to lose weight”? When you do this, you are talking to your body and telling it how to be whether you realize it or not. Those words are dangerous! That’s why Proverbs 13:3 says, “He who guards his lips guards his life, but he who speaks rashly will come to ruin” (NIV-84).

Talk to Your Body

Instead, be intentional about talking to your body. Speak directly to your ailment:

“My cholesterol is low.” “My bones and muscles are healed and strong.” “My heart is restored!” “I have no trouble losing weight.” “I have the mind of Christ. My mind is sharp, my memory is perfect, my eyesight and hearing are perfect, and my back is pain free!”

When you speak the language of health, your words steer the body on course to stay in step with the Word of God. If you aren’t already, get in the habit of talking to your body!

Guard Your Heart

“Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.” –Proverbs 4:23

Your words steer the course of your life, but your heart is the captain of your mouth. So, if you want to speak right words and not slip up, you need to guard your heart. That’s because, as Gloria Copeland says, “From the abundance of the heart, the mouth leaks.” We’ve got to watch what’s going into our hearts!

Many Christians believe they are immune and can handle secular influences without any negative impact on their hearts or spiritual condition, but the Bible tells us differently. In Psalm 101:3, David said, “I will refuse to look at anything vile and vulgar. I hate all who deal crookedly; I will have nothing to do with them.” David knew the importance of watching what went into his eyes and who he associated with. He took it very seriously!

We, too, must understand the power of words going into our eyes and into our ears—especially in the area of health and healing. The more we read and hear the Word of God, the more it gets down in our spirit and then comes out our mouth. The same is true of negative, secular media or bad company.

Flip the Switch With a Total Immersion

“Be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” –Romans 12:2 (NIV)

In World War II, the United States had a shortage of translators. We were in desperate need of people who were fluent in German and Japanese—and we needed them fast! So, the War Department created a six-week-long total immersion program. During those six weeks, participants were not permitted to speak English at all. They spoke and listened to only the language they were learning to speak. By the end of the program, they were fluent!

See the connection? If you want to be fluent in the language of health, you’ve got to do the same thing. Keep everything that isn’t faith out and immerse yourself in a faith-filled atmosphere until it changes the way you think and speak about your health. As Pastor George Pearsons says, “There’s a difference between being around the Word of Faith and it being in you.”

When you talk faith and health all week long, all 30 days long., you’ll find that total immersion will draw you very quickly out of your intellect and over into your spirit. When the 30 days are over, you’ll respond quickly and more powerfully than you ever have to any and every situation—no matter how severe—because you will be fluent in the language of health!

The best part? You’ll start to rub off on those around you, and they’ll start speaking the language of health, too!

These 3 Ways To Speak the Language of Health will transform your life! Your words program your spirit and body for success or failure. Great results come from declaring who we are in Christ, what we can do in Christ, and what we have in Christ. Speak the language of health and start seeing the results!
