6 Keys to Living a Healthy, Happy Life
Are you living the life you want to live? Are your spirit, mind and body in perfect sync? Do you greet each morning with joy? If not, you may not be living the healthy, happy life God desires you to live. If you want to live with joy, freedom and well-being in every area of your life, then put these six keys to work. Live the life you were meant to live…the one Jesus died to give you!
Key #1 to Living a Healthy, Happy Life: Believe and Receive
Living a healthy, happy life begins when you get born again by receiving Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. Your life takes another leap forward when you receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit. If you haven’t already done those two things, do them now. And if you want to learn more about them or what Baptism in the Holy Spirit means, read the article, What Is Speaking In Tongues? You cannot live the successful life God designed for you without those two things.

Key #2 to Living a Healthy, Happy Life: Cling to the Lord’s Promise
In Psalm 91:16 God promises, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honour them. I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.” If you are a Christian, then this promise belongs to you, don’t let go of it. Write it down and post it where you can see it every day, several times a day. Hold tightly to this promise and trust God to fulfil it.
Key #3 to Living a Healthy, Happy Life: Get Busy for God
Commit to completing whatever God has given you to do here on earth so that when you get to heaven Jesus can say to you, “Well done, good and faithful servant.” If God has called you to prayer, then get to praying. If God has called you to give extravagantly, then get to giving. If God has called you to focus on your family so that the next generation is prepared to serve Him, then do that. If God has called you to plant a church, start planting. Whatever God has called you to do, get busy doing it.
Key #4 to Living a Healthy, Happy Life: Keep God’s Word
Proverbs 3:1-2 clearly explains the importance of this key. It says: “My son, forget not my law or teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments; for length of days and years of life [worth living] and tranquillity [inward and outward and continuing through old age till death], these shall they add to you” (The Amplified Bible). If you want to live a life of peace and tranquillity even when the whole world around you is falling apart, then you must follow God’s Word.
Key #5 to Living a Healthy, Happy Life: Receive Forgiveness
First John 1:9 says, “But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.” If you have made mistakes—and everyone has!—then ask God for forgiveness and receive that which is available to you by the blood of Jesus. Then change your ways. Doing so allows you to take what belongs to you in Christ…which is healing, health and well-being.
Key #6 to Living a Healthy, Happy Life: Forgive
Matthew 6:15 says, “But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.” This scripture makes it clear that you need to forgive those who have sinned against you. It’s the only way that you can get free from the pain and anger that can keep you bound to your past.
You can live the healthy, happy life you were born to live. God ordained it. Jesus paid for it. And by remembering these six keys, you can have it!
