“The light of the eyes rejoices the heart, And a good report makes the bones healthy.” Proverbs 15:30
A good report makes the bones healthy. What you hear does affect your health. In order to walk in divine health, you must be serious about what you are hearing. Not every report is a good report.
A good report is the report of God’s word. There is no report better than God’s report. There is no report that God’s report cannot change. No matter what reports doctors have given you, make a quality decision to consistently hear the report of God’s word. No matter what your medical history says or how bad the medical history of your family is, the report of God’s word will cause you to walk in divine health.
God has a good report for you. The blood of Jesus has given you a report of perfect health and wholeness. God’s report says in Matthew 8.17, ‘the Lord Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses’. God’s report says in Galatians 3.13, 14, ‘Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law and the blessing of Abraham has come upon us.’ God’s report says in I Peter 2.24, ‘..by the stripes of Jesus, we were healed.’ Can you see the awesome report of the Lord!
“My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings.”Proverbs 4:20 NKJV
Incline your ear and give attention to the report of God’s word. It is the good report. As you hear this awesome report, believe it. Take it as the truth of your life. Let God’s report be true and every other report a lie. Think deeply on what God says and let the Word develop an image of total dominion over sickness and disease. As you dwell and linger on God’s report and began to declare it by faith, these redemptive realities will become real to you.
‘…A good report makes the bones healthy.’ Proverbs 15.30
Some translations say, good news nourishes and refreshes the bones, it adds marrow to the bones and makes the bones fat. If you consistently hear and dwell on God’s good report, it will add marrow to your bones. This is very significant.
Bone marrow is a spongy substance found in the center of the bones. It manufactures bone marrow stem cells and other substances, which in turn produce blood cells. Red blood cells carry oxygen to tissues in the body. Platelets stop bleeding by helping blood clot. White blood cells fight infections.
Listening to negative reports – reports that are contrary to God’s report can dry up the bone marrow which means your bone marrow doesn’t make enough red and white blood cells, and platelets. Having fewer red blood cells causes haemoglobin to drop. Haemoglobin is the part of blood that carries oxygen through your body. Having fewer white blood cells makes you more likely to get an infection. And having fewer platelets makes the blood too thin. This means your blood can’t clot the way it should. Therefore your immune system becomes weak and you become more susceptible to sickness and disease.
God’s word is the best report for your health, wholeness and long life. Jesus said the word is truth. Listen to the true report. Refuse to listen to any other report. Every other report is subject to change and the Word will change it. Listen to God’s word daily! You will breathe freely. You will live a long and a healthy life.
You are victorious in Christ!
