“He will take our weak mortal bodies and change them into glorious bodies like his own, using the same power with which he will bring everything under his control.” –Philippians 3:21

Read: Philippians 3

Before your very first day of school, or prior to getting your driver’s license, and even before you began the family with which you spend your days…came your body. Not only did God inspire your soul’s dream, but He gave you the body necessary to pursue the job. Since God will always equip us with what we need to accomplish His will, we know our bodies were His choice. Can you imagine the moment?

It was as if God said:

“Sweet soul, here is your body. I’ve carefully woven it together. It has what it takes for you to pursue me and tell others about me. And oh precious body, this is your soul. Of all the matter in the universe, this is what matters most. Carry it where it needs to go. Protect it. Honor it. Now, I want you two to be good to each other. Be friends, not enemies.”

So, do me a favor and take a quick glance at your arm or hands. Think for a second that God himself has touched that skin. He was first. In fact, talk to your body. It’s okay, go ahead. Maybe you need to thank it? Assure it? Or like me recently, maybe during your dark hour, you need to apologize. Could be for something you’ve knowingly done or for something out of your control — an ailment, an accident maybe, or even a disease. But much like any friend going through a tough time, just tell it you’re so very sorry. After all, it was God who knitted it and then breathed life into it. Miraculously, He gave your heart a knowledge that there is something more to this life than life. And like it says in our verse, in order to pursue Him and then share Him, He gave you a weak and fragile body. Oh, it may not last this earth, but you can rest assured it was indeed a match made in Heaven. –Jimmy Peña

    Thank you so much for posting these thoughts.

    These sentiments have gotten me though the past 30-some years. I don't know where I'd be without Him.

    I'm adding you as a friend so I can get your posts daily to use as a devotional.
