If you’re struggling with a health issue, have you consented to health today?
Humans are always consenting to something.
If one hears a news report that flu is raging through their community and are tempted to think they might pick it up, they just consented to catching the flu.
If one looks at their body, sees a symptom of disease and believes it might get worse. They just consented to it getting worse.
There’s a wiser way to consent. Always consent to health!
As God’s creation, we are endowed with health that is never lost. It’s a fixed part of our being. Like our name, we never lose it. We can’t lose our health anymore than we could lose our identity with God. God and health are synonymous, and as children of God, we reflect a God in perfect health.
Mary Baker Eddy wrote,
“If you decide that climate or atmosphere is unhealthy, it will be so to you. Your decisions will master you, whichever direction they take. Reverse the case. Stand porter at the door of thought. Admitting only such conclusions as you wish realized in bodily results, you will control yourself harmoniously”
Science and Health, p. 392.
Watch what you consent to. Consent to health! And never to anything less.
