God Designed Us With Precision

Blog - God and herbs and drumba class

That’s me in the center of my Drumba Class beating with precision!

Because my birthday celebration is upon me, I have found myself giving over to silent, impromptu, heartfelt and sincere prayers of thanks to our gracious, loving and kind Lord of Host for ordaining me these expanded years of life. For the Bible says; “The days of our years are threescore years and ten…” Psalm 90:10

Yet, God has given me much more…

Not only was He generous in giving me extended years of life, but He has also designed my innermost being to remain healthy and sustaining for most of them…notwithstanding the stripes Jesus Christ suffered on the cross for my salvation.  Plus the strength to beat those large balls to death to lively music in my Drumba classes.

So, I can say with assurance; “I praise you, {Lord}, because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”  Psalm 139:14

God Placed Natural Healing Wisdom At Our Fingertips…

Do you realize that God did not just make us with precision, He also gave us access to bona fide natural medical remedies to cure what ails us.  As you know, for centuries, people have been using herbs for their culinary and medicinal benefits.  Listed below are 7 herbs that are still being widely used today for healing and restoration.  Some of their uses in biblical times and today are listed.

  Blog - God made us with precision aloe plant

Aloe

Nicodemus brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes.  About  seventy-five pounds (for burial).  John 19:39

Today’s use is for burns, rashes and to lower blood pressure.

Blog -God made us cumin

Cumin

(Jesus said in regards to tithing) Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites!  You give a tenth of your spices—mint, anise and cumin (for cooking).  Matthew 23:23

Today’s use is for your digestion system, breast feeding, and coughs.

Blog - God lemon balm

Lemon balm

As they sat down to eat their meal, they looked up and saw a caravan of Ishmaelites coming from Gilead.  Their camels were loaded with spices, balm and myrrh, and they were on their way to take them down to Egypt (for bartering).  Genesis 37:25

Today’s use is for making soothing salves and oils.

Blog - God Designed us precision bitter herbs

Bitter Herbs

That same night they are to eat the meat roasted over the fire, along with bitter herbs and bread made without yeast. (seasoning)  Exodus 12:8

Today’s use is for kidney stones, digestive system and the urinary tract.

Mustard Seed

 

He (Jesus) told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field (Medicine and teaching).  Luke 13:18, 19

Today’s use is for common colds, soar throats, muscle and back relaxing, and as a hair conditioner to treat damaged hair.

Myrrh

All your robes are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia; from palaces adorned with ivory the music of the strings makes you glad (for burial). Psalm 45:8

Today’s use is as a cleansing agent, and to help with ulcerated throats and mouth sores.

Blog - God olive tree

Olive Oil

Command the sons of Israel that they bring to you clear oil from beaten olives for the light, to make a lamp burn continually ( illumination).  Leviticus 24:2

Today’s use is for cosmetics, medicine, cooking, and soaps, and was also used as a fuel for traditional lamps.

 

I’ll be the first to admit that with drug stores and pharmacists so readily available, I do not avail myself to a lot of natural healing.  But I have tried olive oil and aloe for medicinal purposes.  Once, when I was a teenager, my grandmother had me to chew on a dandelion root to cure my cramps.  And another time she picked some wild mint from the front yard and had me chew it to alleviate a sour stomach.  Both experiences worked.  Boy oh boy, how I wished I had preserved all those ‘ole time’ remedies!

As I prepared for this blog, the Holy Spirit reminded me of this verse:   “In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.”  Revelation 22:2

I thought to myself, God is interested in every thing I do.  He walks with me and talks with me and tells me I am His own.  How wonderful and blessed I am to have such a friend in Jesus.  (And I pray that that is your desire, too.)  As for me, I will continue to serve Him until traveling days (and birthdays) are over.  Amen!

Scripture Lesson:   I will bless the Lord at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth.  My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.  O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together.  I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.”  Psalm 34:1-4

  1. Hello Sister Fowler! What a wonderful picture of you! Thank you so much for this informative post. I’ve become a little more likely to use natural remedies these days, considering all the side effects of modern medicine, and have found that many do work just as described. They aren’t as instantaneous as most modern medicines, but they get the job done in a much healthier way. God bless you, Sister!

  2. Last night my daughter, grand daughter and I ate at an authentic Mexican Restaurant and the senior waiter gave us a recipe for a home remedy tonic for cleansing and good health. He promised to make me a portion and I’ll pick it up on this Friday. Will let you know the ‘outcome’ (Haa, Haa, Haa). 😊
