Key To Strong Bones And Excellent Health

by Hazel Straub

The key to excellent health and strong bones might surprise you. Prosperity in the desert and in lean times does not come from saving your money or having the right stocks and bonds. Need Yahweh to quickly answer your prayers? What is the secret? Forgiving others’ debts, no gossip, inviting the homeless into your home, feeding the hungry and clothing those without adequate clothing. Do this and you will have abundant life, glowing health and lack no good thing.

Isaiah 58:6-12 (MSG)
“This is the kind of fast day I’m after:
to break the chains of injustice,
get rid of exploitation in the workplace,
free the oppressed,
cancel debts.
What I’m interested in seeing you do is:
sharing your food with the hungry,
inviting the homeless poor into your homes,
putting clothes on the shivering ill-clad,
being available to your own families.
Do this and the lights will turn on,
and your lives will turn around at once.
Your righteousness will pave your way.
The God of glory will secure your passage.
Then when you pray, God will answer.
You’ll call out for help and I’ll say, ‘Here I am.’

“If you get rid of unfair practices,
quit blaming victims,
quit gossiping about other people’s sins,
If you are generous with the hungry
and start giving yourselves to the down-and-out,
Your lives will begin to glow in the darkness,
your shadowed lives will be bathed in sunlight.
I will always show you where to go.
I’ll give you a full life in the emptiest of places—
firm muscles, strong bones.
You’ll be like a well-watered garden,
a gurgling spring that never runs dry.
You’ll use the old rubble of past lives to build anew,
rebuild the foundations from out of your past.
You’ll be known as those who can fix anything,
restore old ruins, rebuild and renovate,
make the community livable again.



  1. Just what I needed, a verse I will begin to claim and try to live up to with His help. Excellent wisdom! I must have sped past that verse.


    • God’s Word is full of wisdom. The Holy Spirit leads us into all truth and is our help and strength. God’s love transforms us. Then we love our neighbor as ourselves.


  2. the proper definition of fasting! thank you for sharing, absolutely true!
