Hearing and Obeying the Voice of God Changed My Health!

I was eating large portions of unhealthy food. We are two or more times at restaurants which serve large portions of unhealthy food. Then, the Lord gave me a wake-up call about my diet and lack of exercise. The results are phenomenal!


“Samuel was lying down in the house of the Lord, where the ark of God was. Then the Lord called Samuel” (1 Samuel 3:3-4). 

God literally woke Samuel up in the middle of the night by speaking to him. God’s voice comes to us while we’re sleeping in darkness. Most of us spend a good portion of our lives asleep in God’s presence. The encounter will come, and it will startle us from our spiritual and physical lethargy. Hearing His voice calls us out of our current posture. His voice makes us come alive. 

God’s voice awakened me. Just as Jesus raised the dead with the sound of His voice, God lifted me out of the darkness of unhealthy eating and inactivity. I responded as Samuel did. “Speak Lord, for your Servant is listening.” 

His words began to flow. My heart and body came alive more than ever to the sound of His voice. God’s voice awakened me by telling me my body was in awful shape. He spoke to me about the junk I was eating and living as a couch potato. 

Joyce and I started eating healthy small food portions.  No more Diet Cokes. Just water and lots of it. No more snacking on Little Debbie Swiss Cake Roll – my weakness. Just bananas strawberries for snacks now!

The voice of God literally changed my unhealthy diet and eating habits!

I also heard The Lord say, “Get active!  

I couldn’t even walk a mile without stopping. My calf muscles ached. 

Today, I walk two miles each day and have started to jog a little. 


I bought a Fitbit and set as my goal 6000 steps each day. The Fitbit is a great tool. It reminds me every hour to get moving and gives trophies for reaching my goals which is highly motivating for me!  

God spoke to me and my wife about diet and exercise. We listened, and the results are phenomenal!

Here is last week’s Fitbit summary.

  1. The voice of Jesus is found here….. Hear this !

    The message of The 11 (“The narrow gate”)

    “The eleven disciples went to Galilee”
    “Where Jesus had told them to go”
    They heard His voice and obeyed His will
    Despite uncertainty down below

    Jesus spoke to them at length
    He wasn’t really a Tweeter
    Only 3 of them wrote Scripture
    Matthew John and Peter

    “Feed my sheep” said Jesus, for though
    “Heaven and earth will pass away”
    I have the words of eternal life and
    “My words will never pass away”

    “Enter through the narrow gate”
    The voice of Jesus through the eleven
    Believe in Jesus “through their message”
    And “eat from the tree of life” in heaven

    Jesus commissioned the eleven
    With “everything I have commanded you”
    “Teaching THEM to obey” Jesus
    And “THEM” means me and you !

    “The command given by our Lord and Savior”
    Is not a Pharisee speaking alone
    It came rather “through your apostles”
    Matthew Peter and John

    If a Pharisee boasts proudly
    Those men added nothing to my message
    He doesn’t speak for Jesus
    His words are nothing more than garbage

    All “quotes” in “quotation marks” are from the writings of the Apostles Matthew John and Peter in the Bible, mostly the “Red Letter” words of Jesus. [Matthew, John, Revelation, 2 Peter – NIV]
