The fear of the Lord prolongeth days. Proverbs 10:27.
All who are under the training of God need the quiet hour for communion with their own hearts, with nature, and with God…. We must individually hear Him speaking to the heart. When every other voice is hushed, and in quietness we wait before Him, the silence of the soul makes more distinct the voice of God. He bids us, “Be still, and know that I am God.” … Amidst the hurrying throngs and the strain of life’s intense activities, he who is thus refreshed will be surrounded with an atmosphere of light and peace. He will receive a new endowment of both physical and mental strength.111Counsels on Health, 163.
Let the mind become intelligent and the will be placed on the Lord’s side, and there will be a wonderful improvement in the physical health.112The Medical Missionary, November and December 1892.
Sickness of the mind prevails everywhere. Nine tenths of the diseases from which men suffer have their foundation here…. The religion of Christ … is one of its most effectual remedies, for it is a potent soother of the nerves.113Testimonies for the Church 5:444.
Heaven is all health; and the more deeply heavenly influences are realized, the more sure will be the recovery….
We should cooperate with God in the care of our bodies. Love for God is essential for life and health. Faith in God is essential for health. In order to have perfect health, our hearts must be filled with love and hope and joy in the Lord.115The Review and Herald, April 9, 1901.
