Our Health…XXII

Father I pray, I will watch what I expose myself to for not everything is good nor is it good for me. The folk in Ephesus brought before you their various anti-biblical paraphernalia and burnt it, for they recognized it was not good for them. Help me understand dear Lord those things I do or those things I have exposed myself to that is not good for me, so I can destroy them. I understand my health could well be dependent upon it, as could the overall well-being of my family. Thank you Lord for your wisdom and discernment in these matters. 

Acts 19:11-20 (NKJV) Now God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, 12 so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them. 13 Then some of the itinerant Jewish exorcists took it upon themselves to call the name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits, saying, “We exorcise you by the Jesus whom Paul preaches.” 14 Also there were seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, who did so. 15 And the evil spirit answered and said, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?” 16 Then the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, overpowered them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. 17 This became known both to all Jews and Greeks dwelling in Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified. 18 And many who had believed came confessing and telling their deeds. 19 Also, many of those who had practiced magic brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. And they counted up the value of them, and it totaled fifty thousand pieces of silver. 20 So the word of the Lord grew mightily and prevailed.
