We serve an awesome and powerful God!

Romans 1:20 states “For since the creation of the world, God’s invisible qualities – his eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made so that men are without excuse.” I never more clearly understood this verse until this past week when it was introduced to me that the foods we eat have innate design as to the healthy benefits they can provide. For me personally, this verse speaks to God’s ability to naturally provide for our body’s needs by creating food and plants BEFORE He even created the first man and woman. Let me use an example:

You have probably heard the statement that carrots contain Vitamin A which is good for the eyes. BUT have you ever looked closely at a sliced carrot? Probably not, at least I sure hadn’t.

A sliced carrot closely resembles the eye – complete with pupil, iris, and radiating lines. Science now shows that carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the EYES!

TOMATO – four chambers and red! Hmm – Any guesses? Tomatoes contain lycopene which stops bad cholesterol from binding in the plaque that narrows and hardens arteries thereby reducing the risk of increased blood pressure and heart disease.

Walnuts look like a mini-brain, even to the details of the wrinkles and folds. The high concentration of DHA within the nut helps develop three dozen (36) neuron transmitters to improve cognitive development.

Eating kidney beans helps detoxify your body of sulfates which is harmful to blood pressure. High blood pressure reduces the filtering efficiency of your kidneys to remove waste from your body.

.FIGS and Avocadoes both contain healthy fats and minerals which are extremely beneficial to the male and female reproductive organs. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and can help increase the male sperm count. Avocadoes help the female body balance hormones and reduce the risk of cervical cancer. OH and it takes 9 months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. Coincidence? I think God knew what He was doing.

The list can go on and on. Sweet Potatoes – Pancreas , Olives – Ovaries, Celery – Bones. So, if you’re looking for specific health benefits look no further than the natural food you put in your body. We serve an awesome God and He created our food to serve a function. Be the sleuth and look for clues the next time you shop.
