Have you ever wondered why? Why God created all He created? Why He said it was good and then approved what He created? God created the heavens and the earth and all that is in the earth and then He said it was good. He approved all He did and then He created us, His children - making it clear all that He did, all that He created was for us. 

Just like we prepare for the arrival of our children, God prepared for His children. The difference being, God of course can do more than we could ever imagine.  His capabilities far exceed ours.  He is God and He is the one that changed the dark to light, created the waters, the seas, the heavens, the animals, and all the other majestic beauty that surrounds us. God said in James we are His first fruits, thus we are the most important of all He made.  He made all He did for us, and then He made us.  All of His creation was created exclusively for us, His children.   


Genesis 1:11 And God said, Let the earth put forth [tender] vegetation: plants yielding seed and fruit trees yielding fruit whose seed is in itself, each according to its kind, upon the earth. And it was so. 2 The earth brought forth vegetation: plants yielding seed according to their own kinds and trees bearing fruit in which was their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good (suitable, admirable) and He approved it.

Genesis 1:29 And God said, See, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the land and every tree with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for food.

God created food purposely for our health, wellness, and vitality!  God had intended we be well from the beginning.  

Only when we give attention to the health benefits of the foods God created in the garden will we see His love and compassion for us.  Not only did God create breathtaking beauty all around us, and amazing animals for us to love and take care of, He made a garden full of plants that will keep us well and even cure us of sickness and disease.

How wonderfully creative, honorable, thorough, and amazing God is to have the foods intended for us to eat be our very source for optimum health. Then knowing we would fall, those same foods would be our source of healing.  God knowing we would need urgent supernatural healing for our frailty also gave us Jesus.  God gave us His all.  He created wholesome foods for us to keep well and He gave us Jesus, His only Son so that we can be healed, so that we can be forgiven and so much more.  God has made provision for our every need and for every circumstance we encounter because He is in love with us.  

Even though God has made a way for us because of our sin, He wants us to come up higher and eat what He intended from the beginning.  God doesn’t want us to get sick or to die of cancer, but God desires that we prove His will is good and perfect by eating from His garden. 


Just like in the beginning when Adam and Eve disregarded God’s direction, we do the same today ultimately giving Satan control in our lives.  We give Satan control when we obey him (take on his suggestion), rather than God’s direction.  

God gave Adam and Eve direction for their good.  God knew that if they chose to disregard His command they would die. We have the same direction Adam and Eve had and we too, can choose to obey God or disregard His instruction.

Jesus tells us in John 10:10 that Satan is out to kill, steal, and destroy and that He, Jesus, has come to give us abundant life. We live that abundant life when we choose God, when we follow Him, and when we obey Him - thus making Him our God.  We also have a choice to let the enemy kill, steal, and destroy in our lives. The choice is ours, just like it was Adam and Eve’s choice to choose to obey God or the enemy.

God told us how to eat; He created the garden for our good.  His intentions from the beginning were for our good, now it us up to us to make the right choice.


The only way you can really see the good and perfect will God has for you (the completeness of His provision), is to research the health benefits of the foods He created for us.  I did my own research and want to share a few of my notes with you. 

Here are some of my researched notes:

Cabbage is a noted as a cruciferous vegetable and cruciferous vegetables are noted to kill cancer. 

All of God’s plants have phytonutrients in them; a component in the plants God created that prevents disease.  

Apples improve your memory; they will keep you from having a stroke, diabetes and dementia. Just to name a few things. 

A few facts on Pears, they will lower your body temperature. You can use them for a fever or just to cool off on a hot day.  They also cure acid reflux and provide quick energy.   

One avocado alone has 20 vitamins and minerals in it which makes me wonder why we would take vitamins instead of eating the source.  Avocados are also noted to cure leukemia.  

Oranges can keep you from getting kidney stones and they too, will keep your blood pressure low. They are a good source of vitamin C which protects our cells from diseases, like cancer and heart disease. Oranges are a good source of fiber, as all of God’s plants are, which will keep the colon clean.

All of God’s plants are beneficial to our health. Thus they will keep us healthy, vibrant, thin, and free from sickness and disease. We can be free of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, macular degeneration, high blood pressure, and all the other ailments that we have from eating things that are not created by God for us to eat.  

When we disregard God’s instruction, the protection God gave us in His instructions for eating, we will get sick. Our bodies were designed by God to eat what He created for us to eat and when we eat outside of His garden and take the suggestions of the enemy, we will surely die.

Therefore, it is not that God does not want to heal us; He has already made provision for us. All we have to do is, acknowledge Him and receive from Him by following His instructions for our good


God said, sin creeps at our door and we are to master it. We are to master Satan and resist the control he tries to take in our lives. Resist his temptations; get connected to the vine where we can plug into God’s power. Connect to the King, to health, wellness, happiness, and all the other good God intends for us. Then we will glorify the Father, showing to be a true follower of His (John 15:1-8).
