In today's world we have fast food, fast cars and fast paced lives. Little by little the wear and tare on the soul is due to the lack of exercise, the neglect of flexing those spiritual inclinations. Every time we are presented with a challenge or a test and we defer that strength that God offers us it weakens our ability to stand strong in the Lord. We need to get lean in the Lord by leaning on the Lord. It means reducing the junk content and not relying on self control but reaching out and asking God for assistance in that moment and giving him a chance to take effect.
If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith? 29And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. 30For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.31But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.
We are impulse driven this is no doubt, ask anyone that craves a drippy juicy burger or salty starchy fries. We think nothing of exposing ourselves to the worst quality food, people, and environments because the thinking is..."Oh I will address this eventually",...or "just this one time". It's a trap, it's the deferment of God's help, the power is in the moment and we give it up before we even reach for it.
1 Thessalonians 5:21 Test all things; hold fast that which is good.
Hebrews 2:18 For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.
Proverbs 24:16 For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.
Our Lord and Savior knows no defeat, no limitations and there is no shortage of opportunities. It could be for the first time or the fiftieth, God prefers the total surrender no matter how dire we feel the state of our lives may be; He is the Ultimate deliverer! Full and total restoration is no feat for him.
Psalm 103:2-3 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits. 3Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
But then there are others who are so bogged down, so spiritually lethargic; like a junk food induced coma, caught up in the feel good, sounds good, looks good way of life. No matter what condition, illness or terror we face we have a rock solid promise and a King who can deliver. If we could only approach the foot of the cross with such intense supplication and desire, giving into the Lord like we give into the flesh.... There would be such a transformation.
Psalm 34:17-19The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.18The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.19Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
Is there a certain person you've held in prayer for sometime? It doesn't matter if it is a disease or just a case of not wanting the healthy life God ordains for us. Don't stop trying to feed them, don't give up on them; fully believe in the Lord and his promises. Jesus is the bread of life and a taste of the King's banquet is beyond words. They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach well the way to a humans heart is through the feeding of the soul. God's word is food for our spiritual bodies. I know the effectual fervent prayer of many availeth much; so I ask any who diligently pray to please join me in a silent moment for that one in our lives...that one out of the 99 whom Jesus leaves us for in order to retrieve.
Ephesians 6:18-20Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;19And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
Luke 15:4-74What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? 5And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbors, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost. 7I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.
Father God creator of all things in Heaven and upon Earth. Lead us to your everlasting word, feed our eternal souls and strengthen our flesh that we may withstand the tests and the challenges we face daily. As nutritious food yields a healthy body let your wisdom rise up in us to full maturity. Father we ask you to deliver our loved ones out of carnal bondage, allow them to see the transformations in us that they too will seek the bounty of your Holy goodness. We ask that you restore our hunger and thirst for you and you alone. Let our satisfaction be settled in the ways you set before us and let us choose you over the poisons of this world. We ask this in obedience to Christ Jesus and we accept your will above our own. We thank you and we glorify your name. Amen!
Revelation 22:14Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
