I had a "challenge" present itself to me at lunch yesterday. I ate a healthy lunch and then just out of habit I was headed to the fridge to get that last fudge bar. I stopped suddenly and realized how quick I could have just done that and remembered my challenge to you yesterday. Outloud I said "NO" I'm not going to do that! Gave myself quite a chuckle. But I seen quickly how old habits and patterns can get us before we realize it.
Eve was saturated in her desire. Jesus was saturated in God's truth.
What a comparison! When we turn those desires into the "craving of God's
truth" we can have the same response as Jesus, "Get away from me, Satan"!
This is not only powerful in our response for food but what about other areas of our lives that we need to be concerned with?
I gave way to a lot of "cravings" last week. One day I found myself just stuffed with all the wrong foods. Yuck! The result left me drained and miserable. Not a good feeling.
I guess it really "set me up" for this week and knowing I just want to feel healthy, feel good and be energized, physically, mentally and spiritually.
I have found as I have purposed to be in the Word daily that I do crave that now.
