I am eating lunch as I type this. I am finished with what I appointed my lunch to be, but I am still physically hungry.
As I push aside the desire to consume more food, I hear the gentle encouragement of a known nutritional fact. It takes the human brain 20 minutes after eating to recognize satiety level.
So my body aka my flesh is being a bully!
It has been fed..yet demands MORE natural food.
Our flesh does not submit to reason, unless you eat the Word of God and exercise the fruit of the Spirit.
Don't be bullied. We have been blessed with the ability to eat that which will do us good.
Eat that which is scripturally filling and exercise yourself in the things of God.
"Eat well " she said "But do not develop a taste for lovely words left unsaid."
~Debbie Turner Chavers
Psalm 34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that Ye cannot do the things that Ye would.
But if you be led of the Spirit,Ye are not under the law.
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery,fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred,variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Envyings, murders, drunkeness, reveling so, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness,faith,
Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
But they which are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
