When you go look in the fridge for something to eat, most likely you are going to look for one of our favorite foods. If you are trying to bulk up you are going to choose something with protein. If you are trying to lose weight you are going to chose something that is going to help your metabolism. I am not a nutritionist by any means. But, I do know that if you want a certain result you do have to diligently chose what to feed yourself.
The same thing goes for you and I spiritually. If we are snacking on media all day that’s goal is to get views and strike panic, we are going to be left with anxiety. If we choose to have a big old helping of ‘let’s see who is winning now, the Democrats or the Republicans’ we can be left with hopelessness, division, and offense. What you feed yourself through the things you hear and read are just the same as a real diet. Is what you are feeding on line up with the ultimate truth of God’s Word or are you feeding yourself junk?
I made a challenge today on Instagram where you and I both choose to unfollow things like fear, doubt, and worry and replace what is fueling those thoughts with the truth of God’s Word. The truth is, there is many options for you to choose to snack on. But you want to pick things that are healthy for you, not what just seems to feel good now. Will you join the unfollow challenge with me today?
Scripture The Challenge Is Based Off Of:
•And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Romans 12:2 NKJV
•Since you have heard about Jesus and have learned the truth that comes from him, throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy.
Ephesians 4:21-24 NLT
•If you give these instructions to the believers, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, as you feed yourself spiritually on the words of faith and of the true teaching which you have followed.
1 Timothy 4:6 GNT
