#Unfollow Challenge (Spiritually Fit)

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

Take Out The Trash

Has anyone ever left there trash in their house a couple extra days more than they probably should’ve? Maybe forgot to take it out before you went on a weeks vaction? You come back and your house stinks terrible. It’s not just in the kitchen, but you can smell it as soon as you walk in through the door! When we allow thoughts that doesn’t line up with biblical truth in our minds, it’s stinkiness soons reaches our heart and shows through our actions. We reap what we sow in our minds. Sow what the Spirit wants, not of your flesh. When you have a stinky thought, take it out to the trash where it belongs. Kick it to the curb! When we focus and meditate on what The Word of God says after we kick the lies to the curb, we will bear fruit. So.much.fruit! To know and identify the lies to kick them out, we also need to know the truth! I encourage you to really dig into your thought pattern and why you do the things you do. Find those roots or the chicken container you forgot about (so gross) and let Holy Spirit do a work in your heart!

Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.
Romans 12:2 TPT

For those who are living according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh [which gratify the body], but those who are living according to the Spirit, [set their minds on] the things of the Spirit [His will and purpose].
ROMANS 8:5 AMP

For the one who sows to his flesh [his sinful capacity, his worldliness, his disgraceful impulses] will reap from the flesh ruin and destruction, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.
GALATIANS 6:8 AMP
