The Spirit of Powerful Eating!

When you eat your food, always remember to pray for your food with thanksgiving.  Why?  There is a reason why God asks us to do what we do and it's for our good.   If you are struggling with your weight, pray for your food and pray that your food will work for you and not against you; pray that the food you eat will bring you satisfaction, with confident faith (which is most important when you pray), and be willing not to eat it if you know that the food you eat will work the opposite way.   Pray for God to educate you on foods that just aren't working for you and never will.   Hold up the food and ask God, "Is this really going to help me out today?"   Pray for the strength to avoid them.   There was a time I loved pizza very much;  I love PB and J sandwiches.  I loved Reeses PB cups so much!   But I had to realize that it's just not worth it!  Those foods didn't ever do anything for my body but give me more work to keep it in shape.   So remember that God cares about everything you eat; make sure you pray for your food; and He especially cares about HOW you eat; in other words,  why are you eating the foods that you eat when you are eating them?   That can be put this way:  in what spirit are you consuming food?   This is really really important because it is the spirit of things that binds a condition:  look up what "conditioning" is about.  When you eat something, think about this:  Are you eating just because it's there, because you're bored, not motivated, as a replacement of, out of deficit mood as opposed to an abundant mood?  So when you pray with satisfaction and thanks giving, thank God and pray God bless the hands that made it and, think about it, that food will help you carry on that type of spirit and attitude!  Your food will work for you spiritually as well!  God's word says that everything God will use for our advantage as we love and trust Him; Here's what I am encouraging you to do:  make prayer and eating go together as a daily part of your life.  I believe not only will God bless your body, but as you eat you are setting yourself up to build ministry of healthy eating on that spirit of thanksgiving and satisfaction.  You will be a blessing for many others as well!  God bless you and bless others through your healthy eating and life.  

God bless your day today!  

If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible. Our God is so faithful. God bless you today.
