I heard a song on the radio yesterday about being "New", It talks about how we become new creatures in Christ as we are saved and try to live for Him. So I woke up this morning thinking about the word "NEW" So what does the Bible say about NEW, I did a search on my Bible app on my Droid phone and this is the passage that stuck out to me today: I hope it is helpful to you:
Ezekiel 18:30-32 NLT
"Therefore, I will judge each of you, O people of Isreal, according to your actins, says the Sovereign LORD. Repent, and turn from your sins, Don't let them destroy you! Put all your rebellion behind you, and find yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die, O people of Israel? I don't want you to die says the Sovereigh LORD, Turn back and live!
Ok, If you don't know much about the Bible and the Israelites, they were God's chosen people and they always seemed to be complaining and sinning and being rebeliious, they knew what was right but they chose not to do it. For me, this applies to my eating habits. I know I shouldn't eat certain foods but I do it anyway and here I am trying to undo what I have done to myself. I can God saying to me: repent and turn from your bad eating habits, don't let them destroy you, put them behind you and they won't destroy you! Find for myself new ways of eating and dealing with my lack of energy and physical issues, God doesn't want me to live this way anymore, He wants me ot live!!! Wants me to experience victory over my feelings and conquer this once and for all, Make it a lifestyle, not a temporary fix! Overcome this habit for good!
I hope this will encourage and motivate you on your journey to better health. Always remember: If God is for us, who can be against us!!!! Romans 8:31
