Oh To Be Wise Meditations
The best way to lose weight is not by skipping meals or going hungry. Because when you are hungry you are more likely to give in and eat something that is bad for you. Instead you need to fill up on good healthy food until you no longer want the bad stuff. The best way to resist temptation is to be filled up with God. By you biting your tongue and fighting off sin, you end up in a circle of hypocrisy and shame. Get in relationship with Christ by praying to him, reading scripture, and sharing him with others. Start thinking and doing things that are pure and holy, it will grow a desire of righteousness in you. You will develop a taste for it and turn away from useless deeds that bring death. Seeing the change of heart God is supernaturally doing in you begins a stronger bond of faith in God. It is when we are spiritually weak that sin abounds much greater in you. You settle for the junk food to stop your earthly desires and you become overweight in sin. You need to be constantly filling yourself with Christ. He is a good and healthy portion that will keep you full when you feel sins desires in you. Oh Jesus we need to be wise in this: to move forward to maturity and not keep living unhealthy spiritual lives. If we allow ourselves to get sick because of sin we are losing all the benefits of knowing Christ as Lord. Jesus help me to spiritually healthy so I forget not all your benefits. Bless the Lord oh my soul, may I never forget the good things you do for me.
