Battle prayer notes 4/26/23


Good morning brother,

Day two topic: Gluttony

Definition: excessive indulgence (typically food or drink)

Counterpart: self-control, contentment, patience, discernment

Gluttony is an excessive and ongoing eating of food or drink.

1 Corinthians 10:31 says, “Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”

Additional Bible references include: Psalm 78:17-19, Philippians 3:19-20, Proverbs 23:1-3, Proverbs 23:19-21 and 1 Corinthians 3:16-17.

Temperance cures gluttony by implanting the desire to be healthy, therefore making one fit to serve others.


Finding contentment in Christ brings peace to our body and spirit.


Gluttony ties into money. Spend your hard earn money delacies and fantasies. Addicted to pain killers


Enjoy God more than earthly flesh.


What are you going to do when there is no food to eat? You need discipline.


Gorging is not good for your health.


We need Holy Spirit to help us with our weakness in glutton.


Companion of gluttons shames his father. How much more your Heavenly Father.


For the drunkard and the glutton will become poor, and grogginess will clothe them in rags.


Do not use your freedom for the gratification of the flesh.


The rich and the love of money enslaves you to wicked desires.


We must allow Jesus to be our soul food.


Lust and gluttony catches our eyes.


We feed ourselves to cover our pain and shame.


Whatever we feed ourselves with we will birth you.


[Jhn 6:35 NLT] 35 Jesus replied, "I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.


[Jhn 6:48-51 NLT] 48 Yes, I am the bread of life! 49 Your ancestors ate manna in the wilderness, but they all died. 50 Anyone who eats the bread from heaven, however, will never die. 51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live forever; and this bread, which I will offer so the world may live, is my flesh."


The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. Then she gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it, too. Gen 3:6


The only thing in excess that is good for us is the fruit of Holy Spirit.


You need to fill your spirit and body with good things.


Fasting can be an incredible avenue of health. Done with measure and proper nutrition.


[Mar 2:19-20 NLT] 19 Jesus replied, "Do wedding guests fast while celebrating with the groom? Of course not. They can't fast while the groom is with them. 20 But someday the groom will be taken away from them, and then they will fast.


Be a glutton for the presence of the LORD. He is our source. Holy Spirit be our spiritual  battery.


The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. ‭‭John‬ ‭1‬:‭14‬ ‭


Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me. ‭‭John‬ ‭12‬:‭26‬ ‭


Listen to my prayer, O God, do not ignore my plea; Psalms‬ ‭55‬:‭1‬



My mouth will tell of your righteous deeds, of your saving acts all day long— though I know not how to relate them all. I will come and proclaim your mighty acts, Sovereign Lord; I will proclaim your righteous deeds, yours alone. Since my youth, God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭71‬:‭15‬-‭17‬ ‭


The fruits of the Spirit are all tied together.

God be a provision to us. Help us not to lean on our own strength.


Where are we over gratifying ourselves.

We have Jesus the Manna of heaven. He satisfies the soul fully.


[Jhn 4:31-32, 34 NLT] 31 Meanwhile, the disciples were urging Jesus, "Rabbi, eat something." 32 But Jesus replied, "I have a kind of food you know nothing about." ... 34 Then Jesus explained: "My nourishment comes from doing the will of God, who sent me, and from finishing his work.


God has given us food, drink, and other pleasurable things to enjoy (Genesis 1:29; Ecclesiastes 9:7; 1 Timothy 4:4-5), but the Bible calls for moderation in everything. Unrestrained self-indulgence in any area will lead to deeper entanglement in sin because it represents a rejection of godly self-control and disobedience to the will of God.


Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to reckless indiscretion. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.


Luke 21:34-35

Watch out! Don’t let your hearts be dulled by carousing and drunkenness, and by the worries of this life. Don’t let that day catch you unaware,


Bethshazzar the cups of gold and silvers.


In the last days people will be loves of self. Like in the days of Noah.


For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark;

and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Matt 24:39


The implication here is that if we give ourselves to being satisfied with spiritual bread, wine, and milk, then physical hunger will lose its supreme power. A lot of gluttony is born of boredom. Life is not satisfying or stimulating, relationships feel empty, and work is boring, but the food is always there and tastes so good.

So we need to cultivate a range of appetites for great and good things, things like good literature, people's fellowship, reading the Bible, nature, work, etc. Discover these other appetites so that things other than food can satisfy you. Then pray earnestly and cultivate and nurture these satisfactions. 


The garden of Eden, so much goo food to chose from. What is it with the human soul that we want what we can’t have.


Even music done in excess is bad. You need quality over quantity.


Whatever you put in your body and mind make sure you chose quality over quality.


Vasco, it's our wretched hearts. In order to have free will we were made perfectly imperfect with choice. If we are not given worldly desires we wouldn't know choice.


We choose Christ and sacrifice worldly things


We grow to know that the gluttony the world brings is not sufficient for our spirits.


[Jhn 6:48-51 NLT] 48 Yes, I am the bread of life! 49 Your ancestors ate manna in the wilderness, but they all died. 50 Anyone who eats the bread from heaven, however, will never die. 51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live forever; and this bread, which I will offer so the world may live, is my flesh."

King Bethshazzar of Babylon the cups of gold and silvers. Drunkenness and carousing next day lost the Kingdom.
