We hear this often, right? What we put in our bodies will start to show. If we eat too much grease it will show in our cholesterol levels. If we eat too much sugar it will…well, you get the point. But let’s go even further. We are what our eyes behold. The eyes are the windows to our souls and what we look at is what our souls are digesting.
We’re all grown adults. No one tells us what to look at because we’re old enough to determine that for ourselves. And that’s true. But truthfully, what we watch continually will come out of us eventually. You get to decide what you want oozing out of you later. But in order to do that, you must be conscious of what you’re putting in.
See, we will really know what’s in us during trials and tests. We may can hide for a moment, but when the fire gets hot what’s really in our souls will come out. And what comes out is what we’ve been eating on for a while.
Our belief has an appetite, and it works in either realm. If we feed it the Word of God, we will have Godly responses to trials. But if we feed our belief things that have been endorsed by the culture of the world, we will react in that way.
Ever had an upset stomach? Ever ate something you shouldn’t have? What a terrible feeling! But after your body kicks it out you feel better! Some of us are frustrated because our souls have eaten so much that we’re confused. It’s time for a spiritual regurgitation.
Isn’t it foolish to eat the same things that made us sick? Isn’t it not wise to still stay connected to what’s toxic? Eating what’s expired has never been healthy…Selah.
