If you’re one of those people who struggle with eating too much food, focus your desires on filling up with inspiration instead. Reach for spiritual truth with your thought before your reach for another dish in the refrigerator.
As Jesus taught, “You’re blessed when you’ve worked up a good appetite for God. He’s food and drink in the best meal you’ll ever eat” The Message, Matt. 5:6.
It’s not more food that makes you a happy person. To be honest, overeating often causes people to feel the opposite of happy. Any promise of fulfillment or ease from overindulging is pure illusion. And it’s not cool to live a life of constantly being deluded. It’s healthier to wake up to reality and enjoy the enduring freedom and joy that come from exercising dominion over appetite and finding happiness in spiritual understanding.
So, don’t fear overeating any longer. It’s not necessary. It’s not an act that you are required to do. There is nothing attractive about it. You can fill up on truth and love coming from God. It’s a metaphysical consumption of spiritual good flowing into consciousness in the form of inspiration from on High.
Sit down at God’s table for your next meal, and reach for the bread of Truth before sticking anything into your mouth. Seek spiritual contentment before more food.
“May you be filled with joy” Col. 1:11, NLT.
