Man vs. Food

This is not for people with health issues that call for specific diets, such as those with diabetes or milk intolerance, or the like.  This is for people who can eat any food, but struggle are challenged with what to eat.

The other morning I wrote about my food ‘challenges’.  I say challenges, because a few years back I was talking to someone about my ‘struggles’ with food, and this person said, “Why not look at it as a ‘challenge’ rather than a ‘struggle’?”

Kind of like the tv show Man vs. Food.

As I get older I notice I could get really crazy about the food I eat.  There are so many men, women and doctors with many differing opinions on what food to eat and what food to avoid.  For example:  Dr. Oz had someone on his own show contradicting what he recommends for a good diet.

I’m glad I’ve got God’s word.  Jesus is a sure and stable anchor in a world full of contradictions and lies.

In Genesis 1:30, pre-flood, God said,  “And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground–everything that has the breath of life in it–I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.

In Deuteronomy 12:15, post-flood, God said,  “Nevertheless, you may slaughter your animals in any of your towns and eat as much of the meat as you want, as if it were gazelle or deer, according to the blessing the LORD your God gives you.”

And the very freeing 1 Timothy 4:4, “For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving.”

Wait!  You mean it is as simple as if God made it, then I can thankfully eat it?  That would take great faith in this misdirected, misguided world!  God grant me that kind of faith.

Grant me faith, also, to believe Matthew 4:4  where Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'”

And John 6:35 where Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.”

Abba Father, Help me to trust in you and you alone to help me win my food challenges.  Supply my sustenance physically, and be my sustenance eternally.  In Jesus name, Amen

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
