Meditation Thought: “…present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. (Romans 12:1)
As you can learn to bring health by proper nutrition, so you can learn to bring health by proper spiritual food: you are ‘wonderfully made’ – many interrelated and interacting parts, which need to be kept is good working order. Sin would rob you of the best health of body, mind and spirit. By the sacrifice of choosing what is healthy instead of choosing what is appealing at that moment, you bring the blessing of the peace of a healthy body, mind and spirit. The healthy foods are all listed in your nutritional handbook: Read it every day that your choice of all the foods may be healthy: the physical food, the spiritual food. Only by the power of obedience to God being released can you have the willpower to choose healthy foods over those which are deceitfully appealing as prepared by Satan.
Obedience is easier when the Word is saturating your mind and subconscious. ‘Brainwash’ yourself with the Word, for this kind of cleansing of old sinful thoughts will purify your mind and renew it with the thoughts of the Father being fed into it. His thoughts prompt actions which are within His will, and acting in His will is the presentation of a holy body to Him as sacrifice. You sacrifice your own will but in doing so, His will is given to you – and His will is infinitely more healthy, more desirable, more rewarding to you than your own will.
