“Remember who you are”
These were the words that stuck with me from the Made to Crave session from Lysa TerKeurst that I was watching today. I think I forgot for a few days who I am. I am God’s child, I am God’s temple, I am God’s co-worker, I am God’s workmanship, I am complete in Christ. I forgot who I was for a few days and allowed myself to indulge my flesh with food and more food. I felt miserable but instead of reaching for the food that Jesus talked about to the Samaritan woman in John chapter 4 I indulged my flesh. John 4:32 says “But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.” and John 4:34 “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.”
I am so amazed at my Lord and Savior because right after I was remembering these verses I turned back on the Made to Crave session and guess what she started talking about? You got it she started talking about the story of the Samaritan woman. I was floored. I was just amazed and then she took it a step further and gave us this verse: “Romans 14:20 Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food.”
God is so good!
