Yeah, if you are like me, I am a creature of habit. I love for things to not be messed with, and for those things to enjoy the familiarity of their surroundings: ok, for me to enjoy the familiarity of my surroundings. You always hear the marketing schemes of companies to be sure to remind all who are trying to lose weight that it may come off, but then it’s coming back on because the competitor’s way of how you lose the weight is wrong. Well, the first thing that I want to say about that is this, if it indeed did comes off, I believe it can be called mission accomplish because the plan was for it to come off. Now simply put, and this does not require a degree in weight loss to surmise, but once you finish the weight loss plan from whatever source your plan came from, guess what happens? Yeah that’s right, the weight may definitely come back on because you have come back to your old eating habits where you picked up most of the weight in the first place. There maybe a plan going forth from some companies that is more resourceful in helping you maintain, and not gain it back; but without a doubt, and without having tons of marketing research money being laid out to know the particulars, when you finish the plan that you are on, don’t go back to your old eating habits: because if you go back to doing what you have always done, you are going to always return to getting what you have always gotten, regardless of the plan. The thing that you really want to attack after having a successful weight loss experience is your mind set, and not your food set: if you will attack the mind set in which you go forward with, then the food set will be attacked by your mind set. The Father, he doesn’t play around with our undependable mindsets, but he goes straight for what he knows works best on us humans: if we aren’t allowed to do the old habit, then you may be assured that they will try to start a new habit.
So why does the Father change our eating habits? If you didn’t get it from the example using natural weight loss, and the change of your natural eating habits in the above scenario, let me say it like this. If you have a favorite move that never works, in order to get you to use a new move that will work for you, I’ll need you not to use your favorite move of your own free will in order for a new move to work for you. And in order to get you to use a new move of your own free will, I will need you to find yourself in need of a move, while at the same time being unable to call upon your favorite old move. You see, some people believe that they already know everything, and therefore will not entertain the new thing when it comes along. So the Father will have to stand by painfully, and allow you to stick with the old eating habit of the favorite move, until you see for yourself that a change needs to come. There has always been a new eating habit for you to begin a new favorite move from, but until something changes your mind set, you were not going to change your old eating habit of your own free will. The Father loves us so much that he will set us up for a change of mind set so that we can change our old eating habits, and become that new you that’s been covered up by the old eating habits. Some of the members of the Body of Christ have been eating from the milk of the Word for so long, that when ever the Father sends the meat of the Word to multiply their stock a hundred fold, they choke all up because they didn’t remember to chew on it first before they took it in. And that’s another thing, once you have old eating habits matching up with bad execution habits, we may not ever see the new you emerge. We sometimes think that the Father is taking his good old time getting to us, but really, he’s moving as fast as we are willing to move.
How has the Father changed your eating of the Word habit in the recent past? What natural situation has come into your life, and just changed the way you do what you do? It can be something simple that changed the way of your old habit: It was my habit, and my way to get my running in early in the morning before the day begin, but due to some changes to my life in recent years, to my dislike, I have to get most of my running done in the evening around 9pm. The changes to my life alone that came changed my running habits, but those changes did not change the fact that I was going to get my run in regardless of the changes that came. If you want to find out what’s important to you, see what happens to what you do when some unwanted changes come into your life to effect ever thing. When the Father really wants to find out just how important a thing is to you, or how important “his thing” is to you, he just bring change to your eating habits of that thing, and then he will find out if his thing is still good to you. lol. There I go again! So when new faith substance things come into your life, at least check them out to know if it’s something that the Father is sending your way. If the Father is sending some new meat your way to eat, and you decide to stick to the old eating habit, get ready for the Father to change your old eating habit by putting you in a position to where the old eating move does you no good. And by the way, to identify a new faith substance thing or resource that the Father is sending your way, just look to see if the thing sent matches the Word that the Father sent forth to you at the beginning of the thing hoped for. If it matches, you check it out to see, you can always close an open door before you get all the way in it. Here’s a very simple example of identifying faith substance: Say that the Word that you are standing on is “I will supply your needs with a new job”, and you are contacted by an unfamiliar company with a job offer for a job that you have not ever done before. Now, there will be many that says I’m not qualified to do that job, but it’s not what you are qualified to do that’s important when you’re dealing with the Father. The fact that it is a faith substance matching the Word that you are standing on; and what do you really want the almighty Father to do? Send you a job that you know well, but doesn’t pay well; that is not how we roll in the kingdom. If you lean not to your own understanding, you may just lean way above everyone else’s own understanding to a land of milk and money, ah, I mean honey. There I go again!
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Well.
