For our physical bodies to be healthy there is a certain kind of diet that we have to have. We have to eat fruits and vegetables and whole, raw foods to maintain good health. We can't eat lots of sugar, fats and processed foods and expect our bodies to stay healthy. Some foods benefit our bodies and help make them strong and healthy, while others poison and destroy it.
To be spiritually healthy we also have to maintain a proper diet. We can feed our spirit good nutrition and make it strong and healthy or we can feed it a diet of "junk food" that makes it unhealthy.
There is only one type of diet that has nutritional valve for your spirit man and will make it healthy-- the Word of God. If you feast on it, you will maintain good spiritual health. But if you feed it "junk food"-- false teaching, negative words, gossip, worldly philosophies, humanistic wisdom, compromise, or anything that is contrary to God's Word-- it will take its toll on your spirit man and breed spiritual disease in you.
We are either going to have healthy spirits that are thriving, growing and getting stronger in faith, or we will have unhealthy spirits full of doubt, fear and unbelief that produces confusion, depression and fear. Which type we have is determined by what we feed it. So, what kind of diet are you feeding your spiritual man?
Have a great day. What kind of diet are you on?
