Eating for the glory of God

Would you like to have more productive hours in your day? Would you like to have not just more days but more years to live? I am persuaded that God would like to give His people more productive and fruit bearing years on earth before He takes them to heaven but we cut our life short with disobedience.

So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. Psalm 90:12

Did you know that there are things that God allows but they are not His will? Take divorce for example; under the law Moses gave an allowance for divorce but Jesus said that from the beginning it was not so. God allows us to eat meat but from the beginning it was not so.

Daniel was taken when Babylon first came to Jerusalem and he served the kings of that nation until Saturday night October 12, 444 BC when he was called into a room where the king and his men were drinking themselves drunk. Daniel was asked to interpret the writing on the wall that the men saw part of a hand write. Lester Roloff said that when Daniel saw the writing he said: “glory to God a letter from home.” :-)

After interpreting and being rewarded he went to the gate to welcome the king of the Medo-Persian Empire that had conquered the city without any violence. Then Daniel served that nation and lived all the way through the 70 years captivity and longer.

I am suggesting that chapter one is a hint to all future believers of how to be healthy, live long, and have a clear mind to communicate with the Lord.

And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. Genesis 6:3

God’s Spirit strives with man for him to come to salvation and sanctification. In this verse God is telling us that He is cutting the number of years that he will give man to complete his testimony on earth. After this verse man’s life quickly gets shorter. As an observable rule today sickness and shorter lives follow meat eaters.

I watch believers ask the Lord to bless what they are about to eat then they shovel in all kinds of things that even secular nutritionists say is unhealthy.

Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. I Corinthians 10:31

Have you committed your body as a living sacrifice? Is that observable in how you eat?
