This question, if asked around my house would be a resounding “Yes” all day long!
It seems that our bodies are actually craving some kind of food all day long and sometimes at nite too. It is ironic that our bodies have our attention in this way, we have to feed it three or more times in a day to keep it happy and not growling at us for something new to come into our stomachs. It is only a daily thing.
We could almost say that food is in control of us. We are subconsciously being controlled by food. Without even thinking about it we have to have it, whether it be good food or bad food, now that is another topic all together. But the idea of food controlling our lives is there.
To a basic poor person compared to the average person living his or her normal life, we think about this food thing very rarely in that it is our lifeblood to life. We just go to the refrigerator and pull something out to eat, anytime of the day or nite. But to that poor person it is a matter of life and death. It is that simple.
And in a spiritual way it is.
God’s suttleness is so amazing to me in knowing Him. He talks to us in such ways that we have to look into His face and to listen to what his every word is that we would be spellbound by his wisdom in Himself.
I have found such aweness of God that I find myself wanting to eat and drink of Him all day long. His words coming from the written word and from Him have made me want to snack on him besides to have those three Big meals in the day.
This leads me to to the revelation that we must go away from this idea of one time a week to be lead by God to fill us for the whole week! No one in their right mind would try a eating routine like this and live! Why should we think that this would work in our life with God?
Let me tell you a great diet that really works.Every day that you wake up, eat a meal in the morning,afternoon, and evening to sustain you thru the day, and if you are really hungry try some snacks in between these meals. It will quench your thirst and hunger!
Now, if we apply this thought to our spiritual life, we will have recipe for a spiritual life with God that we shall not ever hungry or thirst no more!? Now, where have we heard this before? Oh,yeah. It is in the bible when Jesus with the woman at the well.Jesus answered the woman’s question of how He could get some water if He did not have something to draw it from. But Jesus said to her ” Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again,but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
This “water” is a reference not to a physical water but a life of Him, which is what water brings to us in its physical sense. I am so in awe of the subtlety of God, it just make me sit there and Go “WoW, God you are amazing!
Our reality it seems is that we are like this samaritan woman in that she(the world) is still relying on the physical aspect of water to sustain us instead of God.
We have also realize that this is a daily occurrence of our being to walk with God. Our belief that our going for food on a certain day will not cut it any more. We have to come to God, who is at the Head of the Table, who is the food of Life for Us.
So, Come to the feast, every second,every minute, every hour,every day for the rest our lives to dine of God and with God. and they all said, “Amen, and Hallelujah”
P.S. as a testimony to this eating of God, I am eating more and more of him every day, I sense that I will not be quenched until I have looked into His eyes and know who He is. God is leading me on a daily basis to eat of Him, and I am now beginning to metabolize in a different way than I used to. I can now truly say “God is my Life”.
After all, “you are what you eat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
