God Beach Diet.
August 23, 2011 Comments Off on God Beach Diet.
So I have recently gone on a diet, for many reasons- mainly because I love “good” food too much. Anyways, it hit me today that the way we approach diets is also a major flaw that we have when living our calling for God.
We like the results the diet can bring us, but we aren’t willing to put forth the appropriate effort to maximize our results. We like to think that we are going to trim down 20 pounds, while still eating our favorite dish every once in awhile.
We like the idea of a God sized calling, with God sized results and impact, but with our own favorite lifestyle preference.
Godly lifestyle= Godly rewards
My lifestyle= Ignorance that God would still move in the vision He has given me.
Don’t be discouraged, that’s not the point of this post. The point of the post is for you to understand that if you want to see God sized results, you have to live a God filled life.
Don’t be naive to think that it’s going to be easy. Much like those occasional days that you wake up to do your exercise while you’re dieting and feel stiff and feel pain, you’re going to have those times in your life.
God is never a fan of cheating the system; minimal effort and dedication will never equal a huge impact for the kingdom. Extreme sacrifice and extreme devotion to God in your life will reap the extreme impact for the kingdom.
If you want results, you’re going to have to be able to accept the consequences. Sometimes that’s being made fun of, losing friends, or anything else the world determines success as. Hold fast in the promise God has made you, believe Him to work inside you in a mighty way. We have the blessing of serving a great and powerful God.
