So just a little thinking this morning. What will it be like when those of us who know the Lord are together with him in the eternal state–the new heaven and the new earth. What will we eat? Before I gave it much thought, I assumed the laws of nutrition would be suspended and we could eat pizza, ice cream, fried chicken and the like without fear of ill health. I no longer believe that to be true. I believe that in the glorified state we will be given glorified bodies and glorified appetites and we will lose our appetite for things that are not really good.
O God, I pray today, give me an appetite for things that are truly and eternally good. Refine my heart. Help me to love what you love and long for what you long for, in the things I love and cherish and value, in the way I treat people, the my use of time, even down to my food choices. Help me to love what is good.
Refine my tastes, O Lord. Work powerfully in me through your mighty Helper, the Spirit of God, and cause me to love what you love and hate what you hate for my good and for your glory.
