The Bible says, “No good thing will I withhold from those who walk uprightly.” Psalm 34 says that those who seek the Lord will not lack any good thing. This is true with food. There are things that God knows are good for us. Other things are not good for us they are not good things from God. In the garden there were a variety of things for Adam and Eve to eat. They were good things. But there were also things to eat that were not God’s good gifts for them. In fact their food choice was a matter of life and death.
When we choose what we eat and how much we eat we should be conscious of weather what we are going to eat is a good gift from God or something else. We should be aware that food choices are matters of life and death.
Today when you make your food selections, or when you choose how much you are going to eat, make it a matter of prayer. Talk with the Lord and ask Him, is this a good thing for me right now? Would it be good for me to eat this right now? Would eating this be choosing life or contributing to my death?
James said, “Be not deceived… every good and perfect gift is from above and comes down from the Father of lights.” In other words, if something is good, it is from God. If it is not from God, it is not a good thing. Develop a taste for God’s good gifts that lead to life. Walk with the Lord and ask Him what He wants you to eat today. He’s good and all his gifts are good gifts.
