Im Starving…and I Don’t Care (Part 2)

So If starvation cause ultimately death than we have a HUGE problem, but we have a HUGE solution, JESUS!!

Deuteronomy 8:3
He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.

Catch that?…”man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.

We must be hearing, speaking, and reading Jesus every single day. Let’s put this into perspective, we eat everyday three times a day roughly. That means we fill our bodies up every single day. So does our spirit need nourishment? Well this verse is plain we need his Word EVERYDAY to survive. We need to hear, speak, read, or pray something every day for our spirit to survive and be nourished. We must be with Christ every day!

I personally have been in a spiritual hunger for quite a couple of weeks. I’ve read every now and again, but for some reason I have been so distracted that I just haven’t even had the desire to read God’s Word. My Spirit is quivering…I begin to think about this verse, and how I am willingly starving my Spirit. I know I love to eat (as most guys do), but I would never starve my body willingly…so why my Spirit?

See Satan wants anorexia Christians who feel weak ¬†and can eventually die out ūüė¶ He wants me to starve myself and for some reasonI willingly do. Even in these “drought” season’s though I know my God wants to fill me with his Word. He continually wants to talk and speak with us about the things He wishes to do. When we eat it gives us strength to fight, without nourishment we are further prone to sin. With his word we can…

Ephesians 4:22-24
that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.

Im starving and I need to start caring, and help feed others too.

In fact I haven’t even read today…looks like it’s time to get off of Call of Duty and read…


Help…I’m Starving! (Part 1)

Some thoughts I wish to convey from the heart:

  1. How does the body react due to starvation?
    • Starvation is the most extreme form of malnutrition.
    • In humans, prolonged starvation can cause permanent organ damage and eventually, death
    • Inanition-¬†Exhaustion, as from lack of nourishment or vitality

Thank you Wikipedia!

So starvation is an absence of energy which causes the body to resort to tissues and muscles for energy. eventually this process begins to tear apart the body until the final destination is reached at death. Some of you may be asking, “Why such a morbid scene Matt?” I ask you to stay with me as I believe God is taking me on a journey of what this all entails. This is not a health lesson but I believe has a very valid point. First, we must look into what this starvation thing is to fully grasp the concept i wish to share on my heart. So for today we see this…

Starvation is:

  1. Deadly
  2. Unhealthy
  3. A cause for fatigue
  4. A way to cause serious Organ damage
  5. The single gravest threat to the world’s public health
