Change your diet, change your life
by Ivan Ho 19 Apr 2020
People are used to certain kind of spiritual food like they do with physical food. I used to listen to certain preachers but not now. Basically I changed my diet.
As an example, let’s say you enjoy eating KFC chicken and you eat it day in day out, your body is full of the same kind of stuff that you put in even though you may not realise it. The stuff that you put in regularly will either keep you healthy or slowly build harmful things inside without you realising it. People are not born with diabetes, it is all caused by the food they eat everyday. Western medicals will tell you to take pills until you die to control diabetes without healing your diabetic condition. The real lasting treatment is to change your diet.
In the same way, if you want to have healthy and strong spiritual life, you need to be careful who you listen to. Basically your input determines your output. Some food you receive will satisfy your appetite without building the well being of your inner man. No one is born spiritually stronger than others. No one is born a man or woman of God. It’s all to do with what spiritual input they receive regularly and how they allow it to change their lives.
The best teacher of the word of God is none other than the Holy Spirit. He is the one Person who teaches me most if not all things about God. Other people who contribute to my spiritual growth are the ones God brings into my life. Over the years, I never go and look for spiritual fathers or teachers. Paul did not seek out Ananias, David did not connect with Samuel because he heard him speak on the internet. They were divine appointments set up by God Himself.
Ultimately the Holy Spirit is our best Teacher, Counselor, Comforter and source of spiritual input.
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
