Why Are You Eating?
It is not what you eat but why you eat that is important to God. You can sinfully overeat carrot sticks. You can sinfully overeat celery. You can sinfully overeat any food. In Psalm 78:27 31, we see this illustrated. “He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea. ”
Now there was certainly nothing wrong with the quails since God Himself provided them. But as we read on, we are told, “So they did eat, and were well filled: (not “filled” but “well filled”) for he gave them their own desire; They were not estranged from their lust (for food). But while their meat was yet in their mouths, The wrath of God came upon them, and smote down the chosen men of Israel. ” It was not what they ate, but why they ate.
Romans 14:20 says, “All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offense. ” If after reading these Scriptures you do not have total freedom to eat all things yet, don’t eat them. Scripture says, “For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs. Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth ” (Romans 14:2,3). I believe that as you study God’s Word you will come to have this freedom. But until you do, don’t go against your conscience.
Convictions About Food Some people feel a conviction that they shouldn’t eat certain foods. I once heard Oral Roberts tell about a very precious friend who didn’t eat pork. When they ate together, his friend merely said, “Brother Oral, I feel a conviction that I should not have pork.”
Oral respected this, although he felt no such conviction. Neither tried to persuade the other of the “error of their thinking,” but lived the Scripture, “Let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth.
God never desires that individual convictions about food or drink divide His body. The question is, “Who is Lord of your life?”
Jesus reminds us in Matthew 11:18,19, “For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil. The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonousy and a winebibber. ” At one point Jesus said, “Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist” (Matthew 11:11). Yet He ate exactly the opposite of John.
During the time of my healing, there were certain foods which I knew I consistently tended to overeat. I avoided these foods as seed to the Spirit and as a way of choosing God in my eating. Now I can eat all foods with complete freedom. But start where you are.
People can get so caught up in eating or not eating certain foods that they miss the whole point—Jesus is the answer—not what foods we eat or don’t eat. Our body is not sanctified by the food we eat, but rather our food is sanctified by the Word of God and prayer.
