It's a good analogy for my behavior at times when I stupidly depend on my own resources instead of God.
I may see some results…after all, peanut butter has some nutrition.
But real change comes when I depend on God’s Word and prayer to change me.
Hebrews 4:12 says God’s Word is alive (yes!). It actively changes my heart and mind and reveals my true attitudes. If I have faith in it, memorize it and meditate on it, I will change.
You and I can dine on the peanut butter of self-help or sit at the banquet table of God’s Word. When we sign up for our salvation journey all “meals” are included!
