Settling For Spiritual Peanut Butter

Settling For Spiritual Peanut Butter
I heard about a man who went on a cruise but didn’t realize the food was included in the price. While others dined on the chef’s finest dishes in the dining room, he ate peanut butter sandwiches in his room.

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!
