Devotion For Every Wednesday

What we eat….
Jeremiah 15:16

“Our words were found, and I ate them, and your words became to me a joy and the delight of my heart; for I am called by your name, O Lord, God of hosts.” 

Flamingos are known to be covered in beautifully bright colorful feathers.  The variety of colors include pink, purple, red, white and all others in-between.  The name “flamingo” derives from the Spanish or Portuguese word “flame-colored”. However, its colorful appearance is not a hereditary trait.  The birds are first born with dull gray feathers.  Their color-change depends on the food they are going to consume.  Because the flamingos’ diet is exclusively carotenoid-filled delicacies, which are largely devoured into their physical attributes, the birds develop different colors when they grow into adulthood.  Thus, it makes sense to them, “You are what you eat.” 

The word of God is a spiritual enzyme that breaks down all secular thoughts and ideas then turns them into the nutrients for our spiritual health.  What we have learned from the world as the truth is not the absolute truth that would set us free from the bondage of our sins. Everything we know needs to be filtered through the scripture and should be consumed into our soul.  Only the word of God can make us who we are as the light of the world.  We know we are the salt of the world because it was stated in the scripture. What we eat makes us who we are, so we consume the word of God, so you are shining your light to the world.
