I have just discovered the most cleansing, healing, powerful and natural path to feeling like a million bucks -- physically speaking. For those of you who are dedicated to natural healing practices, it's the infamous, outrageous, and sometimes spontaneous art of the intestinal detox program! Okay, stop laughing. It works, enough said. Thanks Carol!
But as Believers I'm talking about detoxifying our minds, thoughts and our will by separating ourselves from the way of the world and walking according to the way of God's Word. Just as we should purify our body of toxins to get the old junk out (and trust me folks, it's in there) so too, should we make a concentrated effort to clean out our hearts in order to be made ready and fit for the Maaster's use.
"When the children of God go out into the "world" and partake of those things that are "of" it through a heart-fellowship with it, they leave the things of God by an act of their own will, and make the Word of God of "no effect" in their lives in that time."
Begin to realize as a child of God that you have nothing in common with the world. Yes, we are all called to preach the Gospel to the unsaved, but in no way does this mean that we are to "conform" ourselves to their ways. No justifying carnal actions and no excuses. Purifying our lives calls for obedience to the Word, period.
"Many Christians wonder why they have not experienced this relationship of Father-child to a greater degree, and the reason is that they have not yet "fully" separated themselves from the world unto the Father and His Word in 'the secret place' of His presence [the "inner chamber"]."
Faith is what pleases God. Those Believers who obey His Word become blessing recipients from the Father. The world says "see and believe." God says "believe and then you will see".
Learn to adopt an organic lifestyle, that which is simple, healthful, and as close to the way God created us to be while still on this earth. Do this by conforming to the Word of God. You'll not only look great but will reap the many benefits that intimacy with God hold for you. God bless you!
