HOW ARE YOU EATING?
Text: 1 Chronicles 29:22
“They ate and drank before the Lord on that day with great rejoicing….”
If you’re a Christian, God doesn’t want you hungry…He wants you to eat well…He wants you to eat sumptuously…He wants your family to eat well.
The long life God has promised you as a believer may be sabotaged, if you’re not eating the way God has ordained, planned and made provisions for you to eat…
The question is…How does God want you to eat?
Now…See how God wants you to eat…all the time…everyday:
>He wants you to eat in plenty and be satisfied – Read Joel 2:27.
>He wants you to eat good things – Read Psalm 103:5.
>He wants you to eat and be full- Read Deuteronomy 6:11 & 15.
>He wants you to eat without scarceness – Read Deuteronomy 8:7-9.
>He wants you to eat from barns filled with plenty – Read Proverbs 3:9-10.
>He wants you to eat from a full storehouse – Deuteronomy 28:8.
