We get caught up. Caught up in problems, caught up in gossip, caught up in our surroundings, caught up with what others think of us, caught up in the latest show, caught up in social media, caught up with work, caught up with looking great but when do we get caught up in God?
If we replaced some of the things that we get caught up in with reading Gods word or investing personal time with the Lord like meditation and prayer how much better would we be as people? How much spiritual wealth would we obtain? God is a necessity and is needed more than the things that are essential to being healthy because God replaces illness with health and mental stability.
God is needed just like Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner is needed but we seem to put him on the back burner. We tend to not see him so we tend not to worry about his presence nor him being our “ Meal Replacement”.
Let us worry! Because “a tree planted by the rivers of water, bringeth forth his fruit in his season”. Just like we eat and grow in body mass or build muscle we grow in personal and spiritual gain and if “ we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” why are we not growing spiritually? When we grow spiritually our outlook changes, our heart and words change. Whatever you put in your body is what we are, it’s what others experience and what shines through from the relationship that we have with our father. Start getting less caught up with the world and start to get caught up with God.
