Yesterday we were talking about 2 things To Not Do as far as Nutrition and improving your health.  Well I am going to continue that conversation, but not specifically with Nutrition.  And yes you have heard me speak about this before, but please keep reading.  Man this is so powerful. 

The Word- You have died with Christ, and he has set you free from the spiritual powers of this world, such as, “Dont handle! Don’t taste! Don’t touch!”?  Such rules are mere human teachings about things that deteriorate as we use them.  These rules may seem wise because they require strong devotion, pious self-denial, and severe bodily discipline.  but they provide no help in conquering a person’s evil desires. Colossians 2: 20-23

Wow.  If you are not saying “wow” to yourself right now then please go back and read those verses again.  And when you get to the bottom make sure and SEE this as you read it “but they provide NO HELP in conquering a person’s evil desires.”  Wow!  This is powerful insight and great WORD validation that putting yourself “under the Law” does not work, at least longterm anyway.  We have talked about this and talked about it and this is just more validation from the Word that following a bunch of Laws is not the answer for making True lifelong changes in your health and life.  While yes, using “law” can be of some help, it is not the answer.  And remember it is actually “the law” that gives sin its strength, according to the Word, 1 Corinthians 15:56.  See, anyone can follow “law” for a short period of time, but it does nothing as far as changing your understanding of who you are and your perception of any particular area of life you are trying to change or improve.  IN most cases people are literally just doing a bunch of actions, but nothing on the inside is changing.  Therefore, according to their “will power” they will sooner or later crumble under the Pressure and Bondage of the Law that they have put themselves under.  I hope you can see this.  Oh man this is so big. 

Now dont misunderstand.  Just like the Word, I too am not saying this is about just going out and doing anything and everything and being foolish to think that there will not be natural consequences.  No what I am saying is that having some law or better put, guidelines, to follow is a good thing.  Remember it was Paul who said that He was not under law and he literally could do anything he wanted.  He also followed that up by saying he understood too that not all things would benefit him and help him to reach his goals in life.  His goals in life of course were to be more and more Christ like and to not let anything have power over him except Christ Himself.  

Clearer and clearer this is all coming to me.  I thank God that He put this in my heart to follow and DO the vision He gave us here at God-Built: Going into all the world teaching people who they are In Christ.  I sure have a lot to work on myself in my own life, and I am so blessed that I get to help others do the same.  All this to say that this is such a huge passion that God has put in me from day one here at God-Built.  And the further I go the more I see that if I want to “improve” in any area of my life, then it is not at all about following a bunch of rules.  Using rules and or guidelines is a by product of knowing just Who I AM In CHRIST, and the power He has given me.  Again though the rules, the law, are not the foundation.  They cant be, because as the Word tells us “they provide no help for you to conquer your evil desires.”
